At the age of 42, he graduated at the top of his class and was the president of his class as well. He worked for the Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Department for over 27 years first as a dispatcher, then Sheriff’s Deputy, and retired as a detective. Tommy was known throughout the community as a talented musician who sang and played the guitar. He played in church and at various community events. He was a lifelong cowboy and loved riding horses. Tommy’s love for the Lord was very evident in his life. He always put God first and was a member of LaCamp Church of God for 38 years. Tommy’s example as a Godly man will be remembered by everyone who knew him. Most of all, he was a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend to so many.
