Tommie Daniel Ward, 82, went home to be with the Lord March 12, 2017.

A Celebration of Tom’s life will be held from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Saturday  May 13, 2017 at 4th of July Park in Kernersville, North Carolina.

A native of Michigan, Tom was the son of the late Millicent Evangeline Fisher and Harold Edward Ward. Tom was retired from the 3M Company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He had served his country with the US Army. Tom was truly loved by the Kernersville community as he was a fixture at many locations that his motorized, flagged and decorated wheelchair would take him. He taught Euchre and played Bingo at the Senior Center.

In addition to his parents, he also was preceded in death by his brothers William Ward and Patrick Ward.

Tom was a member of First Christian Church.

Survivors include his loving wife of almost 52 years Joan Engle Ward of the home; daughters Sandra Griswold and Steve of Winston-Salem, and Theresa Ward of the home; grandchildren Stephanie, Melissa, Michelle, Nicole, Jonathan, Michael, and Emily; great-grandchildren Matthew, Zachary, Samantha, Harmony, Jason, Josephine, Declan, Harper, Alexander, and Olivia; brothers Joseph Fisher and Harold Ward; and a host of extended family that included his many Exchange Students from around the world.

If you wish to make a contribution, in Tom’s honor, please make it to your favorite charity.
