Thomas Robert Moyer

November 17, 1945 ~ December 27, 2021 (age 76)


Thomas Robert Moyer, 76, of Aurora, lost his battle with cancer and congestive heart failure on Monday, Dec. 27, 2021 at Essentia Health St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth with his wife, Carole, by his side.

Tom was born in Sault Ste. Marie, MI on Nov. 17, 1945 to Laurence and Eleanor (Gray) Moyer. He graduated in 1963 from Aurora Hoyt Lakes High School. Right after graduation he joined the Navy, a family tradition, following brother, Bill, Paul “Buzz” and Jim, and his uncle, Pat Miller. Tom was an electronics technician while in the Navy which led to a lifetime career in communications and sales.

Tom was a member of the American Legion in Aurora. He loved to be busy and could fix just about anything. His shed was full of nuts, bolts, lumber, pipe and just about anything one might need to finish a project; much to the thankfulness of his lake neighbors and friends.

In 2006, he and Carole built their beloved cabin on Cabin Circle Whiteface. What wonderful days and night we had out there with friends.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents; stepdad, Bob Holter; and brothers, Bill and Jim.

Tom is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Carole; son, Jeff (Melissa) and their children, Rachel and Vincent; daughter, Janell (Brad) Berens; step-children, Chris (DeAnna) Boese and her son, Jacob, Greg (Jenny) Boese and their boys, Cody and Dean; sister, Melissa (John) Robertson; former wife, Joanne Moyer; faithful dog, Maggie; cat, Callie; and all of his good friends and neighbors on Cabin Circle Whiteface.

A Celebration of Tom’s Life will be held this summer at his beloved cabin on Whiteface.
