Tommy Clemmons

Henton Thomas "Tommy" Clemmons went to be with His Lord and Savior on Thursday, January 26th, 2023 at Lexington Medical Center in Lexington, South Carolina. Tommy was a wonderful husband to Brenda Parrish Clemmons for 56 years, the best dad to Melissa Clemmons Guinn and Tommy Clemmons, Jr and the best "Paw Paw" to Caroline Rose Guinn. He had many wonderful friends and a supportive family who loved him very much.  There will not be a day that he will not be missed! 

Tommy was born in Fayetteville, NC. He was the son of the late Henton Hall and Ina Mae Clemmons. He is survived by his wife Brenda Parrish Clemmons; daughter, Melissa Clemmons Guinn (husband, Steve Guinn and daughter, Caroline); and son, Tommy Clemmons Jr. He is also survived by his brothers, Jerry Clemmons of Fayetteville, NC, and Vernon Clemmons of Lagrange, NC. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews who also loved him very much. In addition to his parents, Tommy was predeceased by his sister, Betty Jean Clemmons Walters.

For most of his adult life, Tommy was very involved in the leadership of the church. He worked for BP Oil Company as a Sales Rep and owned a BP Station in downtown Columbia for 11 years where he served our community. He was a Gideon and traveled from place to place sharing Bibles and the message of Jesus' love and salvation with many people. He was a talented woodworker and could play the banjo, guitar and piano by ear. He loved life and people and it showed by the way he lived. Though no man is perfect, we know that Tommy loved Jesus, his family and his community. 

A celebration of his life will be held at 2:00 PM, on February 11, 2023 in the Mausoleum Chapel of Woodridge Memorial Park in Lexington, SC with visitation held one hour prior to the service.   

Our family would like to thank the many doctors, nurses and caregivers who helped us along the way. We would also like to thank our family and friends who have prayed for us, supported us and helped us. We know that each one has been a blessing from the Lord. 

Romans 12:10-12 "Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit. Serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer."
