Ray Thomas McCord, a beloved son, father, grandfather, friend and so much more was born on March 21, 1954. Tommy was a proud resident of Lewisburg, Tenn., where he passed away on March 25, 2024. Tommy’s love for God, family, and the great outdoors defined his essence. He found solace in fishing, cherished time with his grandchildren, and in his later years, took joy in observing wildlife from his kitchen window, captivated by nature’s beauty.

Tommy dedicated much of his life to the noble profession of truck driving, serving as a dump truck driver for many places. His commitment to his work reflected his strong work ethic and perseverance in all aspects of his life.
