Early on a beautiful summer morning Thomas went to rest high on that
mountain. His days on earth were done and he is now at peace with the Lord.
Thomas was born on February 1, 1981 to Linda Card (Peacock) in Shelby, MS.
He departed this world on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 in Water Valley, MS.
Thomas was an avid hunter and fisherman. He was never happier than when
he fished at Guy Dale Shaw's pond. Whether hunting deer, ducks, or squirrels,
it didn't matter to him, he just liked being in the woods or on the lake. Thomas
especially looked forward to opening squirrel season at Howell's Hunting Camp
East of Eden.
Thomas loved to eat and he wasnt picky, his favorites being Mama's
fried pork chops and Meme's bbq chicken and cornbread dressing. Give him a
chocolate pie and it would be gone in no time.
Thomas earned his degree from NWCC in Tool and Dye and was working
at Valley Tool at the time of his death. He was a member of Jumpers Chapel
Congregational Methodist Church where his remains will be at rest.
Visitation is planned for Monday, September 28, 2020 in the Gardiner Room at Seven Oaks Funeral Home from 12:00 Noon until 2:00 PM. Services will follow at 2:00 PM in the Henry Chapel of Seven Oaks.
