Thomas "Tommy" Gerald Grisham, 78, of Adamsville, Tennessee, died on Sunday, October 22, 2023, in his home. Tommy was of the Christian faith, was a member of Meeks Grove Baptist Church, and loved attending services whenever he was able. For over thirty years, he was a driver for D.L. Cutshall and Sons and loved every minute of it. Tommy was a very talented craftsman, and he could create new things from practically nothing. His specialty was crafting walking sticks, and in his lifetime, he had created over a hundred personalized walking sticks for his family and friends. What he enjoyed doing most of all, however, was spending time with his family and friends. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of his life.
Tommy is survived by his wife, Carolyn Grisham; his children, Stacy Mills (Clayton), LaDana Crowell (Edmund), Charlie Jones (Karen), Chris Jones, and Sarah Jones; his sisters, Gloria Brewer, Sylvia McMahan, Debra McDonald (Robert), and Cindy Hendrix (Gary); his grandchildren, Ella Mills, Candice Jones, Kassidy Irwin (Will), and Blake Jones (Michaela); his great-grandchildren, Josie Marie Jones and Ellie Jo Irwin; and a host of other family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Ruth Grisham; his brother, Charles Grisham; and his sister, Wanda Puckett.
Cutshall Funeral Home in Iuka was entrusted with the arrangements. Funeral services were at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 24, 2023, at Cutshall Funeral Home in Iuka, officiated by Charlie Jones and Clayton Mills. Interment followed in New Salem Cemetery. Pallbearers were Blake Jones, Noah Hostetler, Thomas Case, Nick Hendrix, Chris Jones, and David Brewer. An online guestbook may be accessed at www.cutshallfuneralhome.com.
