Thomas Krohn Obituary

   THOMAS DEAN KROHN, age 69, of Worthington, MN passed away Friday, September 15, 2023, at the Country View Manor Nursing Home in Sibley, IA. He was born on December 29, 1953, in Worthington, MN to Duane and Nadine (Gerber) Krohn. He graduated from Worthington High School in 1972; and later from Alexandria Vo-Tech in Farm Equipment Mechanics.

   Tom married Jane Brunner on December 27, 1980, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Worthington. The couple were blessed with two sons Benjamin and Nicholas, both of whom Tom was very proud of. Tom farmed south of Worthington near Lake Ocheda, first with his father Duane, and then his son Ben. Farming was Tom’s one true passion.

Tom served on the Nobles County Park Board, the Bigelow Township Board, the Saddle Back Raceway Board, and was a member of Nobles County Pheasants Forever and the Worthington Elks. Tom loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.  He also enjoyed fishing, dirt track racing, snowmobiling, playing cards, and spending time with his many good friends. Tom’s favorite hour of the day was Happy Hour!
