He was a registered nurse and worked for several Charlotte metro-area nursing homes, as well as Bayada Home Health Care in Charlotte. He retired in 2010. Tommy was also a U.S. Air Force veteran and member of First Baptist Church of Lowell.
Native to Huntington, West Virginia, Tommy was born to the late Thomas V. and Edna Mae (Murray) Sliger. He graduated from Barboursville High School in 1964, and in 1986 earned a BSN from Marshall University. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Nora Murray, and brother-in-law, Ronald R. Scarberry.
Tommy was a fun-loving and gentle soul who enjoyed card games with his family and friends, dancing to 60s music—from the Beatles to the Gaithers, and studying world and American histories. He appreciated diverse people and animals alike, and spent a lot of his free time caring for his beloved shelties. He also loved to vacation near the ocean and spent weekends manning his jet ski on lakes and rivers throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and West Virginia. Mostly, Tommy will be remembered for his quick wit and unique perspective on just about everything!
Immediate survivors include his loving wife, Carolyn (Shuler) Sliger of Stanley; sister, Joana Kristy (Sliger) Scarberry of Ona, WV; in-laws, Gary and Angela Shuler of Stanley; nephew, Thomas Sliger Scarberry and wife, Gemma; great niece and nephew, Savannah and DJ Scarberry, all of Ona, and a loving "family" of life-long friends.
