Celebrate Thomas’s Life!  Rejoice in his Transition!

As we celebrate the “transition” of Thomas into a higher life, it is natural that we who have known and loved him should rejoice as he arrives to his eternal home. We grew up with the saying: to “mourn when a person is born, and rejoice when they die.” So, Rejoice, Rejoice, Rejoice. He wants you to Rejoice!

Thomas was born on August 30, 1936 to the late Bessie R. Jordan and Thomas Fears in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Thomas served in the United States Air Force (A Vietnam Veteran) for 20 years and in various government agencies, such as the Department of Defense and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency for 27 years.

Thomas leaves a legacy of love, courage, and trust in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The Lord’s Prayer was his favorite prayer. He inspired and taught many, young and old, to treat others with respect, and as you would want to be treated, and to pray for those who hurt you. And, most importantly, to be grateful, to give love and laugh!

Thomas was a true gentleman and a genuinely wonderful person who touched the lives of everyone he met. His inner beauty showed through his loving kindness and strong desire to help and care for those in need.

Thomas always had a quest for knowledge. He studied Metaphysics and Spiritualism. He enjoyed supporting his wife’s ministry, while serving many churches and organizations. He knew that there is a spiritual world and a physical world, and that they do communicate with one another. So, he was not alone when he made his transition. His Guardian Angels were all there to welcome him home. And as he greeted them, I can imagine him saying “Precious Lord, take my hand, and lead me home.

Cherishing his memories and carrying on his legacy is his wife, Rev. Dorothy Fears of 26 years. Four children: Tony Fears (Terri), Pamela Fears, Akosua Fears, and Quentin Fears. He leaves five grandchildren – Tony Fears, Jr., Patrick Fears, Jovan Wells, Asha Fears, and Jocelyn Chatman, eleven great grandchildren, and one sister, Valerie Jones, Nephew, Daryle C. McGhee and Niece Joi Y. Brooks

He also leaves a host of other relatives, friends, and colleagues whose lives he touched.

We rejoice and celebrate Thomas’s life with you in his homegoing.

Love and Light! Peace and Many Blessings! Rev. Dorothy Fears, and Family

    Tom, was one of the nicest men I ever met. We met and started working together at the same place in 1999. Always had words of wisdom for me. I respected him and his friendship. I will truly miss him, but happy God allow our paths to cross. God Bless Mr. Fears to you and your family.
    John
