Thomas C. "Tom" Howe 1953- 2021 Thomas Charles Howe (Tom) passed away on April 6, 2021. Tom was born on September 23, 1953 to Milo Seth Howe and Delma Isabella (Hunt) Howe in Laramie, Wyoming. He grew up in Laramie with his four siblings. He graduated from Laramie High School in 1972 and went on to attend the University of Wyoming and Brigham Young University. Laramie is also where he met his wife, Trudy Margaret Johnson. They were married in Ogden, Utah on August 14, 1973. Tom spent his career as an exceptional employee of the Union Pacific Railroad out of Rawlins and Cheyenne, Wyoming as a brakeman, conductor, and engineer. He dearly loved his hometown and retired to Laramie in 2013. He served the Laramie community during his retirement through his work with the High Plains Curmudgeons Society.
Throughout his life, Tom enjoyed spending time with those he loved. He served others selflessly. He loved his neighbors and was loved by them. He especially loved helping his family, no matter what was required of him. He always put others needs ahead of his own. He went about quietly doing good all his life. He was involved in Boy Scouts of America for many years and helped all his sons obtain their Eagle Scout award. He especially enjoyed participating in the Pinewood Derby with his sons and grandsons. He often helped other scouts with their cars when they needed him. He enjoyed working on bicycles throughout his life, frequently repairing bicycles for people he knew, or refurbishing them for others to enjoy.
There are not adequate words to express the love and joy he brought to the lives of those that knew him. He will be missed and always loved.
He survived by his wife Trudy M. Howe, his children and their spouses Andrew, Benjamin and Krista, Aaron and Sarah, Jenna and Jesus Archuleta, Christopher and Ariela, his brothers and their spouses Roger and Sue, Donald and Sheri, brother-in-law Dick Sancousie, and sister-in-law Rosie Howe. He is also survived by fifteen grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Milo and Delma, his sister Carolyn, his brother Jon, his daughters Crystal and Teri, and grandson Leo.
