Tommy Lewis Twomey

Tommy Lewis Twomey, 74, of Corsicana, Texas, passed away peacefully at Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth on Thursday, June 5, 2014.  Born in Duck River, Tennessee to Thomas H. Twomey and Ophelia Church Twomey, who both preceded him in death, he spent most of his life in Corsicana. He was a member of Westhill Church of Christ in Corsicana, where he rededicated his life to Christ in recent years.

Tommy enjoyed gardening and always had a fascination for cars and trucks. He especially loved sports cars and had many over the years that he treasured.  He would often fondly reminisce about them. Anyone who knew Tommy had heard about his favorite car, a Corvette he named “White lightening.” Another favorite was a pickup that he converted into a six-door limo. His passion even extended into his work life. Much of his career was spent as a truck driver. He was very proud of his trucks and was always finding ways to personalize them

Tommy was extremely proud of his children, “Chip” Tommy Lewis Twomey II and his wife Cindy, of San Antonio, and Tammy Twomey Saiter and her husband Dave of Arlington. He is also survived by his loving and supportive sister Sandra Brunson of Corsicana as well as his sister Carol Horvath also of Corsicana.  He is lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Jared and Jacob Twomey, Tucker and Terra Baugh, and Riley Saiter as well as numerous nieces and nephews along with their children.

The visitation will be held at Corley Funeral Home, 418 N 13th St, Corsicana, TX from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Sunday, June 8, 2014.

A graveside service at 11 a.m. Monday, June 9, 2014 will be held at Hamilton Beeman Cemetery with Mr. Sam Dilbeck officiating. Pallbearers are Jared Twomey, Jacob Twomey, Tucker Baugh, Brandon Brunson, Jeff Ivy, Terry Baugh and honorary pallbearer, Billy Don Demoss.
