Thomas "Tom" Louis Muir, Jr. Obituary

Thomas Louis "Tom" Muir Jr., 71, resident of Tippah County, passed away peacefully Monday morning October 16, 2023, at Tippah County Hospital following an extended illness.

Funeral Service honoring Mr. Tom's life will be 2 PM Thursday October 19, 2023, in the Heritage Chapel of The Ripley Funeral Home with Dr. Jeff Moore officiating. Visitation will be 5 PM until 8 PM Wednesday October 18, 2023, in the Heritage Chapel of The Ripley Funeral Home and will continue from 9 AM on Thursday until service time. Burial will follow in Chapman Church of Christ Cemetery.

Born January 18, 1952, in Greenville, Mississippi, Mr. Tom was the son of the late Thomas Louis Sr. and Reba Cooley Muir. He received his education from the Memphis Public School System and proudly served his country in the United States Air Force. Mr. Tom was employed with the Kroger and Bud Light Corporations and, after meeting his beloved wife Linda Chapman Muir in 1996, he worked alongside her at Edwards Pharmaceutical. Together they lived in Tippah County, and he took an interest in real-estate which led him to working with Elite Reality for 10 years before his retirement.

A Christan and member of Falkner Baptist Church, Mr. Tom was an avid hunter. His true passion was wearing camo and enjoying nature. He traveled all over the world, to multiple places such as Africa, Alaska, and all other fifty states on multiple hunting excursions and fishing trips. When he was not hunting, he found joy in sharing time with his wife, Linda. In earlier years they would travel to various places, which included the Caribbeans where he enjoyed scuba diving. Mr. Tom was always full of life and was just recently working on becoming a "Biker" by purchasing his first Trike. He will truly be missed by all those who knew and loved him.

Those left to cherish his memories include his wife, Linda Chapman Muir, one daughter, Brandy Ware (Steve) of Ripley, one step son, Stoney White of Ripley, one sister, Karen Alexander (Mike) of Cordova TN, three grandchildren, Tiffany Salmon (Donnie) of Walnut, Dalton Waldrop of Houston, MN, and Christopher Ware of Ripley, four great great grandchildren, Landon Wayne Salmon, Levi Wayne Salmon, Laten Wayne Salmon, and Legend Wayne Salmon, all of Walnut, a sister in law, Cindy Pruitt (Mike) of Ripley, three nieces, Elizabeth Irvin (Josh) of Hernando, MS, Lenzi Carroll (Matt) of Germantown, TN, and Ava Alexander of Cordova, TN, two nephews, Michael Pruitt (Lindsay) and Chris Pruitt both of Ripley. He was also known for his role as "Uncle Tom" to Lawson Sanders.
