Thomas Edward Dutton tranquilly departed this life on Tuesday, January 10, 2023. He was sixty-two years old.

Thomas grew up in a family in which he was one of six children. He spent many dazzlingly sunny mornings and brilliantly bracing evenings hunting and fishing with various members of his immediate family members and close friends. As Thomas grew into manhood, he continued to have an immense passion for the great outdoors. He continued his appreciation for outdoors sports and entertainment throughout his adulthood.

He adored his children and understood the value and urgency of time with his children only as a parent who had lost a child could empathize. His daughter Kristy Poole preceded him in death. Thomas’ brothers Billy Dutton and Steve Dutton and parents also preceded him in death.

Thomas and the love of his life Sylvia each considered themselves extremely fortunate for discovering each other and spent thirty-six marvelously amazing years together. In addition to Sylvia, Thomas is also survived by his son Johnny Poole, his daughters Margaret Callan and Teresa Wood, his brother Keith Dutton, and his sisters Hazel Helton and Donna Barker.

Thomas will be ceaselessly missed by all who knew and loved him.

The family will hold a visitation at Good Shepherd Funeral Home Chapel on Saturday, January 14, 2023, from 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM, with a funeral service at 12:00 PM following internment at Lindale Cemetery. Rev Jackie Dutton will be officiating and Eulogy by Johnny Poole.

Parnick Jennings Sr. – Good Shepherd Funeral Home has charge of the arrangements.
