Thomas Logan Eakon

Dec. 15, 1998 – Nov. 7, 2022

Thomas Logan Eakon was born on December 15, 1998, in Anchorage, Alaska to Bruce Eakon Sr. and Karen Bradley. He passed away unexpectedly on November 7, 2022. Thomas was named after his dads’ best friend and classmate, Tom Trainor. Thomas was raised in Unalakleet, Alaska surrounded by plenty of family and friends. 

Thomas attended Unalakleet Schools from ECE until his sophomore year. During summer break, after his sophomore year, he was employed as a seafood processor with NSEDC for two consistent seasons.

He chose to finish his remaining years of high school at Sherman Indian High School in Riverside, California, graduating on May 11, 2017. After he graduated, he decided to move to Albuquerque, New Mexico with his best friend, Orry Morris, and his family. He immediately found work as a houseman at the Wyndham Hotel. Eventually, Thomas moved into his first studio apartment with his girlfriend, Lacresha Harvey (Dizzy). He also worked at Chevron and Firehouse Subs. Thomas returned to Unalakleet to work during the summer, eventually moving back home where he worked at the Igloo, and at the school as a full-time cook. 

He enjoyed spending his free time out in the country subsisting, camping, swimming, building blinds and forts. He also enjoyed expressing himself through music, playing video games, and he had a vivid imagination; always interested in learning more about the world and had his own various theories. Thomas was very fond of telling funny stories and jokes, always making sure everyone had a smile on their face when he left the room. Thomas was very artistic, generous, kindhearted, honest and always gave a helping hand to those in need, no questions asked, never expecting anything in return.

He is survived by his father Bruce Sr.; mother Karen and siblings Amber, Annabelle, Kyle, Rebecca, Jason, Tatiana, Bruce Jr., and Russell; his grandparents Ben (Peachy) and Leila Eakon; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces. 

He is preceded in death by his grandparents Ransom and Annabel Bradley Sr.; uncles Benjamin Eakon, Gary and Allen Bradley; great uncle and aunt John and Anita Grant.

Peace to his memory.
