Mr. Tommy Lee Cummings, Jr.

Mr. Tommy Lee Cummings, Jr., passed away on Monday, January 15, 2024 at his residence. Funeral services were held on Wednesday, January 24, 2024 at 2:00 P.M. at Saint James Christian Fellowship with Pastor Mack Jackson officiating. Interment was held in Rest Haven Memorial Gardens.

Mr. Tommy Lee Cummings, Jr., a husband, father, grandfather, friend and committed Christian, was born in Sandersville, Georgia on December 17, 1955. He was the middle child of three sons born to the late Mr. Tommy Lee Cummings, Sr. and the late Mrs. Eugenia Veal Cummings.

To call Tommy a fighter is an understatement, he lived with; fought against; and survived cancer for over twenty three (23) years. He finally retired his gloves and left the ring on January 15 to be with his coach-his Lord and Savior at his residence surrounded by his loving family.

He attended the public schools of Washington County and graduated in 1974.

Tommy was a very hardworking man that embraced his responsibilities as a father and husband dedicated to protecting and providing  for his family. Tommy was raised old school, he was the man of his house and did not shy from letting you know that. His heart and his giving were both big which is why Christmas was his favorite holiday. He showered his family with whatever they wanted because seeing them happy was his happiness.

Mr. Cummings accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior on Sunday, April 29, 1984 at Saint James Christian Fellowship Church. From that day forward, he allowed God’s love and God’s teachings to guide his life. He loved the glory of the Lord so much that he wanted a deeper understanding of the word, which is why he read, outlined, color coded and symbolized the entire Bible. This daunting task of sixty six (66) books took him six years to complete, but he did it.

Tommy was a pillar in the Sandersville and Tennille communities, fondly known to all for his love of muscle cars; especially the Super Bee and the Road Runner. He also enjoyed outdoor activities, restoring automobiles and old-school jams. He had a passion and an unmatched talent for building space models. The pictures and collections speak for themselves.

Hard work was something Tommy did not shy away from even at an early age. He began his entrepreneurial career with a lawn care business. He also worked at a motorcycle shop which also fueled his passion for automobiles and the Piggly Wiggly Grocery store. He also worked at Georgia Pacific as a Lumber Grader and eventually became employed at the Kaolin Plant as a Slurry Operator in Sandersville. He retired from there after more than twenty years. Although he left the plant, he never stopped working, providing, protecting and serving God.

He was preceded in death by his son: Mr. Adrian Cummings and his brother: Mr. Raymond Cummings, Sr.

Mr. Cummings leaves behind to honor his legacy, a beautiful and devoted wife of over forty six (46) years: Mrs. Annette Cummings, Tennille, Georgia; two daughters: Mrs. Patrice (Antonio) Johnson, Ms. Endia Johnson, Atlanta, Georgia; one brother: Mr. Grayling (Beverly) Cummings, Sr., Warthen, Georgia; one grandson: Mr. Kaiden Davenport, Atlanta, Georgia; four aunts: Mrs. Lugene Sanford, Sandersville, Georgia, Mrs. Patricia (Hubert) Flournoy, Stockbridge, Georgia, Ms. Martha Scott, Warthen, Georgia, Mrs. Blanche Ford, Detroit, Michigan; one uncle: Mr. Robert (Winston) Veal, Palmetto, Georgia; bonus daughter: Ms. Rosilyn Lovett, Sandersville, Georgia; bonus son: Mr. Jevante Davenport, Atlanta, Georgia; a host of nieces, nephews, sisters and brothers-in-law, other relatives and friends. M. C. Smith Funeral Home in charge.
