He attended college for a few years at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota, before entering the United States Army in 1964. He served in the Army from 1964-66 and was primarily stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska. On May 6, 1967 he was united in marriage to Beth Lanoue at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Marshall, Minnesota. For over 51 years they made their home in Ghent, Minnesota. Tom worked for 43 years as a sheet metal fabricator for Bisbee Mechanical in Marshall, MN. He retired in 2009. After retirement, Tom enjoyed fishing, golfing and camping. He was an avid athlete in high school, especially in baseball. In 2016 he was inducted into the Minneota Viking Hall of Fame. His greatest joy was spending time with his grandsons, Thomas Brewers of Sioux Falls, SD, Peyton Nuy of Sioux Falls, SD, Preston Nuy of Taunton, MN, and Hayden Brewers of Beresford, SD.

Beth, Chris, Greg and family, We are so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. I remember many Saturday trips with Tom and Dad taking us kids to bullhead fish while the moms were working! I feel we lost another great man but God gained another great one! We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. Mary Jo (Illies) Remick
