William Thomas Quinn, Junior passed away on Monday April 2 at Chi St. Luke’s Health, The Woodlands Hospital. He was 85. Tom was born February 15, 1933 in Texarkana, Texas, and graduated from Victoria High School in 1951 and attended Baylor University. He married Lois Anderson on July 1,1955 and began serving his country in the United States Army shortly thereafter. Tom’s pride and joy was his family. His friends knew him as Tom, but his five children, 10 grandchildren and two great grandchildren fondly called him Daddy Tom. For 46 years, he was a fixture at First Baptist Church Conroe as a faithful member, a deacon and chairman of the deacons, a Sunday school teacher, director, and most recently, an assistant in the ESL program. Tom’s favorite day of the week was Sunday. The time he spent at his church fueled his unstoppable energy to spread the word of Christ, through his actions and his words. Tom was a proud Kiwanian for more than 25 years where he was named Kiwanian of the Year as well as served as the club president. He loved chairing the Special Olympics Committee, and was first to arrive and last to leave the event every year. His passion for young people was shown by the many loving hours he invested in The Woodlands Kiwanis Club Scholarship fund. He wanted to open doors and provide eager young students an opportunity to further their education. Tom’s Celebration of Life service will be held on his favorite day of the week, Sunday April 8 at 3 p.m. at First Baptist Church located at 600 North Main St, Conroe, Texas, 77301. There will be a reception in Herrington Hall at FBC Conroe immediately following the service. He was preceded in death by his parents, William Thomas Quinn, Sr. and Annie Tucker Quinn; his sister, Marjorie Green and brother-in-law Leo Green; and his son Stephen Anderson Quinn. Staying behind to cherish his memory are his wife of 62 years, Lois Quinn; three daughters, his son and their spouses; Brenda and Dwaine Wyman, Kay and Don Trammell, Lisa and Russ Roberts, and Greg and Carrie Quinn. His grandchildren and great grandchildren include, Bryan Anderson, Brittany Wyman and son Gage; Ryan Trammell, wife Elsa and son Rudder; Adrienne Congdon and husband Michael; Karson, Korey, Mason and Lyndsey Roberts; and Jake and Dalton Quinn.

Quinn Family-
Almost all of my own kid’s childhood memories have Daddy Tom in them. They considered him and Mama Lois as extra grandparents because they cheered just as loud for Big D at Little League games, flag football, choir concerts, Christmas plays and everything in between as they did for their own. He was an example of steadfast love for my family and everyone he encountered and his place will always be held dear in our hearts. We love y’all so much- and we are praying for strength as you figure out how to do life in this new landscape, and know we will always be there for whatever you need, whenever you need it. And LG says to hug Mama Lois for her and make it a great big one!

Daddy Tom was like a second father to me growing up because Kay and I were best friends. Tom had the kindest eyes and warmest smile (really sometimes a grin) and made me feel like I was part of his family. The love of God just poured out of him and I feel blessed to have known him. We could say, ‘All who knew him loved him’ and it would not be a lie. Love to all the Quinn family. I wish I could be there tomorrow celebrating Daddy Tom’s life.

I had the honor of working with Tom for a few years back in the 1990's. He was the kindest man I ever worked with. His love of family and faith was evident each and everyday. My father used to say, you can tell how a person lives his life by how he greets people. Tom always greeted me with a smile no matter what was going on at the office. He lived his life to the fullest and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his family and friends.

The first time I met Daddy Tom was in my early 20s at Brittany Wymans house. He immediately gave me a hug and a huge loving smile, which I thought was so amazing because I was, at the time, just a stranger to him. But he never once made me feel like that. He welcomed me into his family and heart automatically. And everytime thereafter when I would visit Brittanys house, and Mama Lois and Daddy Tom would stop by, there he'd be, greeting me with that big kind smile, genuinely wanting to know how I've been. I will forever consider myself blessed for getting the chance to get to know him. Thank you so much for bringing so much light, love and joy to my best friend and her whole family for so long and even for years to come, as we all will continue to celebrate your life and memory

The Waldrup family wants the Quinn Family to know that we are thinking of you and praying for you during this time of change. My siblings and I have many, many great memories of times with Tom and your family. They range from trips to a cabin on the Buffalo River in Arkansas to the World's Fair in San Antonio (with many trips in between) . Hearing Tom and Lois play 42 with Ann and Arlen and talk, eat and laugh. Tom was a great man and we have many fond memories of him. We have the assurance of seeing him again so remember the great times from the past and look forward to the future. We love you.
