On May 26, 1938 in Minneapolis, MN, parents Harold and Sylvia (Knutson) celebrated the birth of their son, Thomas. He was the youngest of two children. Along with his brother Roger, he enjoyed fishing and having adventures—occasionally finding mischief along the way.
Thomas attended Southwest High School and graduated in 1956. Following this he enlisted in the Army. Later, he began working at Qualitone as a purchasing agent. A hardworking man, Thomas worked until he suffered a heart attack in 2009. In retirement, he enjoyed making his rounds to the local stores in Prior Lake. Thomas knew the employees and loved to socialize with them.
On February 10, 1962, Thomas married his high school sweetheart, Charlotte. They were blessed with 57 years together and three boys. Thomas was a kind, loyal husband and father. He shared his love of the outdoors with family and made many great memories up north at the cabin.
Thomas is survived by wife, Char; sons, Richard and Glenn; grandchildren, Brendan, Kendra, Kara, Addison, McKenna, and Aiden; stepsisters, Susan and Pam. He is preceded in death by his son, Robert; brother, Roger; parents, Harold and Sylvia.Print Obituary & Condolences
