This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Thomas Gough Jr., 69 years old, born on September 6, 1952, and passed away on December 18, 2021. We will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Tom was an adventurer, he was all about the wind in his face, riding his beloved motorcycles from his early days to his later years. He loved driving convertable sports cars, flying open cockpit planes and gliding along the rivers and water ways on his tug boats. He traveled the United States and abroad and was one of a few pilots to earn a Masters Captains License, which enabled him to pilot a tug boat on every navigible waterway in the United States. He could operate any Heavy equipment and was also a genuine Gunsmith.

Tom became a christian in the early 1980s and asked Jesus Christ to forgive his sins and be his Lord and Savior. He completely changed the direction of his life and many times read the bible from cover to cover. Tom mowed the grass at his church and worked with youth programs. We knew that when we needed prayer in the middle of the night, he would be there to pray and encourage with scripture. He was generous with his money and would give a stranger his last dollar. He was very firm in his beliefs......some people call that stubborn. He paid for my sister’s car to be fixed when they were short on money after her daughter was born, that’s who Tom was, he blessed us all.

We will miss Tom dearly and know most of all that he would want you to experience the same grace and forgiveness that he knew and know that it is available to you through Jesus death on the cross. “John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Trust in Jesus, Tom would love to see you in heaven with him someday, God bless!
