The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, family and friends consider a memorial gift in the name Thomas Heard Few to Emmanuel's Hammer, a non-profit organization that rebuilds homes for families who have faced a disaster or other critical situation. https://ehammer1.org
Thomas was an Eagle Scout, a graduate of Boys State, and a feisty competitor in all sports. Those who were lucky enough to know Thomas remember a friend who loved people at the deepest level. Thomas was constantly smiling, and never failed to make everyone around him feel at home—loved and heard. And Thomas not only loved his friends and family, but he loved doing his favorite things with them. From hunting and fishing, to building tables and his infamous wooden "boat," to attending football games at Death Valley in Clemson and so many other activities, the joy of simply being with Thomas is a blessing we will never forget. The family is honored that dozens of the young men who shared these experiences with Thomas, MacRae, and Evans over so many years will serve as honorary pallbearers at the memorial service. The spirit of "T-Few" will live with us forever.
