He was born on June 26, 1940, to the late William and Buelah Newcomb in Buchanan, Va. Tommy was a hard worker and a true friend to those who knew him best. He retired after having faithfully served 25 years as a truck driver for Kroger. He thoroughly enjoyed fishing during his down time and loved spending time socializing and time with his church family. Above all, he will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend to all that knew him. He will be missed!
