Tom Miesner

George Straight playing on the radio, two stepping around the kitchen with his wife and kids, fishing trips with his siblings, playing the car game and having a chat while swinging on the porch, sharing cold beers out in the garage are just some of what made Tom smile.  He had the best smile.  Tom Miesner was born and raised in Coffeyville, with two great parents, Gene and Pat, who have preceded him in death. He attended Field Kindley High School, graduating in 1973. He later finished his education at Coffeyville Community College.  He met and married the love of his life, Patti, and together with his four kids and her two, they became the modern day Brady Bunch.

Tom has never met a stranger.  He had a gift of making everybody feel like they too, were part of his big LOUD family.  He spent his career of 40 plus years, climbing the ladder at Funks Manufacturing/John Deere.  In the years his kids attended high school, he with Patti by his side prided himself on being the Sideliners President.  As his kids graduated, he took his love for the community and became an active member of the Lions Club.  He had a ball working the booth at the fair and serenading the shoppers while ringing the bells at Christmas. 

He was a devout Lutheran, attending church at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.  After earning the trust of the preacher he worked his way through the ranks, starting as an usher and moving up to President of the Congregation .  If you were lucky enough to get a garage invite, you would know that he lived for his family and his faith. Above all else he loved nothing more than being a Papa, and spending time working in the shop building & painting creations with his 15 grandchildren.  This was where he shined.

He is survived by his wife Patti and his six children, Jill her husband Spencer and their two children Garrett, his wife Lily and Lindsay; Kyle; Kelly and her children Dani and Sol; Kate her husband Bill and their children, Haley, Ella, Claire, Leah, Ethan, Morgan, Ali, Olivia and John; Anne and her husband Wade; Kristi and her husband Tommy with their son Mason, along with his brothers Phil, Ron and sister Sheri and a huge extended family of many nieces, nephews and cousins and friends.

Wednesday, January 10, 2024, the Miesner family will receive friends from 6 to 8pm at Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel, 2405 Woodland Ave. in Coffeyville.  A Celebration of Tom's life will be held on Thursday January 11, 2024 at 10am at Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel, with Pastor Jon Franson officiating.  Honoring his wishes cremation to take place under the direction of Ford-Wulf Bruns Chapel following Thursday's service.   Tom's request was for memorial donations be made payable to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Coffeyville and may be left in care of the chapel.  To leave a message of condolences or share a memory visit
