Thomas Juntunen died on Wednesday, August 26 of natural causes. Thomas was born in Detroit, MI but called Hopkins, MN his childhood home. He met friends in high school that carried him into adulthood and beyond – including gaming friends, friends from the local science fiction fandom community, and eventually competitive bridge. He became a bridge lifemaster - an accomplishment, like many, that he could never quite acknowledge as the big deal that it was. He received a BS from Metro State University and a Masters in Geographic Information Systems from the University of Minnesota. He married Anna Bliss in 2001, Anna and Tom each having found a person who loved and accepted them for all they were and could be. His proudest accomplishment, though, the part of his life most dear, was his daughter. From the time he first held her tiny hand to cheering her on at circus to watching her take the car keys for the first time this summer to go hang out with friends – she was his greatest treasure. He will be remembered as a weather geek, a sharer of interesting tidbits that you may just need to know, a garden putterer, and a kind hearted soul. He was preceded in death by his parents, W. Wallace Juntunen and Janet Juntunen, and is survived by his wife, Anna Bliss, his daughter Solveig Juntunen, Anna’s family (Carolyn, Pete, Joan, Jared, Emily, and Lauren), and many friends. There will be a private burial and memorial gathering at a later time. Memorials to the ACLU, the Sheridan Story, or donor’s choice.

Dear Anna & Solveig,
Many people feel The loss of Tom and are grieving. Tom made the world a better place. My Mom, Joy Peters, saw Tom at a bridge tournament some years ago. Mom said Tom was the nice gentleman she remembered from our teen-age years at Eisenhower High School. I am sorry for your loss. We are better people having known Tom.
