July 18, 1938 - September 4, 2015
GRAYSON, Thomas (Wayne) Age 77, of Gallatin passed away peacefully Friday, September 4th, 2015. Wayne was born to Madge and Leslie Grayson at their home in Adairville, Kentucky on July 18th, 1938. He grew up with two wonderful older sisters, Helen (1926-2015) and Mabel (1928- ) who adored their younger brother. At around 3 years old, little Wayne developed a passion for fishing and it endured for the rest of his life. Wayne's many loyal friends can attest that many fish have given their lives to pose with Wayne in a photograph or fill his belly. In 1963, he met the love of his life, Helen Ann Bryant, and they were soon married. A son was born, Leslie (Keith) Grayson, in 1964, and he became a proud father. Around 1968, he achieved an important goal in his life and became a Metro Nashville Firefighter. Wayne and Helen's marriage lasted until her passing on December 28, 1981 but the sadness of her leaving was not in vain as Wayne and his son grew closer and closer with each passing year. His skills as a father never waned beyond that day in 1981. When he passed, there were no better fathers on this earth. Wayne Grayson will be greatly missed and forever loved by his son and lovely wife, Teresa Grayson, his wonderful sister, Mabel Winters, his grandson whom he was so proud of, Jonas Grayson, his lovely granddaughter, Lindsey Helm and her husband, Billy, his great granddaughter, Olivia, and great grandson, Jackson. His girlfriend, Teresa Jones, spent his last years with him and her presence with him was invaluable. I love you, Dad, and cannot wait to get to heaven so we can finish our last conversation wetting a line on the lake under a shade tree. I bet the bass grow really big up there. Visitation will be at Phillips-Robinson Funeral Home, 2707 Gallatin Rd. on Friday, Sept. 11 from 4-8pm. The service will be held in our chapel on Saturday, Sept. 12 at 11am. Interment will be at Rose Hill Memorial Gardens in Tullahoma, TN at 1:30pm. PHILLIPS-ROBINSON FUNERAL HOME, (615)262-3312.
