Tom Amos, 87, of Timpson, Texas went to be with the Lord Sunday, July 11, 2021, at home surrounded by his loving and caring family.
Tom was born in Houston, Texas on July 27, 1933, to John Virgil and Faye Amos. He graduated from high school in Grayville, Illinois in 1952, soon after joined the U.S. Air Force.
On June 10, 1954, Tom married Betty Campbell, the love of his life. They just celebrated 67 wonderful years of marriage. From this marriage they were blessed with four sons, Stanley, Stephen, Tim, and Terry.
After completing his service with the Air Force, Tom obtained a job with McDonald Aircraft in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1958, Tom and Betty moved to Texas, after moving around for various jobs, they settled in Timpson in 1968. There they opened and operated “Tom’s Clothing” for 14 years. Tom was then employed at the local U.S. Post Office until his retirement.
Tom and Betty were long time devoted, and active members of Woodland Christian Church. After retirement, they pursued the love and life of their dreams, serving the Lord through World Mission Builders. They traveled the United States and Africa, Philippines and Mexico building churches and homes for the less fortunate and making memories and lifetime friends.
Church and family were equally important to Tom and Betty. Tom often said, “I’m Blessed.” His greatest joys were spending time with family whether it was a celebration, holiday or even a function involving the grandchildren or great-grandchildren. The last couple of years, he thoroughly enjoyed camping with his kids.
Tom was considered Timpson Bears and Lady Bears #1 Fan. If it were baseball, softball, volleyball, basketball, track or football, no matter what, he was there. He truly loved his Bears. He was especially proud of the THS Collegiate Center. He watched the center being built from beginning to end and attended the day of dedication. He enjoyed attending games in the gym but was proud of the Collegiate Center giving the students opportunities they never dreamed of.
He is survived by his loving wife, Betty Campbell Amos and sons, Stanley and wife Lowana, Stephen and wife Debi, Tim and wife Debby, Terry and wife Kim all of Timpson, Grandchildren; Shaun and Cheryl Milford, Megan and Joshua Adams, Kristan and Mark Solomon, Kelli and Daniel Holloway, Kaleb and Candace Amos, Nicole and Casey Williams, Damein and Danni Amos, Melissa and Nash Chandler, Hunter Amos, and Chandler Amos and 26 precious great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents, John Virgil and Faye Amos, brothers, John Amos, Don Amos, and sister-in-law Elaine Amos.
The family would like to thank everyone for the prayers, visits, phone calls and support during this difficult time. We would especially like to thank Ebony Wallace and the HeartWay Hospice ladies for their loving and dedicated care for Tom.
