Payne, Thomas 62 years young, died of kidney cancer at his St. Louis Park home on October 22, 2022. Tom was a friend to many but his BFFs were brother Steve and Barry the cat. Meow. We will miss his mostly accurate Vikings and Twins predictions and extensive soccer expertise. We already miss his sense of humor, the names he made up for himself like 'Dr. Tom without a license' and his captivating gift of gab. His Christian faith was unwavering and central to who he was. He was our bright spot and will be greatly missed. Love you Talkin' Tommy! John, Maureen, Daniel and Steve. Celebration of Life planned for Spring 2023
