Tommy is preceded in death by his dear ole dad, Jody Wade Cheatwood; grand-parents, Lovell and Elwyn Thomas; one aunt, Debra J. Thomas; one uncle, Wallace L. Cheatwood. Tommy loved the Lord. He would ask anyone if they were a Christian and going to Heaven. He loved everyone and had a smile that could melt your heart. He was a member of Antioch Baptist Church where he worked with the bed babies and toddlers for 20 years. He attended Wellborn High where he was in Bo Meadow's TMR class, he graduated in 1988. He loved singing for the Lord and sang with his parents. Tommy served with the Oxford Fire Dept. as an honorary member for 24 years with his dad, he was well taken care of by this group of men they loved him and he loved them. "It was an honor to have been his mother because he was a total joy!" When his health was good, he lead an active life camping, traveling, cross country, flying with his granddad, fishing, driving his boat or pontoon, and would go play golf with his dad. He was also on the Special Olympic Swim Team where he won a gold and two silver metals. Tommy was a walking talking miracle special gift from God. He knew more about the bible than a lot of preachers! In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to St. Jude Cancer Center for Children, which was his favorite charity. He would pray for these children and their parents everyday that they would draw strength from God! www.millerfuneralhomeoxford.com Miller Funeral Home & Crematory Oxford, AL (256) 831-4611 A Brown Service Authorized Funeral Home Chosen #1 funeral home by the readers of The Anniston Star for 6 consecutive years.
