Tammy, Larry, Gary, Leslie. I so hated to hear of Tommy’s passing . I have so many memories of Tommy from when I was a kid and as an adult . He never met a stranger and if you saw him in town you best be ready to sit and talk for a while because he was quite the talker . My dad always enjoyed him coming and visiting with him he was one of the few that came by and visited . My thoughts and prayers go out to y’all RIP Tommy

My sincere condolences to Tommy's Family and friends. I knew Tommy when we were young kids. My family rented a house from his dad Leonard in the early 50's, and was neighbors with them. There were six children in my family at that time, and on many summer days we would all play with Tommy, Lyndell Briny, and Phillip Burnett. Good memories of those times !
