May 21, 2021, 57, La Grange –
Thomas “Tom-Tom” Henry Suggs was released from the bondage of this life on May 21, 2021. Tom was born in Norfolk, Virginia to Vernon Ray Suggs and Lossie Marie Foyles Whaley on November 22, 1963. He was preceded in death by his son, Thomas Henry Suggs, Jr. and his step-mother, Nancy.
Tom lived for the moments he could spend outdoors. From riding four-wheelers with his son to tinkering on cars, if he could enjoy the fresh air he was content. Tom was an avid NASCAR follower and wouldn’t miss the race if number 3 was behind the wheel. He was quite possible Dale Earnhardt’s biggest fan.
A service to honor and remember Tom’s life will be held Sunday, May 23, 2021, at 3 p.m. in the chapel of Rouse Funeral Home. His family will receive friends for a time of visitation from 2-2:45 p.m. Interment will be held privately.
Tom is survived by his caretaker and best friend, his mama, Lossie Foyles Whaley; his father, Vernon Ray Suggs; his daughter, Crystal Lynn White and husband, Kevin; four grandchildren, Shane, Nathan, Jada, and Marissa Baron; his brother, Chris Whaley and wife, Cindy; and his sister, Tina Howard and husband, William.
Tom’s family would like to extend their most sincere gratitude to Bayada Home Health, Laura, Hannah, Nancy, and Jennifer. Your care of Tom and friendship with Marie has meant more than you’ll ever know.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Tom’s memory may be made to the Tom Suggs Memorial Fund in the care of Rouse Funeral Home, 108 N. Caswell Street, La Grange, NC 28551. Online condolences may be expressed at www.rousefh.com. Arrangements are entrusted to Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange.
