Thomas P. McLaughlin
November 29, 1951- December 10, 2022
Thomas P. McLaughlin, age 71, of Hibbing passed away peacefully at his
home on Saturday, December 10, 2022. Tom was born on November 29,
1951 to Paul and Mary Jane McLaughlin in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Tom
graduated from Richfield High School, Class of 1971. Soon after
graduation, Tom was drafted into the Army to serve his country in the
Vietnam War where he earned the rank of Sergeant. He went on to obtain
his bachelor’s degree from UW-Stout and graduated Cum Laude. Tom
married Sue in 1990 and settled in Hibbing where they raised their
children. Tom was a member of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church.
Tom worked at Hibbing Taconite for 32 years before he retired.
Tom loved to fish, particularly for walleye, and later shared his passion with
others through the “Tommy Mac” Fishing Guide Service. In addition to
fishing, Tom had a passion for photographing wildlife and nature. He
always had his camera ready to capture incredible images of eagles,
sunrises, or loons on the lake.
Tom loved his family dearly and demonstrated this through his actions. He
always ensured they had what they needed, even throughout his final
days.
He is survived by his wife, Susan McLaughlin of Hibbing; children, Michael
McLaughlin of Duluth, MN; Matthew McLaughlin of Saco, ME; Molly
(Andrew) Roberts of Grand Forks, ND; two grandchildren, Liliana and
Oliver McLaughlin; siblings, Patrice (Jerry) Groessel of Janesville, WI;
Martin (Dianne) McLaughlin of Side Lake, MN; Michael “Mick” (Patti)
McLaughlin of Eau Claire, WI; Joseph McLaughlin of Virginia, MN; as well
as numerous well-loved nephews and nieces (and a handful of grand-
pups.)
Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Mary Jane; his sister,
Maureen; and grandson, Elijah.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 12 noon on Wednesday, December
21, 2022, at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Hibbing. Visitation will
be held one hour prior to the service at church. Interment will be held at
Maple Hill Cemetery in Hibbing. Mid-Range Honor Guard will accord

The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to Ann, Karly, and
