Sympathy to the Rake Famiy
Posted by Jack Wall on September 9, 2020, 11:34 am
On Saturday morning we received the tragic news that one of our most dedicated breeders, friend and advisor Mr. Tom Rake of Waunakee, Wisconsin had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Not knowing how to react to this shocking news, we simply shared with our swine world friends and awaited the family to make the arrangements needed. This morning son Tim informed me that private family services will be held this Friday and the family will entertain a celebration of life memorial at the Rake Farm on Saturday October 10 near Waunakee, Wisconsin. The family is truly blessed with the outpouring of generosity and kindness expressed during these past 4 days. When more details are known, I will share them with all of you. Many of us has lost a friend, leader, support arm and ambassador when Tom Rake left us. Our deepest sympathy to Diane and the Rake Family. We miss you Tom Rake.
