Tom Raymond Owen
March 9, 1957 - Feb. 2018
Tom Raymond Owen was born on March 9th, 1957: the 4th child of Tom and Alice Owen. He grew up in Tucson, Arizona and attended Sunnyside High. On March 23rd, 1984 he married the love of his life: Trina Policy. They built a life together in quiet Church Wells, Utah.
Tom was a skilled Jack of All Trades. He provided for his loved ones working for places like Easy Street, Kocjan Enterprises, and Page Steel. Working for Salt River Project, he got the training for a career as a Superintendent Millwright at Zachry Construction (San Antonio, Texas).
Tom was an avid outdoorsman who loved camping, barbecues, and beer. He was a loyal friend with a reputation of going out of his way to help someone in trouble. A generous neighbor with a strong sense of community. Above all, Tom Owen was a family man. His wife, daughters, sons, and grandchildren were his entire world; and he protected them fiercely.
His wild sense of humor, unceasing charity, and the safety he instilled will be sorely missed by many. May we all look to the examples he set.
Tom is survived by his wife: Trina Owen. His children: Candice Redshirt (Ryan), James Mihalka, Tiffanie Owen, Natalie Owen (Kyle Hanes), and Desiree Owen (Kyle Threadgill). His grandchildren: Christy, Cammie, Colby, Blake, Marley, and Amara. Siblings: Carmen Borden (William), Mary Osborn, Bobbie Delabarcena, and Lawrence Owen (Linda). His parents: Tom Owen and Alice Owen. A multitude of nieces, nephews, and cousins; as well as the many, many people he went out of his way to positively affect.
He was preceded in death by Raymond Owen, Maudiebell Owen, and Larry Tracey.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Tom at 1:00pm on Saturday, February 24th, 2018 at Lone Rock Beach, Lake Powell, Utah. In lieu of flowers, please donate to his family's GoFundMe to help with medical expenses: https://www.gofundme.com/the-best-dad-in-the-world-tom-owen
