Shillington, Thomas Raymond, age 85, passed away on August 12, 2020 in Mt. Juliet, TN. He struggled with a rare blood disorder, PNH, for the last eleven years. He fought the disease with spirit, good humor and a gracious manner. Whenever asked how he was feeling, Tom would routinely suggest that he was “practically perfect”.

 

Tom was born in Enterprise, OR on March 14, 1935. He was truly a self-made man. Upon graduating from high school in Oregon, he traveled cross-country to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology. He was a member of the Chi Epsilon fraternity. More importantly, however, is the fact that during his time at Georgia Tech, he met and married his wife of 63 years, Ann Griffin Shillington, in 1957. After working and attending classes at the same time, he ultimately graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1960.

 

Tom and Ann spent the majority of their married life in the Southeastern United States including stops in Atlanta, GA, Birmingham, AL, Miami, FL, Florence, SC and ultimately, Mt. Juliet, TN. While focused on raising their own children, they also acted as the patriarch and matriarch of the extended family with members located all over the United States. They truly enjoyed football weekends together pulling for both their own and their “adopted” teams as well as connecting with friends and family on extended road trips.

 

Tom worked primarily in the steel fabrication, pre-cast concrete and railroad industries as a sales engineer and engineering consultant. In fact, while working with Startrack Sales, Inc., Tom was instrumental in the renovation and reconstruction of the Alaskan Whittier Tunnel. This significant project upgraded the original train passage and opened the route to automobile traffic for the first time as well.

 

In spite of his illness, Tom was able to continue working and more importantly, travel with his devoted wife, Ann during the latter part of his life. They were able to spend a great deal of time with their extended family and exploring the world. In fact, while traveling to Alaska on business, Tom and Ann fell in love with all things Alaska. They enjoyed numerous cross-country trips together and came to love the overall culture of Alaska. It also enabled Tom to pursue his life-long passion for all types of fishing – particularly wild salmon and trout fishing.

 

Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin and Helen Dixon Shillington, his brother, Don Shillington and his sister, Nancy Peters. He is survived by his wife, Ann Shillington; his daughter, Lisa Hill and her husband Scott Hill; his son, David Shillington and his wife Dana Shillington; his sister, Diana Gross and his sister-in-law, Mary Ann Shillington. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Corey Hill, Michael Shillington and Lauren Shillington. Finally, he is survived by his nieces and nephews, Pamela Riebesehi, Ronda Cowlishaw, Amy Bouie, Tyna Moreschi, Donna Shillington Gaherty and Brian Shillington.

 

Private Family Services will be held at a later date in Decatur, GA. Any remembrances may be directed to NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders) in Woburn, MA.

Snyder, Darrell Lee, age 74, died Monday August 17, 2020 in hospice care after a long battle with cancer. Lee died peacefully in his sleep. He leaves behind wife of 35 years, Cathy Laminack Snyder, children: Rick and wife Bridgette, Darrell and wife Diane, Wendy and husband Ron (FSIL), Jared and wife Anna, and Josh. Lee was born in Albany, New York March 6, 1946 son of Walter and Gertrude Snyder. Lee was a graduate of Van Rensselaer High School, class of 1964. Lee lived a full life of love, laughter, adventure, and most of all a passion for Jesus Christ.

 

Lee’s love extended not just to his immediate family, but to his church, Priest Lake Christian Fellowship, to his friends, to workers from various companies that would come to his house, and any other soul that he engaged with. Lee was protective, generous, caring, tough, joyful, and passionate and extended each of these qualities to those around him (especially so to those he cared about most) in hopes of seeing people grow to their full potential.

 

Lee’s laughter and sense of adventure was contagious. People flocked to him because Lee was true to who he was. He loved to laugh and loved it when others laughed along with him. He always promised adventure to those who got close to him and always delivered on those relationships being a fantastic adventure.

 

Lee now lives with his Lord, Jesus Christ. He has faithfully and passionately loved Christ in His life, and we are faithful that he now rests with Christ. Lee always said that Christ was head of the team. That will remain true both now and forevermore.

 

The family asks in lieu of flowers please consider donating to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Priest Lake Christian Fellowship in memory of Lee Snyder.

 

Due to COVID-19, the family will have a private memorial service. The family appreciates everyone’s thoughts and prayers during this time.

