Thomas Stenoien

Stenoien Thomas

We regretfully announce the passing of Thomas (Tom) William Stenoien.  He, and his beloved Boston Terrier, Judge, were taken from us tragically and unexpectedly on January 14th, 2023. He was 71.  His family and many friends are deeply saddened and shocked by his untimely death.  Tom was born on March 11, 1951, in Minneapolis.  He lived in Crosslake, Minnesota and Goodyear, Arizona and was a loving husband, father, uncle, grandfather, and sibling.  He is survived by his wife, Mary Jo, his three sons Matthew (Shari), Michael, and David (Shannon), his five grandchildren (Mallori, Nicolas, Keira, Aubrey, Ella) and several loving friends.  Thomas was full of vigor; was adventurous and lived life to the fullest. Anyone who knew him would say that he was the most hard-working, insightful, caring, kind and generous person. He loved with his entire being and poured his heart into every relationship he had and everything he did. He did anything for anyone in need; was personable and made people happy. He engaged others and made them laugh, think, and strive to be the best version of themselves. He will be forever loved and remembered. We will miss him more than words can say but take some solace knowing that he is with God in heaven.  We appreciate all your love and support during this difficult time.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to the World Wildlife Federation.

Service planning is in progress.

    I am very sorry for your loss.

  5. Such a sad loss. Thoughts and prayers with the Stenoien family. I had the pleasure working with Tom most of my career at Stratasys. Always great to work with and enjoyed talking with him in non work related things. I remember the first few years playing him one on one in basketball. Even though he was older he was tough to guard. Glad I was able to see him last winter for a round of golf. He will be missed.

  6. To all of the Stenoien family and friends, I am so very sorry for this tragic loss. He was a wonderful man and a genuine friend. I had the privilege of working 16 years alongside him at Stratasys and learned a lot from him. Outside of Stratasys work, Tom and I shared a “side job” together working at Vikings games for several years. So many great memories with Tom. My prayers of peace and healing go out to the Stenoien family.

  7. To Mary Jo and all the Stenoien family my deepest condolences. I met Tom and Mary Jo about 5 years ago and so glad I did, Tom was one of the nicest and most genuine people I’ve ever met. The world is a sadder place without him.

  8. Mary Jo and Family,

    We were shocked by Tom’s and Judge’s untimely death. We feel privileged to have known Tom. Tom’s obituary captures his essence completely. Paul enjoyed playing golf and having a beer afterwards with Tom. Our card games were always fun, and Tom was a fantastic card player. We enjoyed having you as neighbors and Tom will be missed. Most importantly Tom was a good man! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
