Tommy Tomlinson might not be well-known outside of East Texas, but he was a local radio fixture in Tyler for about 40 years. Many Sunday mornings I listened to his gospel music radio program before listening to Lassere Bradley's Baptist Bible Hour. Tommy was 89 years old and a retired teacher. His last program was Sunday, August 13, 2006 before his passing on Monday the 14th.
Tommy Tomlinson was born December 24, 1916 in Paris, TX and passed away Monday, August 14, 2006, in Tyler.
Services for Hugh C. "Tommy" Tomlinson, 89 of Tyler, were held on Thursday, August 17, 2006 at Marvin United Methodist Church. Burial followed in the Rose Hill Cemetery in Tyler, TX.
Partly based on Stewart Funeral Home online obituary
I think he always ended his program with "Good-bye, good luck and may the Good Lord smile upon you."
