In memory of
Thomas Paul "Tom" LANGLOIS Sr.
Of St. Paul, MN was called home by the Lord on January 10, 2021. He was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on July 13, 1930 the son of Louis and Clemence Langlois. He was preceded in death by his brother and sisters Helen Miller, Agnes Clymer, Andrew Langlois and Audrey Connolly. He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Elizabeth Rose (Schoch) Langlois, seven children Ann Yekaldo (Fred), Aimee Holt, Steve Langlois (Michelle), Bob Langlois, Tom Langlois Jr, Paul Langlois (Meggie) and Jennifer Erler (Dennis). He is also survived by nineteen grandchildren and nine great grandchildren with his tenth great grandchild due in August, 2021. Tom graduated from Harding High School in 1949 and was a St. Paul boy through and through. He served his country as an Army infantryman in the Korean War. Tom retired from First National Bank of St. Paul after 25 years and was ordained in 1976 in the first class of Catholic deacons for the St. Paul/Minneapolis Archdiocese. He served as a deacon at St. Matthews Catholic Church in St. Paul, St. Joseph's Catholic Church in West St. Paul and St. Gregory's Catholic Church in North Branch, MN. As a deacon he fought for social justice and lived a life of sacrifice including moving his family of nine in 1972 to a townhouse in a new low-income housing development, Torre De San Miguel on the West Side of St. Paul, to serve the community. Tom was an amazing human being and lived a life filled with love, friends and family. He was the patriarch of the Langlois extended family and if anyone needed someone, they always knew they could count on Uncle Tom for help or guidance. Most importantly, he had a true, long lasting love affair with his wife and sweetheart Elizabeth. He loved his family first but also any Minnesota sports team, especially the Wild. He also loved eating pork chops, hot dogs and booya, playing cribbage, the Minnesota State Fair and heading up north to Lake Superior. Tom was the most positive person and would always find the good in every situation. He was a role model for his children, grandchildren and great-grand children and his legacy will live on forever through the incredible family he and Liz created. Donations preferred to Little Sisters of the Poor. A memorial service, for immediate family only, will be held on January 21st, 2021 at St. Joseph's Catholic Church of West St. Paul and will be live streamed. A large celebration of his life will be held this summer and the details will be published once they are finalized.
