Saturday, July 17, 2010, at the Pembina County Memorial Hospital in
Cavalier, North Dakota, at the age of 55. Tom was born in Drayton,
North Dakota, on December 15, 1954 to Ross and Cecelia (Marciniak)
Landowski. The family lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota and
Moorhead, Minnesota, where Tom graduated from high school in 1973.
Tom later moved back to Drayton where he farmed with his father. He
went on to form his successful gaming business, Landowski Music and
Games. His business spans large areas throughout North Dakota and
Minnesota, and it is through his business that Tom met many of his
closest friends and his wife, Taryn (Spilde), formerly of Karlstad,
Minnesota. Tom and Taryn were married on January 22, 1997, in Las
Vegas, Nevada. Together they raised three daughters, Becka, Kayla and
Tom enjoyed fishing at Devils Lake, riding his Harley Davidson, a
good card game, and spending time with his family and many friends.
For the past three and a half years, Tom was best buddies with his
grandson, Evan Thomas.
