Thomas (Tom) Robert Gann, Jr, 87, of Douglasville, GA passed away peacefully on September 14, 2022. Tom was predeceased by his loving and eternally devoted wife of 52 years, Betty Still Gann. He is survived by his children, Donna Rhoden (Joe), Terri Daniell (Kevin), Tommy Gann III (Tammy), numerous grandchildren, a growing number of great grandchildren, and his special close companion of recent years, Joyce Norton.
Tom was born to Thomas Sr. and Helen Mott Gann. He was raised in the Grant Park area of Atlanta, GA and graduated from Roosevelt High School. Tom and Betty were active at Georgia Ave. Presbyterian Church in Atlanta prior to moving to Douglasville. They were dedicated Georgia Bulldog fans and season ticket holders. (GO DAWGS!) Tom leaves behind many lifelong friends at First Presbyterian Church of Douglasville, the US Postal Service (where he worked for 32 years ending as Postmaster at Villa Rica, GA), and the U.S. Army Reserves (retiring as a Master Sergeant after 40 years of service). Tom was also active for many years as a high school football referee and baseball umpire. He leaves behind many new friends from Aspen Village and Manor Lake Assisted Living where he was active and happy until the end.
The family will receive friends at the First Presbyterian Church in Douglasville, Georgia on Monday, September 19, 2022 from 12:30 until 2:00 p.m. The service will follow at 2:30 p.m. with Rev. Dr. James Harper officiating.
