In Loving Memory of Thomas Whitehead Jr.

Thomas Whitehead Jr, known by Tommy to most and Superman to all, left us unexpectedly Saturday (10/24). We all are devastated by such a beautiful and loved person taken too soon. Tommy was a son, brother, husband, father, step father, and a friend to all. He touched so many lives, even those outside of his family. He would stop and help a stranger at any moment. We remember him as the man who helped turtles get across highways and the man who gave the clothes on his back to homeless people. He had a heart of gold and a humor that changed lives. He loved working on cars, creating tattoos, and was a jack of all trades. His left behind many people that will miss him dearly, but most importantly he left behind a 10 year old daughter. He did not have much money, and the expenses have piled up for his small family. Any amount of money, no matter how small, would be more than appreciated. We write this with sad hearts knowing no amount is worth his beautiful soul. Thank you!
