Thomas Leroy “Tommy” Jobe, age 79, went to be with his Lord on Friday, September 4, 2020. He was born June 26, 1941, in Tallulah, Louisiana. He died at Glenwood Hospital in West Monroe, Louisiana, from complications caused by COVID-19 double pneumonia.
Tommy worked for Tallulah Water Service for 44 plus years. He loved horses and his beagle dogs. He enjoyed hunting rabbits with his dogs and friends. He could tell you the name of the dog just by the bark while they were chasing rabbits. He was a member of Mound Baptist Church, but he attended First Baptist Church in Tallulah since his wife, Marie, died.
