Thomas Roberts Aikmus, 36, of Liberty, MO, passed away January 2, 2022, at St. Luke's Plaza Hospital.
Tom, or TR as he was known by many, was born January 9, 1985, the son of Thomas Edward Aikmus and Shari Lou Roberts.
TR grew up in Liberty and graduated from Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington, MO. There he was a member of the Honor Guard, football, track and golf teams. He later studied Automotive Engineering at Longview Community College. TR worked in Truck Trim Assembly at Ford Motor Company in Claycomo and was a member of the UAW.
Along with his parents, Tom and Shari, TR leaves a sister, Alyx Bartrom, husband Ross, and their sons Brody, Leo and Bear; a brother, Cory F. Aikmus, wife Paige, and their daughter Aurora. He also leaves his girlfriend, Kendra Grover, and her daughters, Sophia and Piper; as well as aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
TR was a big man with an even bigger heart ... kind, gentle, loving and devoted to his family and friends. He was adored by his nephews, niece and Kendra's girls. If the activity had anything to do with family or friends, TR was all in.
TR was an avid gamer and was a highly intelligent man who could solve almost any electronic or mechanical problem. He could rebuild a computer mentally and physically! His passions also included the Royals, Chiefs, Mizzou Tigers and golf.
