Obituary for Thomas George Boone

Thomas G. Boone, 93, of Riverview, Fla., entered his heavenly home on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020, surrounded by his loved ones. His family sang him into the Gates of Heaven with “How Great Thou Art.” Born in Hamilton, Ohio in 1926, he moved to Florida in 1959 to care for his aging parents who preceded him in death, Beverly Boone, Sr. and Bessie M. Boone. He was also preceded in death by his dear wife Helen M. Boone after 53 years of marriage. They are now together again and rejoicing in their reunion in Heaven. Tom is survived by his daughters, Beverly (Joe) Hamrick of Riverview, Fla.; Vicki Miller of Columbia, Tenn.; and Betsy (Gerry) Willard of Riverview, Fla.; as well as five grandchildren: Becky (Jeremy) Laubershimer, Murfreesboro, Tenn.; Jason (Shay) Hamrick, Germantown, Tenn.; Caitlin Willard, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Daniel S. Miller, Columbia, Tenn.; and Keren Willard, Riverview, Fla. He was also a proud great-grandfather to five great-grandchildren: Lacey Laubershimer (10), Brayden Hamrick (8), Wyatt Laubershimer (5), Damon Hamrick (5) and Macie Anne Hamrick (2).

Tom retired from B & B/U-Save Supermarkets in 1988. He gave his life to Jesus in September 2007 at the age of 82 and actively began attending Bell Shoals Baptist Church where he became a beloved member. He gained many friendships during his time at Bell Shoals and was loved by many. He loved to be in nature, fishing, birdwatching, and taking long rides in the country. He went to Lettuce Lake Park often and his favorite food was fried catfish. He enjoyed playing with his grand-dogs and watching Andy Griffith and Gunsmoke. But more than anything, he loved being surrounded by his family.

He proudly served in the Korean War for the U.S. Marine Corps from 1949 to 1952 and he genuinely loved his country. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Wounded Warrior Project in his honor.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date, and his final resting place will be at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Fla.
