Thomas Leon "Tommy" Agee

November 12, 1950 — November 30, 2022

Thomas (Tommy) Leon Agee was born on November 12, 1950 in Christiansburg, VIrginia and departed from this life peacefully in his home on November 30, 2022 in Salem, Virginia following a difficult battle with cancer. He was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas F. and Minnie Woolwine Agee of Salem, Virginia. He is survived by his fiancé and soulmate, Becky Roop of Roanoke, Virginia; his sister, Deborah Agee Nall of Bluefield, West Virginia; his niece, Hannah Nall Rogers (Ryan) and great nephew, Cohen Samuel Rogers of Bryant, Arkansas, along with a host of cousins and friends.
Tommy was a graduate of Auburn High School, where he was an outstanding athlete in basketball and an ever present charmer within the student body. He served in the US Army during the Vietnam Conflict and served two additional terms in the Armed Forces. He later attended New River Community College following his military service and ultimately retired from the National Park Service.
Tommy was an avid reader and lover of history. His thirst for knowledge was never quenched, as he maintained a voluminous library and was a walking encyclopedia on the subjects of WWII history and aircraft's, along with his love for vintage John Deere tractors.
He had great admiration for his friends and was faithful to keep up with many stemming back from high school. He will be sorely missed by those friends and his family who loved him dearly.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, December 5, 2022 at Horne Funeral Home. Funeral services will be on Tuesday, December 6, 2022 in the Horne funeral home chapel with Rev. Stephen L. Board and Rev. Deborah Agee Nall officiating. Interment will follow in Sunset Cemetery.
The family would like to express their gratitude for the service of Dr. Andrew Fentel and Staff of the Blue Ridge Cancer Center and the wonderful care of Good Samaritan Hospice, all of Salem.
Tommy will live forever in our hearts.
