Willis Tomsen - June 04, 2018


Willis “Tiny” Tomsen, 86, of Tulsa died of acute heart failure Monday, June 4, 2018; he was 86.
He died surrounded by family and friends. “Tiny” will be greatly missed by many.
A retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, civil engineer, outdoorsman, builder and supporter of wildlife art, Tiny was born to Nels and Luella Tomsen (second-generation Danish immigrants) in the middle of a blizzard in January 1932. Growing up on the family farm near Minden, he acquired the nickname “Tiny” as his Minden HS coach spied the over 6’2” freshman coming down the hall. At MHS he excelled at sports and academics, entering Nebraska Wesleyan University in 1949.
