Thomas Robert Heath III

Thomas Robert Heath III, 70, of Wanchese, died Tuesday, November 6.

Tommy had a strong faith in God and loved his family without end. He is survived by his two sons, Shane Heath (Ashley) and Casey Heath; grandchildren Christopher, Haylee, Jase, DaKada, Casey Jr., and Gabriel; long-time friend Ricki Tillett and her three sons.

Tommy worked most of his life in the grocery business. After retiring, he was a full-time caregiver for Ricki’s youngest son, Kolton. Tommy enjoyed the beach and other outside activities, watching sports games and taking a chance on them. He was a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan and always wore his “favorite” Cowboys hat.

A memorial service will be held in late November at the Source Church.

Twiford Funeral Home, Manteo is assisting the family with arrangements. www.TwifordFH.com
