Thomas Condon
Thomas “Tom” LeRoy Condon, 87, of Silver Lake, died Sunday, June 1, 2016, surrounded by his loving family, at Glencoe Regional Health Services Long Term Care.
A concelebrated Mass of Christian Burial was held Monday, June 6, at Holy Family Catholic Church in Silver Lake with the Revs. Paul Schumacher, Tony Stubeda and Todd Petersen officiating.
Honorary pallbearers were Nic Bacon, Daniel Condon, Timothy Fiecke, Josh Forcier, Jedediah Rasmussen, John Condon, Thomas Condon and Greg Condon.
Pallbearers were Mr. Condon’s six sons, Thomas Jr., James, Stephen, Vincent, Charles and Paul Condon. Interment was in the St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Silver Lake.
Thomas “Tom” LeRoy Condon was born Aug. 27, 1928, in St. Cloud. He lived most of his youth at Forest City and Cedar Mills. He met the love of his life, Virginia Baune, at a Whoopie John dance in Olivia. Seven months later, they were married on Nov. 10, 1953, at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Wabasso. Early in their marriage, they lived in Hutchinson. They outgrew their small house and in 1970 moved to their farm near Silver Lake. For the past 16 years, the couple wintered at Pine to Palm Resort Park in Weslaco, Texas, where he ran the Bingo games for many years.
Mr. Condon worked as a truck driver for 37 years at Hutchinson Manufacturing and, since 1970, he farmed on the side. He was blessed to have worked two careers that he loved.
He enjoyed playing cards and Yahtzee, visiting relatives, teasing Mom to stir up her dander as he winked at the kids, taking Sunday drives after church to check out the area fields, going on daily walks up and down the rows in his own fields as he was proud of his crops, and taking his kids long on rides in the truck.
Along with three of his brothers-in-law, he was a charter member of the Knights of Columbus at St. Anastasia Catholic Church in Hutchinson. He currently was a KC member at Holy Family in Silver Lake. He was very faithful to his Catholic faith and never missed Mass without a very good reason.
He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Virginia, and their children, Barbara Stelzner, Thomas (Rhonda) Condon, Veronica (Paul) Fiecke, James (Kathy) Condon, Stephen (Kathy) Condon, Vincent (Rose) Condon, Charles (Julie) Condon, Liz (Mike) Bacon, Gina Riss, Bernadette (Craig) Rasmussen and Paul (Bethany) Condon; siblings, Betty Maresch, Ardella (Joseph) O’Fallon, Diane (John) Bastian and Michael Condon; 41 grandchildren, Jennifer Hunt, Rebecca Aase, Thomas Condon, Erik (Hannah) Condon, Kara Condon, Shannon Fiecke, Dustin Fiecke, Timothy Fiecke, Andrew Fiecke, Jacob (Heather) Condon, Daniel (Shelly) Condon, Laura Condon, Theresa (Mike) Lucin, Samantha Condon, Christopher Condon, Kimberly Condon, Allison Condon, John (Jennifer) Condon, Michael (Kristen) Condon, Michelle (Nick) Pramann, Ted Condon, Lee Condon, Nick Bacon, Amber Bacon, Cody Bacon, Mikenzee Bacon, Natasha Forcier, Joshua Forcier, Justin Forcier, Brianna Forcier, Jedediah Rasmussen, Hosanna (Rob) Termaat, Christian Rasmussen, Greg Condon, Jeremy Condon and Nicole Condon; stepgrandchildren, Cody Jensen, Nate Smith, Zach Smith and Emelia Smith; 16 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
