Thomas Harrison Thoele entered this world as a force of nature on December 1, 1964. Tom was born the youngest of 9 children to Aubrey (dec.) and Mary (dec.) Thoele. They had a full house already, but with Tom, they were complete.

Tom had a sometimes shocking and always electric personality. He lived to make you laugh. He was Devilishly & Deviously funny! When he wasn’t shocking you with some ridiculous thing he was planning to do, he was an incredible and accomplished carpenter, who loved his work. If you needed it, he could fix it or build it. He was even named in the “Book of Who’s Who” when he worked for Structural Associates. He was currently working with Merrit and Associates.

Tom grew up in Grand Junction, but his favorite place was Lake Powell. The Thoele Family spent a lot of time there, and held deep memories for him, of his family having fun all together. It was his home away from home. Tom and Holly had a boat at Lake Powell as well.Over the years tons and tons of fun, mischief and adventure was had. He was always up for a party and threw quite a few.

Tom left this world on September 3, 2019 at 1:00 a.m. He was with wonderful friends Brody, Kelsie (Red) and Scott having a great time. He was joking around until the very last minute. He will be missed by many.

Tom is survived by his siblings Barbara Alberty, Mark Thoele, Rita Thoele & Robert Thoele (dec.), Paulette Roskos, Jeanné Thoele and Joseph Thoele & Jeffery Thoele (dec.) He is also survived by his ex-wife Holly Owen, his forever person.
And his dog Tess.

And since Tom wouldn't have it any other way there will be a Going Away Party at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 3, 2019 at Wrigley Field Sports Bar, 1810 North Ave. Grand Junction, CO 81501.
