Tommy Compton Obituary

Mr. Tommy Joe Compton, age 78 of Clinton passed away at his home on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.

Tommy was born and raised on Pine Ridge Road in the Marlow Community. Per his wishes, he passed away peacefully in his sleep in the same location as the original family home he was born in. 

Tommy was a soldier in the US Army stationed on ARADCOM Naval bases. He left the military with the rank of E-5 and with several commendations for his excellent service. 

Tommy was also a member of the Anderson County Toy Run Association (ACTRA) for 20 years and was Chairman for 6, making many lifelong friends in the process who have now become the family’s friends. He was very humble and very proud that he was a part of this association, which over the years raised over $244,000 so that Anderson County Children in need could shop and have a wonderful Christmas.
