Obituary

Thomas Randal Greer was born in Iraan, Texas, on October 20, 1939, to Edna Mae Graves and John L. Greer. He died on July 28, 2020, at Iraan General Hospital at age 80.

Tommy was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Marsha Adair Greer, and a son, Joe Tom Greer.
He was also preceded in death by his siblings: John D. Greer, Dorothy Greer Boland, Joe L. Greer, and Jerold C. Greer. Tommy is survived by a sister, Margaret Holmes (Tommy Joe) of Iraan as well as many nieces, nephews, family, and friends.

After graduating from Iraan High School in 1957, Tommy joined the United States Army at age 17. Once he was honorably discharged, he went on what he called his college tour. He attended Texas A&M, Angelo College, Odessa College and Sul Ross. Tommy then worked in the oil field for the next 30 years. He worked as a diesel mechanic across Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. After an oil field accident, Tommy returned to Sul Ross State University earning a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree. He then started his second career as a counselor/caseworker at Texas Youth Commission. At TYC, Tommy positively impacted incarcerated youth and forged close friendships with his co-workers.

Tommy loved his hometown of Sheffield. He will be remembered for his generosity, his funny stories, and his laughter.

Graveside services will be led by Pastor Eric Bayer on Monday, August 3, 2020, at 9:00 am at the Sheffield Cemetery under the direction of Shaffer- Nichols Funeral Home. Pallbearers are Tommy’s nephews.
