Tommy aspired to join the military but couldn’t because he was the baby of 13. That didn’t stop him from being patriotic and believing in his country. He had many hobbies with most of them having some sort of motor involved. He was known for his love of flying airplanes that he built himself. Tommy enjoyed traveling but usually only went on short trips. He possessed a real easy attitude while still letting you know exactly where you stood with him. He was a strong patriarch of his family, a good friend to all, a man who would give his shirt for a friend. Tommy was a good father who always took care of his children and did the best he could to teach and guide them, a loving grandfather and “great-grand” father to many, he was loved beyond words and will be forever remembered. A visitation will be held on Saturday, December 26 at Trinity Funeral Services from 10 am to 11 am with a chapel service officiated by Bro. Neill Tapp. Interment to follow at Finley Cemetery. Tommy believed in being on time…so don’t be late. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to assist the Burrill family during this difficult time and asks that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
