ForeverMissed
Thomas “Tom” James Frey, 59, passed away February 10, 2021 after a valiant battle with colon cancer. Affectionately known as “Scuzz”, Tom grew up in Prescott, WI, born to Paul and Joanne (Schommer) Frey on August 20, 1961.


Tom graduated from Prescott Senior High in 1979. After which, he had a variety of jobs and moved around the country living in different states, most notably Florida. Tom returned from his travels and opened Boat Drinks in the summer of 1992. After running the bar, he went on to sell cars, houses, and even tried his hand at sealcoating. No matter the job, Tom enjoyed the work and made countless friends.


He loved many things, but his favorite had to be catching up over a drink downtown; always enjoying the riverview, good music, and Wisconsin sports. An exceptional storyteller, Tom was known to always have a smile on his face, and treated everyone as though they were family. His ability to live life in the moment was unmatched. 


Tom is survived by children Nik (Sara) Kennedy, Josh, Jake and Liana Frey, as well as three grandchildren, Ellie, Jackson and Porter; siblings Patti (Mark) Most and Bill (Teresa) Frey.


He is preceded in death by his parents and younger brother Mike “Biggs” Frey.


A celebration of life will be held this summer.

I absolutely adore Scuzz. He always made me feel welcome and cared for. There isn’t anything that Scuzz wouldn’t do fo anyone. We truly lost such a. Amazing person and it saddens me so much that I didn’t get to talk him because his passing. I’ve been battling stage 3 cancer, and no, not trying to take attention away from Scuzz, just explaining why my presence wasn’t there recently as I was fighting for my life. One I know Scuzz would approve. I love you Scuzz. Thank you for all the laughter and love. You will never be forgotten.

Tomasina.....You goofball. It will take more than one candle to replace the shine in your eyes. You are missed.

Prescott legend

Scuzz was a Prescott legend!  He was always good for a story, a tune or two on the local watering hole jukebox, or just a quick drink in the sun, watching life go by in downtown Prescott.  Attached is Tom in his Santa Scuzz sweater and me, one of his greatest admirers!  His smiling face and personality will definitely be missed.
