Tom was born September 28, 1951, at Langdon, ND to Stewart and Elin (Byron) Moore. He grew up in the Mountain area and graduated from Edinburg High School in 1969. On November 28, 1970, he married Pamela Rose Johannesson at Gardar, ND. Tom and Rose lived their whole lives in the Mountain area. Tom called this ‘God’s Country’ and would never reside anywhere else. He worked for Bernhoft Farms for 30+ years. Those years never felt like a job, but time spent with an extension of family dear to him. He was happiest being a self-employed cattleman and farmer. He worked hard from sun-up to sun-down tenderly caring for all his animals and land. He taught by his example to work hard but LOVE harder. In 2006, he and Rose began operating PRM Trucking until May 2018. He also worked for Olafson Brothers and Dahl Trucking. He served on the Mountain Fire Department as Chief for many years and the Vikur Lutheran Church Council, where he served in several capacities.

In addition to spending time on his farm, Tom’s greatest joys were watching his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren grow. He attended as many of their activities and events as he could. During time spent at the farm, he taught his family many great life lessons. He taught them at a very young ‘illegal’ age how to drive in the meadows around bales. He taught them how to accurately drive into the ditch so you would not roll. He coasted down Schroeder Hill in several vehicles full of his children and grandchildren and nearly made it ½ way to Hensel on several attempts. Tom also enjoyed a good dice or card game. He spent many winter Sundays playing games with family and friends. He took every opportunity to joke or prank just to share a good laugh.

He is survived by his loving family; wife, Rose, daughters: Tammy (Shane) Burns, Michelle Lorenzen, and Jonina (Michael) Schumacher, grandchildren: Alison (Beau) Rutherford, Logan Burns (Jaden Prigge), Stephanie Burns (Jayden LaHaise), Cecelia Burns, Kristan (Tyrel) Ellingson, Dustin Lorenzen (Ronica Helgoe), Thomas Schumacher, Emily Schumacher, and Andrew Schumacher, great-grandchildren: Davis Rutherford, Camron Rutherford, and Evan Ellingson. Also surviving are siblings: Stewart (Lois) Moore, Alfred (Theresa) Moore, Dorothy (Allen) Robinson, Timothy (Sylvia) Moore and Susie (Ron) Borgen. Rose’s siblings: Joan Byzewski, Keith Johannesson (Sue Rosenberg), Nancy (Rocky) Lawson, and Shelly Gratton. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews who were all dear to his heart.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Stewart and Elin Moore, grandchild Baby Schumacher, sisters, Martha Johnson and Judy Vigen, brothers-in-law, Gary Johnson and Nels Vigen, Rose’s parents, Ingebjorg and James Johannesson, sister-in-law, Sheila Johannesson.
