Thom was born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin to Henry and Alyce Thompson. Thom graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1950. While at the University Thom met and later married his first wife Elizabeth Witte - the professor's daughter. Thom and Liz had five children. Though Thom's degree was in zoology, he became a professional engineer and worked for General Electric for 25 years before starting his own metal working machine shop, T&E Manufacturing in Kent, Washington. He enjoyed woodworking, gardening, reading, life long learning, family and worshipping the Lord. His expertise in household maintenance and his witty sense of humor will be greatly missed.
After Liz passed away, Thom married Esther Guay whom he was married to for 18 years before she also preceded him in death.
On January 2, 2015, Thom married Mildred Redding with whom he blissfully enjoyed his last year on this earth.
Thom is survived by his children: Pat (Randy Clark), Mike (Kim), Dick (Becky), Tom (Mary) and Ann (Pete Crabb), nineteen grandchildren and nineteen great grandchildren and sister Joyce. He was preceded in death by his parents and younger brother Dave.
The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to Mission Aviation Fellowship, 112 N. Pilatus Ln., Nampa, ID 83687.
