Tommy grew up in Cleveland, Texas and graduated from Cleveland High School in 1969. Not long after graduating, he married Nona Holloway and they started their own little family.

Tommy worked hard for his family but also enjoyed life! He loved to play sports, fish and hunt. However, as much as he was an outdoorsman, he liked to be on the couch watching college ball or following his grands around while they played sports. His number one priority was always family and he loved them all with everything he had! It’s been rumored that he had a favorite but to this day no one knows who that was.

Tommy is preceded in death by his parents William Cyrvin “W.C” and Dianne Lathan, as well as his birth mother Melba “June” Mills. He is also preceded in death by his beloved grandson, Rhett Cyrvin Lathan.
