Thomas Avery

The Newnan Times-Herald

Mr. Thomas W. Avery, 87, of Newnan, went to be with the Lord he loved Nov. 17, 2022, at his residence.

Born April 4, 1935, in Newnan, he was the son of the late William W. Avery and Kitty Avery.

Mr. Avery spent most of his life in Newnan. He graduated from Newnan High School and worked for Georgia Power Company for many years before retiring to Florida to enjoy fishing and working at Sun Bank. When he returned to Newnan, he reconnected with friends and coworkers, and every Thursday morning you'd find him and his buddies at Cracker Barrel enjoying great fellowship. He was also a lifetime member of the Masonic Lodge in Turin.

Mr. Avery is survived by his wife, Gail Shipp Avery; his son, William Howard Avery (Tammy) and his daughter Donna Avery Andrews (Michael); grandsons, Dean Avery (Christine) and Kyle Avery (Alex Sartor); great-granddaughter, Bailey Avery; great-grandson, Kasen Formby; and local cousins and nieces.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2022, at 2 p.m. at First Baptist Church, Historic Sanctuary, 15 W. Washington St., Newnan with the Rev. Lee Chitwood officiating. A burial will follow at Oak Hill Cemetery. The family will receive friends Monday evening from 5-7 p.m. at McKoon Funeral Home.
