Tommy Lanier Burton, Sr. of Tallassee, AL went to be with The Lord on Saturday, May 27, 2023 at the age of 67. He was born March 18, 1956 and was raised in Tallassee, AL where he spent his entire life.
During his 67 years, Tommy worked mostly in Construction-Excavation, where he was an excellent operator and very loyal employee. Tommy's favorite hobbies included hunting, fishing, football, baseball and racing. These all took a backseat when his grandchildren were born.
Tommy was preceded in death by his father, John and brother, Johnny. He is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Jackie; mother, Wayne; three sons, Tommy Jr. (Melody), Jason (Jennifer) and Stephen (Aniston); six grandkids, Katlyn (Jacob), Tanner (Emilyn), Kole, Gracie, Haelyn and Hallie Jane; brothers, Chuck (Glenda) and Jeffrey (Traci); sister, Rebecca (Kim); granddog, Livvy; four great-grandkids, Vivi, Kollins, River and Oaklen; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; and Gunn, Hammock and Mullens families.
He will be missed dearly but we know he is on the river bank in Heaven, fishing with Jesus.
Visitation will begin at 1 pm, Thursday, June 1, 2023 at Carrville Baptist Church followed by the funeral service at 2 pm with Rev. Keith Ray officiating. Burial will follow in Rose Hill Cemetery.
