Patrick M. Thunstrom, age 69, passed away at home on September 7, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer. The son of William and Jean Thunstrom, he was raised in St.Paul, MN. In the 8th grade, his best friend, Mike Schneider moved to Finlayson, MN. Pat spent his summer vacations up north with his Schneider family. Pat and Melinda Veith were married in 1991 and blessed with a daughter, Kelly. Pat loved the outdoors: boating, fishing (even tho he didn’t eat the fish, he loved catching them), camping and being in the woods. Most of all Pat loved to tinker, making whatever he needed. His latest project was a watering barrel, attached to the lawnmower, connected to the mower battery to make watering all the flowers and his favorite giant sunflowers much easier during the dry summer. Pat is survived by his wife, Melinda, daughter Kelly and best friends, Mike and Melissa Schneider. Preceded in death by his parents, mother and father in law and younger brother Paul. In honoring Pat’s wishes, there will be no funeral. Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services.
