Thomas Eugene Howse Sr. was born on February 12, 1957 to John Edd Howse Sr. and Elmira Howse. Thomas was the fourth born child of seven. He transitioned from this earthly life to eternal life on December 29, 2020.

Thomas received his education in the Rutherford County School System and attended Riverdale High School. During high school, he was a member of the football team. Thomas later joined the United States Army and worked as an electrician; he was honorably discharged in 1979. Thomas loved gardening, rebuilding trucks and cars.

He enjoyed hunting, riding his four-wheeler, taking care of animals and anything that concerned the outdoors.

Thomas had numerous friends and made sure that he kept in contact with most of them throughout his life.

He was dearly loved by too many to name.
