Thomas Claude Dyson, Jr.

June 7, 1942 — April 22, 2024

Mount Airy

Thomas C. Dyson (Tom or Junior), 81, of Mount Airy, MD, passed away at home on April 22, 2024, and into the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He was the oldest son of Thomas C. and Grace A. (nee Taylor) Dyson, Sr., of Mountain City, TN.

Tom was a faithful husband to Nancy Lee Sipple, who preceded him in death by almost eight years. They shared 55 years of marriage, which all started with Tom giving Nancy a driving lesson. Tom was a hard-working man who sacrificed much for the benefit of his family. He was a member of Central Baptist Church for over 55 years, and worked as an equipment operator and landscape foreman at the City of Gaithersburg, MD for over twenty years.

Tom is survived by his sons, Robert Lawrence Dyson (Wen) of Stafford, VA, and Gary L. Dyson (Emily) of Mount Airy, MD, grandchildren Samuel Taylor Dyson (Casey), Katharine Dyson-Rieth (Zachary), and Sarah Jiana Dyson, and great grandchild, Jonah Thomas Dyson. Thomas is survived by his brother Jimmy Wade Dyson, and sister, Kathy Dixon, and was preceded in death by siblings Mary Joan Dunn, Peggy Carol Dunn, Ray Steven Dyson, and Judy Lynn Vann. 

The family will receive friends at the Stauffer Funeral Home, 8 E. Ridgeville Blvd., Mt. Airy on Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 5-7PM. Funeral services will be at Stauffer Funeral home on Sunday, April 28, at 3PM.

The family will have a private graveside gathering at Pine Grove Cemetery in Mount Airy after the funeral, and celebrate the life of Tom with a reception for friends and family at Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church at 16151 Old Frederick Rd., Mt. Airy, immediately after the service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Central Baptist Church in Gaithersburg, or to an organization dedicated to the elimination of the pain from kidney stones.
