Love Was in His Nature

Thomas "Thom" Henry Tyson peacefully passed away at home from Alzheimer's at the age of 81 on Saturday, April 20, 2024, surrounded by his loving family in Jackson, TN. He leaves behind several cherished friends and family members including Whitney Tyson, Regina Herbert, Errica Tyson, Sheva Tyson, Ercillia Tyson, Devontea Tyson, Jahrielle Tyson, AubrielleTyson, Thomas M. Tyson, and many others.

Thomas H. Tyson was born in Madison County on March 20, 1943, by midwife to parents Emma McIntee and George "Buddy" Tyson and older brother Sherman Tyson, who each preceded him in death. Thom's accomplishments include graduating and receiving his diploma from West High School in 1963, becoming a deacon at Bethlehem No.1 Baptist Church on September 12, 1992, working as a sharecropper, sought employment at the Armira Tannery, the Mercer Co-Op, and the Madison County Highway Dept for a total of 49 long years of service before retiring in 2015 at the age of 72. He thoroughly enjoyed being outdoors and in nature where he could be found playing baseball, hunting, fishing, gardening, tending to his animals, both domestic and farm, working in his shed, and tinkering with automobiles, but above all else, he enjoyed being among his family and friends the most.

Thom will forever be remembered as one of the most hard-working, humorous, fun-loving, upright, outspoken, generous, and friendliest people anyone could ever know. Being around him always felt warm and welcoming, like a solid hug or pat on the back that you didn't know you needed until received. No matter how you felt when you arrived on his doorstep, you would always leave with a laugh, a smile, a story in mind, and a full belly while smelling of hickory smoke. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him, and his memory will live on in the hearts of his loved ones forever.

He lived a great life.

You can to the family or in memory of Thomas Tyson.
