Thomas Clayton Gattis
Birth: Apr. 18, 1921
Georgia, USA
Death: Feb. 14, 2006
Waycross
Ware County
Georgia, USA

Son of Mack Donald and Elsie Mae Yarbrough Gattis. Thomas Clayton Gattis married Ruby Satterwhite in the early 1940s.


Uncle Tom was such a kind-hearted, generous, Southern gentleman. He was a pivotal figure in our family but lacked any hint of arrogance. Instead, his gentle nature and sense of inclusiveness instantly warmed the hearts of everyone. I remember at a family reunion in Bell, Florida, he conducted the Sunday lesson on Christians' being the "salt of the earth." I never realized how many uses this simple commodity had until then, and how we, as Christians, in our daily walk, should influence others as a standard of purity, a preservative against evil, and a flavor-enhancing joie de vivre. We are so blessed to have him season our lives!
