Thomas Ward
1956 - 2020


My brother Tom Ward passed this morning in Lake Wales, Florida.  He was class of 74, though we came back stateside late 72.  After school, he joined the Army.   After several tours of duty he returned to civilian life settling in Florida.   He was an independent soul with a very sharp mind.   He recently beat leukemia but his compromised immune system could not fight off a severe case of influenza.  Hug those you love!  We will miss him greatly.   Gerald Ward. 

Thomas “Tommy” Ward of Lake Wales passed away Sunday, May 3, 2020 at Advent Health Lake Wales.
He was born July 5, 1956 in Liverpool, England to the late Jerald and Eileen Ward; he moved to Lake Wales from Lakeland in 2016. Tommy worked as a delivery and set up driver for Apex Office Supplies. He enjoyed miniature war gaming, painting, photography, and playing the guitar. He was a member of Wayside Baptist Church.

Tommy is survived by his brothers, Michael Ward of North Highlands, California; Jerry Ward of Fairhope, Alabama; Raymond Ward of Ft. Meade; Stephen Ward of Dothan, Alabama, and Wayne Ward of Fair
Oaks, California; and his caregiver Jeanette Blackmon.
