He was a Beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Friend and Extraordinary Musician. Born on June 4, 1941, in Oshkosh, WI to the late Ralph Lehnigk and Mildred (Cavanaugh) Lehnigk. He was the second eldest son of four boys: Jack (Robin), Gene (Gayle) and Glenn Lehnigk. The family later moved to Pewaukee, WI Tomm graduated from Waukesha South High in 1959. He started singing with the band the Sultans, playing in Oshkosh and Fond du Lac areas. He then joined the Air Force in 1961 and was stationed in Turkey. After 4 years in service he rejoined the band with a new name, the Tumbleweeds and played the Jolly Fisherman, Nick’s Nickabob, White Oaks and many other clubs.

He loved playing 50's, 60's & Contemporary Rock covering Artists such as the Everly Bros, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, Roy Orbison, Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, CCR and many more.
