Born in Gilbert, Minnesota on May 23, 1940 to Frank and Ella (Kosir) Moren. Preceded in death by father Frank, mother Ella and son Dan. Survived by wife Becky; son Dale Moren, daughter Luana Goodnough, son Allen (Kim) Moren, son Jeffrey (Colleen) Patterson, daughter Shari Patterson and daughter-in-law Anne (Dan) Patterson; grandchildren, Sheena, Darrick, Shantez, Karl, Tyler, Sabrina, Abby, Thomas, Brady, Zhi Zhi and Emily; great-grandchildren Keaton, Destiny, Delilah, Zeven, Tora, Mason, and Natasha. Tom was a wonderful husband, father, and best friend. A talented artist: including painting, stained glass and woodwork. He learned electrician skills at Dunwoody, but was self-taught in plumbing and carpentry. You name it he would figure out how to do it and fix it. His professional career was as a computer programmer. He exercised on a regular basis, played senior softball, bowled in a league, played cards at the White Bear Lake senior center, was an active member of the Twin Cities Slovenian Club, a devoted and active member of St. Stephen Lutheran Church and still found time to take care of his family as his first priority. He made friends over the years everywhere he went. He will be missed by many. We define our lives by our memories: Memories of Joy, Sadness, Gratitude, Pride, Grief, Despair, Remorse, Passion, Regret, Hope. But the strongest memories we carry with us are ones of Love.
