Obituary

ATTENTION: Everyone that enters the funeral home and or attending the services- MUST WEAR A MASK

Tommy Hughie Thompson, age 82, son of the late Roy Ellis Thompson and Ophelia Catherine Thompson, was born October 12, 1939. He departed this life and transitioned to his eternal heavenly home on Sunday, January 23, 2022.

A resident of Robbins, NC, Tommy grew up in a large family where he was one of ten children. He is a graduate of Pinckney High School. Tommy was a gifted mechanic spending many of his days working on large diesel trucks. He was a hard worker and provider for his family working over the years for such companies as Milliken Textiles, Purvis Farms, H. H. Willett, Salem Leasing Trucking, and Moore County Transportation Service (MCTS), where he retired. 

From his early childhood, Tommy attended Bear Creek Congregational Church and later became a member of Collins Chapel Congregational Church serving for many years as a Trustee and member and President of the singing ministry with the Collinaires. He was also very faithful to the 5th Sunday Union Conferences.

Singing and praising God was a passion for Tommy. While in high school and years beyond, he sang in the NFA Quartet and over the years he continued his passion of singing, most recently with the Sensational Jubilaires. Tommy was saved. Once he truly gave his life to Christ, he served the Lord with gladness, fought a good fight, and has now finished his course.

Tommy had a smile that would light up a room and that smile caught the attention of  Lucille Davis Thompson, the love of his life, whom he was joined together in marriage as husband and wife for 62 years. They were blessed with six children.

Tommy was preceded in death by three brothers, Elonza Thompson, Herman Thompson, Juan (Buster) Thompson, and one sister, Emma Scott. 

He leaves to cherish his memory his beloved wife, Lucille Davis Thompson; six children Miguel Hughie Davis (Cathy); Clarke Deandre Thompson, Farrell Arnez Thompson, Yvette Renee Thompson, Tommy Bryice Thompson (Takitta), and Ursula Eileen Thompson; five grandchildren – Jessica Davis, Brandon Davis, Jaidah Spencer, Morgan Spencer and Jayden Thompson; and two great grandchildren, Natalia Davis and Nikolai Davis; Three brothers, Harrison Thompson (Mittie); Roy (June) Thompson, Jr.; Donald Thompson (Alma); and two sisters, Marva Austin and Paulette Scotton (Norman); several nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
