Deacon Tommy accepted Christ at an early age and was a member of Greater Shiloh Missionary
Baptist Church of Canebrake (previously Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church) for over 60 years.
He served faithfully as an Usher and later ordained as a Deacon. He was a true servant of God
and whenever the church was invited to worship with another church Deacon Tommy was
always in attendance. He also loved his church family and ministering as a deacon was a
rewarding and honorable calling for him.

Richard Lackerson, and Sonny Hamilton Lackerson Webb; sister Elizabeth “Cal” Sloan; sister-
in-laws Tena King “TK” Grant, Rev. Willie Moore, David Moore, Benjamin Moore, James
Moore, Susie Mae Durham, Annie Marie Thomas, and Mildred Brown; and too many other
relatives, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends to name who adored him much. Deacon Tommy
leaves to mourn his loving wife Louise Grant; sisters Essie Grant and Patrina Lackerson;
daughters Linda Williams, Sharon Grant-Sellers (Joe), Cathy Gordon, Sheila Moore, Ernestine
Moore and Sarah Moore; sons Tommy Lee Grant and Michael Moore; uncle Jerome Pinckney;
18 grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren; sister-in-law Antionette Moore, goddaughter Ernestine
Riley; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, church members and friends.
To his family he leaves precious memories and his undying love that will lift their spirits.
