Mark Allen Thomas

September 27, 1951 — April 30, 2021

Mark Allen Thomas was born September 27, 1951 to Dorothy (Ward) and Arnold Thomas.  He passed away at his home on April 30, 2021.  A public visitation will be held at St. Louis Catholic Church in Foreston on Thursday, May 6, 2021 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. A private memorial service will be held for family.

Mark was born in Graceville MN but grew up north of Pierz.  For the past 37 years he has made his home in Foreston.   He held various roles in the dairy industry including working at the Foreston Creamery, Little Rock Creamery, and Pierz Co-op.  For the last ten years of his career until retirement in 2014 he was a salesman for Form A Feed.  He truly enjoyed his career and it never felt like work to him.  He spent 22 years as a volunteer firefighter with the Foreston Fire Department.  He also served several terms on the Foreston City Council.  He loved ice fishing, hunting, socializing at the local tavern, motorcycling, playing guitar, agate collecting and of course, his Minnesota Vikings.  Mark was adventurous and always ready for the next great adventure.  He was outgoing and made friends easily.  If you were his friend, you were his friend for life.   He was always ready with a good joke to share with you.   He will be deeply missed by all who loved him.   

He is survived by his children, Kristine (Mark) Levandowski, Sartell MN and Scott Thomas, Foreston MN; his grandson Hunter Gronewold, Ormsby MN; and his beloved faithful companion, Rascal; his mother, Dorothy Thomas;  sister, Mary (Butch) Parent;  brothers Mike (Sharon) Thomas, Marvin (Valerie) Thomas, and Tim (Mary) Thomas as well as many nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded in death by his father, Arnold Thomas.