Tate, James R. “Jimmy”, age 71, a lifelong resident of Mt. Juliet, TN, died August 18, 2020.

 

Born April 12, 1949, to the late Robert and Kathleen Hibbett Tate of Mt. Juliet; Mr. Tate was a 1967 graduate of Mt. Juliet High School and received a degree in history from Cumberland College. After graduation, he and a friend drove north through the United States and into Canada just to say they did.

 

He owned and operated the family farm, Pine Springs Farms, while simultaneously holding other jobs throughout his life, retiring in 2001 from the U.S. Postal Service after a 27-year career. He fulfilled both union duties and rural route delivery, enjoying face-to-face communication with his customers, their yard sales, and their delicious holiday treats.

 

He took his wife, Linda Martin Tate, to Charlie Daniels’ Volunteer Jam for their first date; and they married at the home of two former Mt. Juliet mayors, N.C. and Jenny Bess Hibbett in 1984. He embraced her children as his own, helped them learn to be good stewards of the land and the community, and like all good dads, frequently asked when they’d last checked the oil in their vehicle.

 

For 16 years, Mr. Tate was elected to the Wilson County Commission for his district and was quoted in The Lebanon Democrat for cursing its reporter, although privately claimed he was just expressing his feelings and there was no “you” attached to the admitted profanity.

 

He was past president of the Mt. Juliet Kiwanis Club, past board member of the Mt. Juliet/West Wilson Chamber of Commerce, charter member of the Mt. Juliet/West Wilson Historical Society, and a charter member of the Mt. Juliet/West Wilson Big Brothers.

 

After his retirement from the USPS, Mr. Tate turned his attention to model trains. He was former president of the Music City Chapter of the Train Collectors Association, worked on the annual Kid’s Christmas Train Show in Nashville, and the model train layouts at both the Wilson County Fairgrounds and the Mt. Juliet Library. He joined several boards of directors, serving as president of the West Wilson Utility District Board of Commissioners until last year.

 

Mr. Tate was a member of Mt. Juliet Church of Christ; and his family was instrumental in the charter of Cloyd’s Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

 

He was active in early Mt. Juliet haunted hayrides, loved UT-Knoxville football games, and enjoyed calling his friend’s children on Christmas Eve pretending he was Santa. He often tried to win on the Nashville radio WSIX’s Liar’s Club, and was once filmed by a local television station herding cows in full dirty overall regalia, yelling “sucka, sucka, sucka” which was not how he normally called them. He delighted in a good practical joke and extolled the use of duct tape. He had a story about every inch of Mt. Juliet and most of Wilson County.

 

Mr. Tate was able to stay at home for the majority of his long illness and only needed a long-term care facility beginning last year. Because of mandatory isolation required for long-term care facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, restricted visitation policies made things difficult. Like so many older people in this forced isolation, it drained him.

 

His family is grateful for the time allowed with him at Nashville’s Alive Hospice before his passing and gives special thanks to home health caregivers Chimea (Mea) Dyers, Mike Didio, Sr., Mary Holt and Richard Howard.

 

In addition to his parents, Mr. Tate is preceded in death by his cousins, whom he loved as brothers, N.C. Hibbett and John Wayne Everett of Mt. Juliet.

 

He is survived by wife of 35 years, Linda Martin Tate; sons, Jeff Martin (Georgia) and Eddy Martin; daughters, Lori Martin Barnes (Jeffrey) and Beth Martin Jones (Cory); three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; nephews of heart, Robert “Bobby” Hibbett (Kelly), Johnny Hibbett (Susan) and Tommy Hibbett (Lynda); and beloved friend and long-term caregiver, Richard Howard (Patricia).

 

Due to the increasing spread of the COVID-19 virus in Wilson County, services will be conducted at the graveside at Caraway Cemetery in Gladeville at 11 a.m. Saturday, August 22, 2020 with Pat Hackney officiating. Active pallbearers will be sons and nephews. Honorary pallbearers will be employees of the West Wilson Utility District and members of the Music City Chapter of the Train Collectors Association.

 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Mt. Juliet Church of Christ Building Fund, Tennessee Central Train Museum, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Alive Hospice.

 

For those who plan to attend, please wear a mask.

Visitation will be from 5-8 p.m. Friday at Bond Memorial Chapel, N. Mt. Juliet Road and Weston Drive, Mt. Juliet, TN. (615) 773-2663. www.bondmemorial.com
