We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Thompson's Funeral Home
Tommy Shannon Locklear, 46, of Maxton NC, was born on May 26, 1976 and departed this life on Friday, August 19, 2022 at Duke University Hospital. Tommy Shannon was preceded in death by his father and mother, Tommie and Betty Locklear; his paternal grandfather, Rodney Locklear and his maternal grandparents, Fred and Dorothy Maston.
Tommy Shannon accepted Christ at Union Chapel Community Baptist Church after the birth of his two sons. He was known as a provider for his family, and a trusted helpmate for those he loved. Tommy Shannon enjoyed teaching his sons the love of baseball, riding motorcycles and four-wheelers, and of course, although he would never admit it, he was known to be a “girl dad”. He could often be found by the pool cooking on the grill and one of his favorite messages was “I’m gonna throw us something on the grill, y'all come on”.
Tommy Shannon leaves to cherish his memories his wife of 21 years, Jessica; their three children, Cody O’Bryan, Jacob Dacoda, and Kaitlyn Breanne, all of the home; his sister and brother in-law, Crystal and Danny Ray, and their five children Danny Ray (Tray), Keely, Chaylea, Layleanna and Native; his paternal grandmother, Eula Locklear and a host of other relatives and friends.
