Thomas Earl Owens, age 91 of Winchester, passed away on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at Southern Tennessee Regional Health Systems. He was born in Harvey, Illinois on August 9, 1926 to the late Warren and Nora Cleo Owens. Before his retirement, he was employed as a Boilermaker for thirty-five years at TVA and AERO. Thomas was baptized at Hope Baptist Church in Cowan, where he attended church regularly.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his wife, Alma Brewer Owens; siblings, Ethel Bedor, Orien Owens, Aaron Owens, Margie Anderson, Billy Jake Owens, Mary Lynn Daniel, and two infant siblings; and son, Douglas Owens. Thomas is survived by his children, Billie Jean (Robert) Jones of Tullahoma, Carolyn Faye Owens of Winchester, Rosemary (Danny) Neal of Winchester, James Earl (Alice) Owens of Winchester, Roy Allen Owens of Winchester, Dot Jackson of Pelham, and Shirley Joanne (Johnny) Raines of Athens, AL; adopted children, April Owens Hill and Douglas A. Owens, both of Winchester; sister, Rose Howard; eighteen grandchildren; several great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and special friend, Joyce Davis of Manchester.
