November 10, 1946 – November 6, 2016
Age 69 of Minneapolis. Survived by sons Don (Marcy) and Russel (RJ); grandsons Mason and Jack; siblings Jerry (Ann), Anne Koss, Mary Johnson, John; and nephews, nieces and cousins. Preceded in death by parents Russell and Gerene and brother Mike. Born in St. Paul; grew up in Excelsior; graduated Minnetonka HS and MCTC; attended U of MN and Metro State U. Loved his family, learning, good food and crossword puzzles. Our sincere gratitude for the kind, caring and professional care provided by Fr. Sebastien B. and the staffs of HCMC, the Benedictine Health Center (especially Monica) and Twin Cities Hospice (especially Amy and Erica). No service. Memorials preferred to American Cancer Society. God speed Tom as the angels carry you to Paradise. (Published in Star Tribune on Nov. 12, 2016)
