Thomas D. Greisch made a lifelong career at Port Washington State Bank.
    He was hired by the bank as a cashier after graduating from Marquette University with a degree in business administration in 1955.
    Mr. Greisch was drafted into the U.S. Army and served at Fort Benning, Ga., for three years, then returned to his hometown and his career at the bank.
    He worked there for 40 years, until his retirement in 1995.
    But even then, Mr. Greisch continued his affiliation with the bank, becoming a member of the board of directors.
    Mr. Greisch held that position until his death at Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital Ozaukee in Mequon on Tuesday, Oct. 3. He was 84.
    Mr. Greisch was a Port Washington native, born on Aug. 31, 1933, to Mathias and Florence Moegenburg Greisch.
    He grew up in the family home on St. Mary’s Hill and attended St. Mary’s grade school before graduating from Port Washington High School in 1951.
    Like his two brothers, Mr. Greisch became an altar boy and was often called on to serve Mass both at the church and St. Mary’s convent chapel.
    One of his fondest memories was ringing the bells of St. Mary’s as a child and swinging on the bell rope, his family said.
    “He loved that,” his daughter Cathy Pohl said of his bell ringing.
    Mr. Greisch was a religious man who attended Mass “until the day he couldn’t,” his daughter said.
    A lifelong member of St. Mary’s Church — now part of St. John XXIII Parish — he was often tapped to help with the parish’s fundraising efforts.
    “He was good at it,” his daughter said.  “They needed a new organ. He was instrumental in getting the funding for it. They needed to restore the stained glass windows. He was instrumental in getting the funds for that.”        Mr. Greisch married Mary Biever at St. Mary’s Catholic Church on Aug. 6, 1955.
    “His hobby was his family,” his daughter said. “He was a very quiet man, a family-oriented man.
    “Everything my parents did was for us, with us. He enjoyed family functions and celebrations.”
    But most of all, she said, he enjoyed Christmas.
    “He loved Christmas,” she said. “He went all out.”
    Mr. Greisch was a member of the Port Washington Rotary Club, serving for many years as its secretary and one term as president, as well as the Port Washington Historical Society, Friends of Harrington Beach State Park and the Port Washington Jaycees.
    He was a font of information about the city, his daughter noted.
    “He was a wealth of information,” she said. “He knew where everything used to be and the dates things changed. He loved Port Washington and spent his life here.”
    Mr. Greisch and his wife also enjoyed traveling throughout the world as well as spending time at their lake cottage in northern Wisconsin.
    Mr. Greisch is survived by his wife Mary of Port Washington; children Catherine (Michael) Pohl of Belgium, Christine (Bruce) Maechtle and Mary (James) Monday, both of Port Washington, Thomas (Maria) of Mequon, and Martha (Robert) Bichler of Gibbsville; and grandchildren Andrew and Daniel (fiancé Kendall Strupp) Pohl, Craig (Katie) Maechtle, Adam and Sarah Maechtle, Eric Kempfer, Katie, Alison, and Anna Greisch, Larissa, Aimee, Jenna, Natalie, and Collin Bichler.
    Mr. Griesch is further survived by his brother James (Jennie) Greisch, sister Carol Peiffer and sister-in-law Lois Greisch.
    He was preceded in death by his parents Mathias and Florence Greisch, brothers Robert and William “Bounce” Greisch, brother-in-law, Donald “Fissy” Peiffer and parents-in-law Vincent and Agnes Biever.
    A Mass of Christian burial will be held for Mr. Greisch at noon Saturday, Oct. 7, at St. John XXIII Parish, St. Mary’s Catholic Church, in Port Washington. Father Patrick Wendt will officiate.
    Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, at Eernisse Funeral Home in Port Washington and at the church Saturday from 11 a.m. until the Mass.
    Burial with military honors will be at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Port Washington.
    Memorials to the parish’s building fund are suggested.
