Thomas "Tommy" Williams Obituary

Thomas Lee Williams (Tommy), 80, of Kingsport, passed away peacefully at home on December 30, 2023 following a period of declining health.  Tommy was born in Louisville, KY on January 6, 1943.  He was raised in Campbellsville, KY where he married his wife of 61 years, Nancy Peters Williams in December of 1962.  Together, they relocated to Great Falls, Montana where Tommy served at Malmstrom Air Force Base. There, he was called into the ministry, so they returned to Campbellsville, KY where he later graduated from Campbellsville College. 
In the years following his ordination, he served as pastor of Raikes Hill Baptist Mission, Bradfordsville Baptist Church, and Turner Ridge Baptist Church, all in KY.  He later pastored Fort Robinson Baptist Church here in Kingsport.  After retiring from pastoring, Tommy worked at Lifeway Christian Store in Johnson City.  He and Nancy are current members of First Baptist Church in Church Hill.
Tommy dedicated his life to the Lord and his family.  He was always looking for a joke, a laugh or sneaking sweets behind Nancy’s back.  
Tommy was a loving husband to his wife Nancy and father to his son, David (deceased) and his daughter, Dena Williams Porter (Bond Porter) He was a loving grandfather to Maggie and her husband Michael Whitely and Analee and Isabelle Porter.  He was the son of Jessie Isabel Young Williams Hash Wood and Percy Thomas Wiliams of KY, both deceased.  Tommy had two siblings, Rita Hash Moyers (Ernie) and Sam Hash, both still living in Campbellsville.
