  • ​Thomas Mark Highfill, age 65, of Overland, MO, passed on Thursday, April 12, 2018.

    Tom was the beloved son of Ann and the late Raymond J. Highfill; dearest brother of Janet Dunlap and Steven & Tracey Highfill; dear uncle of Audrey, Tobias and Emily Highfill; dear nephew, cousin and friend of many.

    Tom graduated from Ritenour Senior High School and Southwest Missouri State, and he spent his career working retail/sales jobs. Even during his four year fisticuffs with cancer, he enjoyed playing golf (highlight was a hole-in-one), bowling, and softball with his strong circle of friends, many of which he had for life, who enjoyed his wit and humor that revealed sharp intellect and insight. He played bridge with his family (sometimes under duress). Yet, with all this going on, he also devoted a great deal of time volunteering with Ritenour Co-Care Food Pantry.

    A connoisseur of all the flavors life offered, Tom was a high-quality BBQ chef, gourmand, and all around good guy.  He never complained about anything - except bad calls against the Cardinals.

    Services: Memorial Service at New Horizons Presbyterian Church, 9424 Everman Ave., Overland on Saturday, April 28, 11 a.m. Friends may visit with his family in the hour prior to the service. 

    Memorials: Donations appreciated to Ritenour Co-Care Food Pantry (P.O. Box 142542, Overland, MO 63114) or Foundation for Barnes-Jewish, Siteman Cancer Center (1001 Highlands Plaza Dr. W., Ste. 140, St. Louis, MO 63110).
