Thomas Scott Card
WATER VALLEY—Early on a beautiful summer morning, Tuesday, September 8, 2020,  in Water Valley, Thomas Scott Card went to rest high on that mountain. His days on earth were done and he is now at peace with the Lord.
Born February 1, 1981, in Shelby, Thomas is a son of Linda Card (Peacock). He was an avid hunter and fisherman and was never happier than when he fished in Guy Dale Shaw’s pond. Whether hunting deer, ducks or squirrels, it didn’t matter to him, he just liked being in the woods or on the lake. Thomas especially looked forward to the opening of squirrel season at Howell’s Hunting Camp, east of Eden.
Thomas loved to eat and he wasn’t picky, his favorites being Mama’s fried pork chops and Meme’s barbecue chicken and cornbread dressing. Give him a chocolate pie and it would be gone in no time.
He earned his degree from Northwest Community College in Tool and Dye and was working at Valley Tool at the time of his death. He was a member of Jumpers Chapel Congregational Methodist Church where his remains will be at rest.
Survivors include his wife, Lynne Sims-Card of Brandon; a son, Brayden Scott Card, also of Brandon; a daughter, Carolyne Taylor Card of Grenada; his mother and step-father, Linda and Randy Peacock of Coffeeville; his father and step-mother, Thomas Scott “Sam” Goodwin and Phyllis Goodwin of Water Valley; two brothers, Patrick Card (Suzanne) of Shreveport, La., and Randy Peacock, Jr. of Water Valley; four sisters, Missy Kimzey (Kevin) of Water Valley, Joy Bratcher (Michael) of Brandon, Audrey Kirkland of Charlotte, N.C., and Ashley Crowe of New Albany; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Thomas’ life will be held at a later date, with Seven Oaks Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
