Tommy Lee Fordham, Sr - December 4, 1949 - July 20, 2017
Tommy Lee Fordham passed away July 20, 2017, after being awesome for 67 years. Tommy, a former marine who was much tougher than you are, worked in construction most of his life. He built roughly 1 in five houses* in the Savannah area during the 70s, 80s and 90s. He then turned to designing homes, after recognizing that most of the plans he worked from just weren't epic enough.
Tommy died from cancer, but continued to work, at times doing so while receiving chemo treatments. Like, actually sitting with a laptop while the drugs dripped through an IV. This proves, again, that he was much tougher than you.
Tommy is survived by his great wife of 47 years, June, two pretty OK sons Tommy, Jr. and Bryan, who both married up, and his brothers and sisters. He also had 5 grand kids who he was crazy about, and who loved him dearly.
Tommy was a hard worker, good at everything he did, and a hero to a lot of people. He loved, picked on, and was proud of his family. Yeah, even that one relative everyone talks about. He will be greatly missed, and the world is a bit less awesome today without him.
*This may be a slight exaggeration. But only a slight one.
