Tommy was a man who believed in hard work and putting his family above all else, which he learned at a very young age living on the family farm. Tommy was one of eight sons to Ben and Ruth, and as such was taught how to work the land almost as soon as he could walk, and he carried that tradition on helping to take care of his four younger brothers and teaching them what he had learned. At the age of 20 Tommy married the love of his life Guyerene Vaughn on October 5, 1957. They spent many wonderful years together raising their 2 children until her passing in 1995. In his spare time Tommy enjoyed fishing, hunting, going to the Copeland Family reunions, and spending time with the joy of his life his grandson Timothy. Tommy leaves behind a strong legacy for hard-work and the love of family which will live on for generations to come.
