Mr. Thomas Randall “Tom” Wingard, 77, of Adairsville, entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ while he was surrounded by his loving family on November 27, 2020, at his residence.

Tom was born in McKenzie, Alabama on July 31, 1943. He was the son of the late Paul and Ola Lee Athey Wingard.

He was a veteran of the United States Air Force having served in the Vietnam era, 1961-1965. He was of the Christian faith and was a member of Trinity Baptist Church in Calhoun.

Tom was a husband who dearly loved his wife of 54 years, they were one. He set an example to his boys on how to love their wives, they watched him and their mother hold hands while walking, their dancing, their hugs, and kisses. He taught his sons to work hard, to touch people’s lives in a positive way any chance they had, and to love one another. He and JoAnn always kept an open home for their son's friends to feel comfortable and drop by at any time. He grew the family closer together and taught us love, compassion, and still gave us so much laughter.
