Obituary of Thomas William Owens, Jr.

Thomas William Owens Jr. Thomas William Owens Jr. (Tommy) was a lifetime resident of Chattanooga, TN. He went home October 9, 2020 to be with Jesus, his parents, Thomas William Owens Sr. and Lois Dobbs Owens, and many loved ones. He was surrounded by his family and friends who told him, “see you later”, not goodbye. Tom was a graduate of Red Bank High School class of ‘69 and Chattanooga State, he worked as a Programmer Analyst at EPB and loved his career and the many friends he made during his 25 years of service. He was a member of Stuart Heights Baptist Church. If you knew Tommy you knew he was a lover of The Beatles, all things classic rock, Nascar, board games, and everything too spicy. If you did not know him as Tommy you knew him as Pepaw where he was either building a computer, listening to records, or “looking" something up online. Whether he was Tommy, Pepaw, or Tom one thing we know for certain, he loved Kate too much! Tom is survived by his wife Katherine Joan Owens, children Thad (Sharresa) Owens, Jason (Rebecca) Middleton, Jodi Leffew, Jamie Buttram, and Jason Collins, brothers David (Teresa) and Steve (Shanee) Owens, and sister Carol (William) Strother. Grandchildren TJ Owens, Molly Leffew, Whitney (Ty’Quan) Glaze, Caleb Collins, Trey Buttram, Jaymin Buttram, Yousef Soliman, and Miram Soliman, many nieces and nephews. Tom was also a beloved travel companion of many sisters in-law and brother in-law.
