Thomas Ray Jackson, a resident of Tom, Oklahoma, passed away on November 10, 2023. Born on June 20, 1957, in DeQueen, AR, to Alvin and Claudia Jackson. He was preceded in death by his parents Alvin and Claudia Jackson of Haworth, OK, a brother Virgil Jackson of Eagletown, OK, and grandparents Ed and May Belle Jackson of Broken Bow, and Virgal and Ruth Morris of Clebit, OK.
He has left to cherish his memory two daughters and sons-in-law, Stacy and Mark Heath of Foreman, AR, and Wendy and Dustin Borden of Lawton, OK. Tommy is also remembered by his grandchildren, Brent and his wife Shawna of Tom, OK, and Blake of Foreman, AR, and Robert Schoonover, Ty Schoonover, Emily Borden, and Hunter Borden, of Lawton, OK.
His memory also lives on through his sisters and their families: Anita and Bruce Franklin of Broken Bow, OK, including their children Kelly Ganem and husband Morgan of Tulsa, OK, and Chris Franklin of Norman, OK and daughter Penelope Franklin; and Claudine and Tom O’Laughlin of Stillwater, OK, with their family, John O’Laughlin and wife Cecilia, along with their son Alex of San Francisco, CA, and Amanda Webb and husband Sean, with their sons Ryan and John of Stillwater, OK.
Tommy enjoyed fishing, spending time with his family and many friends, and working on and restoring old cars and trucks. He was a self-taught mechanic, and seldom experienced a mechanical challenge that he couldn't solve. Tommy consistently displayed a profound sense of compassion. In moments of his deepest despair, he made it a priority to uplift others, bringing a smile to their faces even when he grappled with personal challenges. His loving and caring nature mirrored the sparkle in his eyes when he laughed, reminiscent of his mother. With a penchant for sharing the same old jokes, Tommy found joy in the simple act of telling them repeatedly. His welcoming spirit knew no strangers, as he extended kindness and compassion to everyone he encountered.
