Tommie Gene Gafford, 48, a resident of Cape Coral, FL since 1981, formerly of Painesville, OH passed away Saturday, August 27, 2016 in Cape Coral, FL. He was born July 17, 1968 in Painesville, OH to Tommie and Norma Gafford (Giese)

Tommie was a loving, hard-working husband and father. He provided for his family materially, emotionally, and spiritually because of his unfailing loyalty to his family and to his heavenly Father, Jehovah. Tommie dedicated his life to serve Jehovah as one of his Witnesses on March 15, 1986, and over the years he had many congregational responsibilities. He served as a ministerial servant and later as an elder in the congregation, and, most recently, served as the congregation secretary. His skills in construction were put to good use in the construction projects taking place at the world headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Warwick, NY. He spent several happy and hard-working months on this and other projects. He will be remembered as a good provider and a faithful, spiritual man. His family loved him dearly and they already miss him very, very much.

He is survived by his loving wife, Kerry Gafford of Cape Coral, FL; three beloved children, Megan Gafford, Brandon Gafford and Jacob Gafford all of Cape Coral, FL; his parents, Tommie and Norma Gafford of Cape Coral, FL; one sister, Sharla Ostom (Todd) of CT; three brothers, Jeff Gafford of Cape Coral, FL, Zachary Gafford of Cape Coral, FL and Greg Gafford of Naples, FL; his mother and father-in-law, Glenn and Jackie Danis of Cape Coral, FL; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
