  Thomas John, son of Wayne and Gloria (Burrs) Stille, was born Sept. 3, 1967 in Belmond. Tom grew up in Goodell and graduated from Belmond High School in 1986. After high school, he worked for Pioneer Cleaning Service at Eaton Corporation, and later at Winnebago Industries for over 26 years.

  Tom loved golfing and fantasy football with his buddies. He enjoyed going to auctions and buying and selling collectibles and antiques. Tom’s favorite pastime was watching the Minnesota Vikings and Iowa Hawkeyes. He would often be seen riding around town in his golf cart with his dog, and after a Vikings win, they’d be wearing their Vikings jerseys.

  Tom was a kind, easy- going guy with a good sense of humor. He valued all of his friendships and respected everyone. His family, including his dogs, were important to him, and he loved every one of them.

  He was preceded in death by his parents; brother Steve ‘Beav’; cousins Cale, Kevin and Andy; uncles Mac, Marlin and John; aunts Maxine and Jan; and brother-in-law Chuck.

  Tom is survived by his brothers Gene (Diana) Stille and Mark (Ginger) Stille, all of Goodell; sister Lisa Darner of Boone; and nephew and niece Cody and Jessica.
