Thomas was a retired employee from the State of TN. He worked in maintenance department of Nat T. Winston Developmental Center. “Wolf” as he was affectionately called by so many was an amazing car-penter. He had a style of work that was truly his own unique spin on everything that he made. If it could be fixed (rigged up), Thomas (Wolf) could and would do just that. Another love of his was the joy of cooking, especially grilling on those special one of a kind grills he made.

Some of the happiest times that Thomas had in his last few years were the times when he was around his grand and great grandchildren. He had very special nicknames he would call them. He leaves eight grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren. Also left to share his memories are two sisters; Earlene Watkins, Pauline Dotson: two brothers; James (Margie) McClellan, and Lonnie (Jackie) McClellan, a special friend Gussie McNeal all of Bolivar, TN. and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
