Thomas "Tom" W. Rehfield, 70, of Bartlett, IL and formerly of Carol Stream, IL, died at his home surrounded by family on August 27, 2019. Tom is survived by his loving wife Mary Conlon Rehfield of 46 years, sons Patrick (Patricia) Rehfield and Christopher (Marianne) Rehfield, daughters Kate (Alan) Feutz, Susan (Matthew) Stowman and Sarah (Neal) Cole, brothers George (late Jill) and John (Joanne), twelve grandchildren Aidan, Ella, Sean, Madeline, Conor, McKenzie, Andie, Aubrey, Blake, Henry, Evan and Reagan, and many loving nieces, nephews and extended family.

Tom was a graduate of Northwestern University where he studied music (as a tenor), which played a large role in his life. He performed with summer stock musical theater while younger, participated in choirs wherever his family attended church and regularly sang with his family at home. Tom was a lifetime Chicagoan and an avid Chicago sports fan, including the Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks and 2016 World Series Champion Cubs. When Tom was not spending time with his kids and grandchildren, he spent time as a member of the Knights of Columbus, Resurrection church men’s group and participated in the PADs ministry. His faith and his family (followed closely by the Cubs) were of fundamental importance in his life. He encouraged and instilled the importance of volunteering, being grateful and humble.

Visitation will be Friday, September 6th, 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm at the Countryside Funeral Home and Crematory 950 South Bartlett Rd. (at Stearns Rd.) Bartlett. Funeral services will be Saturday, September 7th, beginning with prayers at the funeral home at 10:45 am and a processional to Resurrection Catholic Church 30W350 Army Trail Rd, Wayne, IL, for an 11:30 a.m. mass. Cremation will be private at the Countryside Crematory following Mass.

A celebration of Tom's life will be held immediately following mass from 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm at the Mago Grill, 100 W. Higgins Road, Suite M-05 South Barrington, Il. 60010, (in the Arboretum of South Barrington) phone: 847-884-4400.

Private Condolence

Dear Mary and family,
I wanted to offer my condolences and prayers as you gather today to celebrate Tom's life. I have many fond memories of getting to know all of you during my years at FHC and during the wedding for Chris and Marianne. I am unable to attend the Funeral Mass today due to a funeral and wedding today at my parish, Saint Joan of Arc. I will most especially remember all of you during the Masses this weekend.
Father Kenneth Anderson
