Tom Birkes

TomI have been offering Advance Planning and Aftercare Concierge Services to client families in McLennan and Bell Counties since 2004. I enjoy the opportunity to assist families in exploring the different options in planning one’s own service in advance, as well as offering encouragement and consolation after the loss of a loved one.

I am a native of Waco and a graduate of University High School and Tarleton State University. I served in the National Guard from 1969 to 1975. I worked as a counselor with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and retired in 2010. I am an active member of St. Eugene Catholic Church in McGregor.

I appreciate the sensitive, simple philosophy of the Shehorn family at Lake Shore Funeral Home as they offer their services to Waco and the surrounding communities. Please call me at (254) 752-5900 or email me at if I may help you in any way.
