Thomas Raymond Danger, of Braham, MN passed away on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, MN. He was 69 years old.

Thomas was born on August 7, 1949 in Braham, Minnesota to parents Glen and Elaine (Pomorski) Danger. He grew up in Braham and attended Braham High School, graduating in 1967. He went on to the University of Minnesota graduating with a degree in forestry. On September 30, 1972, Tom was united in marriage to Sandra Annette Nelson at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rush City. Tom started and ended his career with the Department of Natural Resources. He worked at numerous lakes, state forests, and parks around Minnesota but spent his final years at the Parks Department main office in a management roll.

Tom loved the outdoors. During the summer months he loved the fishing and camping trips in northern Minnesota with his wife Sandra and the fishing trip to Canada with his friends. Tom enjoyed hunting, ice fishing, and just puttering around the woods. He and Sandra loved to watch the birds that visited their feeders and they would keep logs of all the different types of birds and when they came and went. On December 12, 2014, Sandra passed away but Tom was blessed to have close friendship with his sister and brother to help him through the hard years. He will be dearly missed.

Tom is preceded in death by his father Glen and wife Sandra.

He is survived by his mother Elaine Occhino; sister Anita (Gus) Gislason; brother Kevin (Tami) Danger; many nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

    Tim was my first baby sitting job, he was always a gentleman when seeing him at various doing around Braham. Sincere Sympathy to Elaine, Anita and Kevin and families.

  5. Condolences from The Diedrich Family.. Tom happened to be icefishing when my Dad Bob, fell thru the ice. Tom was able to reach him and get him out. He sure did love fishing!. Blessings 💗

  6. Our Sympathies & Prayers to the families of Tom Danger. Tom worked for us at St.Croix State Park & later at St.Paul DNR Parks & Recreation.

  7. My sympathies to you at the passing of Tom. He was a (perceived) cranky ‘old’ guy who was really a big teddy bear. I always enjoyed working with him at the DNR info booth at the State Fair as well as daily interactions on the third floor in Central Office. I’ve missed his humor and twinkling eyes since he retired.

  8. Tom was may boss at the DNR in the late ’80s. Great guy who should be given a large amount of credit for the wonderful State Trail System that we have in Minnesota. He took the long view.

  9. Many years ago, I was assigned to appraisal a long stretch of the MN/Wisconsin Boundary Trail. When Tom worked in DNR-Traisls, he took me out on a land inspection. I spent several hours on the back of a snowmobile with Tom. What a fun day!

  10. Condolences to Tom’s family and friends from his many years at the DNR, a place you never really leave behind. Yes a truly unique guy. Rest in Peace, Tom!

  11. I also worked with Tom at Trails and Waterways for a number of years and am shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. He was one of a kind. I agree with Greg Murray that he deserves a lot of credit for the wonderful trail system in Minnesota. My sympathy to his family and may he rest in peace.

  12. Sorry I couldn’t make visitation or funeral. My deepest sympathy to Sandy & rest of family. Tom use to stop in at Perkins in North Branch & we would visit. Always so pleasant.
