Thomas Williamson

Thomas Williamson, 56, Minot, died Saturday, February 24, 2024 at Presbyterian St. Luke’s Hospital in Denver, CO, surrounded by his loving family.

Thomas Wayne was born December 23, 1967 in Silver Bay, MN, the son of David Duane and Martha Fae (Wallace) Williamson. While his father served in the U.S. Army, the family was stationed at numerous bases throughout the United States and in Germany. His father retired as a Lieutenant Colonel at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs where Thomas graduated from Air Academy High School in 1986. During high school he lettered in football, baseball and basketball and was voted “most athletic”.

Thomas continued his education at the University of Colorado in Boulder and University of Denver until he decided to join the workforce. He was employed as a stockbroker for Dean Witter until realizing his interest and passion for politics and became the state chairman for Patrick Buchanan’s presidential campaign. He was a delegate at the Republican Convention in 1992 and then a political consultant, all while living in Denver. He moved to Colorado Springs and was employed at MCI in telecommunications and then joined his brother, Chris, in Las Vegas where he worked as a real estate appraiser for a year. He decided to get back into politics and moved to Sartell, MN where he ran the call center for the Mitt Romney campaign.  

Tom met the love of his life, Julia Lewis at a Sky Sox game in August 1995. They were united in marriage on March 23, 1996 in Colorado Springs. This union was blessed with four children: Hallie, Hunter, Reagan, who was named after his favorite president, and Mollie.

In 2009 they moved to Minot, ND where Tom and Julia started Chippewa Resources, Inc. They attended Our Redeemers Church where they found spiritual support and friendships.

Tom enjoyed playing tennis and golf, collecting baseball memorabilia and listening to Elvis and John Denver. He was a huge Minnesota Vikings and Colorado Rockies fan and often shared his love of attending games with family and friends. Spending time at their home in Denver was always enjoyable, especially when he was able to see his favorite granddaughter.

Tom will be missed for his witty, dry sense of humor and his loving personality.
