Tom was an active member at Salem Lutheran Church, serving on the church council for many years.  He was very involved with local Montevideo Boy Scouts, where Tom earned his Eagle Scout in 1970 and The Vigil Honor 1973.  He loved nothing more than spending time outside, hunting, fishing, and trapping.  Tom was also an amazing cook and was happy to show off his cooking ability to his family and friends.

Tom is survived by his four children, Nathan (Brooke) Fossell, of Sioux Falls, SD, Jeremy Fossell, of St. Cloud, MN, Adam Fossell, of Montevideo, MN, and Kane (Whitney) Fossell, of Marshall MN; grandchildren, Ethen, Quincey, Navy and Riley; sisters, Marlys Fossell, of Montevideo, MN, and Sharon (Woody) Brown, of Bloomington, MN; and numerous family and friends.
