Dr. Thomas "Doc" Lynn Scharffe, D.P.M., of Bay City age 73, passed away on June 14, 2017. He was born on October 4, 1943 in Bay City to parents Beryl and Katherine (Stoyke). Tom took over his father's successful podiatry practice and became very well known and respected in the community before he retired in 1996. Tom will be remembered for many things, but especially for his loud, boisterous laugh that everyone recognized, and for his storytelling. He had a way with words and would capture an audience with his larger than life stories. He lived his life with the philosophy that tomorrow was never guaranteed; he lived every day to its fullest and left no page unturned. Tom enjoyed spending time with his friends playing cards. He relished cooking large family meals and playing games into the wee hours. Tom will be lovingly remembered by his children: Deb Watson, Fred Scharffe, Rebecca (Jeff) BaCote; grandchildren: Hastings and Jaevyn; siblings: Sue Ann (Fritz) Bublitz, Lou Ann (Dennis) Schumacher, and Doug Scharffe; and a large, close family that includes many nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews. He was preceded in death by both parents; sister, Sandra (Duane) Nickless. As were his wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family celebration of life will take place. Those desiring may make memorial contributions to the American Diabetes Association.
