He attended pharmacy school at St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Tom and Renee married in 1991, and raised three beloved children: Hanna, Daniel and Paul. Tom was a pharmacist at Walgreens and an employee for over 45 years. From stocking shelves as a teenager, to helping open stores as a pharmacy manager. He was a leader, mentor, and friend to many. Tom loved hunting and fishing. He never missed a deer season. He enjoyed float trips with friends and just kicking back on the porch of his hunting cabin and taking in some of the Ozark beauty. He could always be found playing classic rock, with the volume all the way up. He enjoyed good music, good movies, good food, and good times with his family. Tom was a faithful member of the church and a baptized child of God. Tom is survived by his children Hanna and Daniel, his brother David Holmgren, and his sister Judith Kopp. He is preceded in death by his parents Gordon and Eleanor Holmgren, his wife Renee, and his son Paul. There will be a joint celebration of life & love for Tom and Renee in the coming weeks, although a date has not been set yet.

Tom was one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. Although I didn't know him real well, I have never heard anyone who had known him well for years, ever say a bad word about him. He was a down to earth sort of guy. He made everyone he met down at the Niangua River community, feel as if he had known you forever. He would do anything for anyone, even when his health and heart were broken. May God give strength and comfort to the family as this has truly been a year of sorrow for you all. Priscilla Tolman
