Tommy was born in Halifax County, NC on October 3, 1957, the third child of the late Finton and Jean Warren of Murfreesboro, NC. Tommy grew up on the farm and chose to make farming his life’s work. He also worked many years as a Diesel mechanic until his health failed. He was a member of Meherrin Baptist Church, professing his faith at a young age. Tommy was dedicated to his family and enjoyed Westerns, particularly those featuring John Wayne. He loved country music and working outside.
