Thomas "Tom" Tolson from Wasilla, Alaska, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, at his cabin on Aug. 3, 2017. He was surrounded by his family.
Born on July 19, 1948, in Opp, Ala., he was the youngest of five. Tom moved to Fairbanks, Alaska, in 1964, and graduated from Lathrop High School. He entered the Army, where he received the Bronze Star and was a Vietnam veteran.
Tom married the love of his life, Carolyn Ashmore, on Feb. 28, 1970. They had two daughters Tina, and Theresa.
Tom retired from Alascom after working there for 30 years. Tom loved Alaska, the outdoors, fishing, hunting and his cabin life at Lake Susitna. He was the most generous man who was always willing to help anyone out. His heart was made of gold and he hugged and laughed like no other. Since retirement he traveled all over the county and found a job volunteering at dog shows around the state of Alaska with his wife, Carolyn.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m., at Sirius Ranch, 6151 East Upper Court, Palmer, AK 99654.
