Tommy Dean Lanoue came into this world wearing his angel wings on October 16th 2021.
Tommy was the son of Caleb and Veronika Lanoue of Hawley, MN. Although his stay was short, he was loved by many before his long-awaited arrival. From the moment we found out about Tommy, he has filled our lives with love and joy. We will miss our nightly routine of feeling his kicks, and his smile on the ultrasound pictures as he would try his best to hide from the camera. Some people might think of it as a life that was lost too soon, or that it was unfair of what happened to him. We do agree with you, but we are grateful for the moments of happiness he brought to our world. We were happy to be able to baptize him knowing that he is in the arms of Jesus and is watching over all of us from heaven today. We are grateful for the love of family and friends that are here to support us through this difficult time in our lives. His life here on earth may be over, but his job has just begun. He has a family to look over, and we pray that it be more than one.
He is survived by his parents; Grand Parents Rose Lanoue, Viktoriya and Ed Papa; Great grandparents Lawrence Harles, Maria Pribyshchuk, and JoAnne Papa; along with too many to count aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Preceded in death by grandparents Ronald Lanoue and Petro Pribyshchuk, Aunt Roberta Lanoue, Uncle Timothy Lanoue, and all of the unspoken lost hearts along the way.
A funeral service will be held Friday, October 29, 2021, at 2:00 P.M., with visitation for one hour before the service, at Wright Funeral Home in Hawley, MN. Burial will be at Ringsaker Cemetery near Pelican Rapids, MN.
