Tommy Lynn Geurin, 68, died on September 20, 2022. A celebration of his life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 23, 2022 at the Centennial Chapel at Harvey Douglas Funeral Home in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
Born on December 29, 1953, Tommy was the third child of Thomas Leon Geurin and Willa Dean Geurin. He was the brother of Bob, Larry, Carole and Richard. During his formative years, Tommy became an avid outdoorsman as a member of the Boy Scouts. He always looked forward to Boy Scout-sponsored camping and hiking trips.
Tommy graduated from Ardmore High School in 1972 and soon after married the love of his life and his high school sweetheart, Shelley Ann Tyler. Shelley and Tommy would have been married for 50 years on November 16, 2022.
Tommy was a loyal and dedicated worker, working only two jobs during his teenage and adult years. First at Pak-A-Sak for about 6 years, then at Uniroyal/Michelin for 46 years until his retirement in 2019.
He was very proud of his two children, Shawn and Jennifer. He enjoyed watching his son play football and baseball for the Ardmore Tigers, as well as watching his daughter cheer and play tennis for the Tigers.
Besides being a great father and husband, Tommy was a member of the Maxwell Avenue Church of Christ and a recreational coach in the Ardmore Youth Leagues. He was a servant leader in all facets of his spiritual and daily life, proud of the accomplishments of others, not his own. His love of the outdoors never wavered. Throughout his life, Tommy was an avid hunter and fisherman. He will be greatly missed by all his outdoor companions. He also enjoyed traveling with his wife to many national parks in the United States and Canada.
Tommy treasured his family immensely and was a caregiver, mentor, counselor and friend to each of them. Survivors include: his wife, Shelley; his son, Shawn Geurin and his wife, Carmella; his daughter, Jennifer Marshall and her husband Rich; her grandchildren, Hannah Kennedy and her husband Gage; Nick Marshall and his fiancée, Kaylee Wilson; Lawrence Marshall; and Jake Geurin; and his great-grandchildren, Audrey and Beau Kennedy. The pallbearers will be Danny Wheeler, Terry Marris, Danny Groomer, Todd Davis, Tim Butler and Duane Christian. The honor bearers will be Jeff Henry, Harry Harkins, Bobby Russell and Drema Gray.
