"Tom" Leonard Thomas Maitland

Tommy - Mutt Mutt - Mini Brute

Born June 23, 1950 to William "Leonard" Maitland and Maxine (Lawson) Maitland in Kellogg, Idaho.  Went to be with the Lord Feb. 10, 2020 at Schneidmiller House in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho.

Graduated Kootenai High School 1968.  Attended North Idaho College for business. Worked for Union Pacific Railroad.  Was in the Army Reserves 1971-1977.  Tom worked in the woods, sawing, and his most loved job was hooking logs.  Tom was very well known for his ability to hook logs.  Tom had many nicknames "Mutt Mutt"," Mini Brute", and occasionally the "Little White Goat."  Tommy trained several  men to hook logs.  No matter who he was working for or with he loved his working family, in his heart they were all his brothers and at least one occasion his sister.

He was an avid outdoorsman, his hobbies were hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, just spending time with nature.

The dearest to his heart were his family and his life-long friends, and his brothers and sisters in faith.  Those that knew him know it was always a pleasure to have known him.  His greatest love of all was the Lord, our God.

On May 31, 1986 Tom became one with his soulmate Kriste Jo (Gunderson) Maitland  at Indian Springs Church.  They lived their adventurous life together at Willow Creek Road, Medimont, Idaho.

He is survived by his wife, Kriste Jo, at their home.  His children Cari Ann Bunch, Athol; Mike (Nancy) Maitland, Willow Creek; Mandi (Larry) Fugate, Rathdrum;  7 grandchildren that he dearly adored; Alex, Nic, Madison Amelia, Casi Jo, Kyler, Gage, Tayva.  1 great-granddaughter Ember May.  His sisters Merna (Jim), Cherry, Post Falls; Linda (Bob) Smith, Elk River; Donna (Joe) Layton, Evans Creek; brother Fred Maitland (Dawn Weidmer) all the Medimonsters!

He was preceded in death by his parents.
