On Monday, February 17, 2020 Thomas Donnell Sealock, loving husband and father of two daughters, passed away.
Tom was born on May 24, 1949 in Columbus, Ohio. He was preceded in death by his parents, Kay Sealock Shipton and Donn Sealock.
Tom leaves behind the love of his life, Jane Eanes Sealock and daughters, Melissa Sealock Perryman (Andy Gatewood) and Merideth Sealock Houseman (Joe Houseman). He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Alexander Perryman, Ella Kate Perryman, Riley Jane Houseman and Huntington Houseman all of whom were his pride and joy.
Tom embraced life in the south after moving from Ohio with his siblings whom he loved immensely. Siblings include older sister, Kathie Sealock Kirts (John Kirts) and two younger brothers, Steve Sealock (Vickie Slade Sealock) and Doug Sealock (Abbie Sealock). He also adored his nieces and nephews; Laura Sealock Johnson, Brian Sealock, Kevin Kirts, Lisa Kirts Rhodes and Tommy Sealock along with his great-nieces and nephews. Tom also loved extended family including Charles Slade and the rest of the Slade family, Cathy Smith (Dave, David Jr. and Michelle) and Claudia Gatewood.
Tom and Jane both attended Cross Keys High School in Atlanta, Georgia. After marrying on August 9, 1969, Tom served in the United States Army from 1969-1972. He received several commendations including the Air Medal and Vietnam Service Medal as well as two Sharp Shooter medals as a member of the 335th Assault Helicopter Company �Cowboys�.
Tom went on to build a lucrative career as an executive in freight logistics. Prior to retiring, he finished his career alongside family in the family-run business Community Waste Services.
Tom and Jane retired to Amelia Island with their beloved Golden Retriever, Matt. Each day was spent celebrating life and watching sunsets at the beach together.
Everyone who knew Tom will remember his unselfish manner, his beautiful smile, his loyalty, compassion and sense of humor. One of his favorite quotes was �So Far, So Good�, and it truly was.
A memorial service will be held in Georgia National Cemetery in Canton, Georgia at at 11:00 am on Monday, March 9, 2020 with Military Honors.

When I think about Tom, I see his larger-than-life smile and hear him laughing in amusement at whatever was going on. One thing is for sure, he CHERISHED his family and seeing them laugh and smile made him SO happy. He had such a special sense of humor and made everyone feel so welcome. Your family is so close and so loving � this is a tremendous loss. I LOVE you Sealock family!!!
