On Friday, September 9, 2022 Thomas Henry “Tom” Allison passed away at his home in Gillette, WY of natural causes. He was 74 years old. Tom was born on September 22, 1947 to Jim and Nellie (Judd) Allison in Colville, Washington. He served as a medic in the U.S. Army in 1967-1969 serving three tours in Vietnam. Tom spent his life logging in Texas, Washington, Wyoming, Louisiana, Alaska, Oregon and the east coast. He even claimed to have logged in Arizona. But it’s a desert, you say? Of course, it was after he logged it. Tom spent some time in the oilfield around the Gillette area. On December 15, 1969, Tom married Neda Weible and to that union three sons were born, Timothy, Travis and Marcus. These boys were Tom’s pride and joy. Tom was extremely proud of all of their accomplishments.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Jim and Nellie Allison and his brother Steve Allison.
Tom is survived by his sons, Timothy (Carrie) Allison; Travis Allison and Marcus (Nicole) Allison; grandchildren, Fillie (Anthony) Gibson, Samantha Nickel, Brooke Allison, Jim Allison, Morgan Allison, Codey Miller, Maci Allison, and Westyn Allison, great-grandchildren, Cenya Gibson, Kadynce Gibson, Adam Gibson, Owen Gibson and Kashlyn Nickel and his partner of twenty years, Carol Hager; siblings, Glen Allison, Harry (Becky) Allison, Judy Armstrong, Janie Paparazzo, Helen Knight and Bob (Colleen) Allison and numerous nieces and nephews.
