Tommy Ray Garner, 60, passed away at High Point Medical Center on October 23, 2023 surrounded by his loved ones. He was born in Randolph County, NC on September 4, 1963 to Raymond Ernest Garner and Doris Wilson Garner.

Tommy was a 1982 graduate of Randleman High School. Following school, he worked for Murrows Transfer of High Point for 34 years and was Owner/Operator of T&A Transportation.

He loved traveling with his family and spending time with the ones he loved. Tommy was always joking or cutting up with those around him. He was lovingly known as “Porkchop” to his other truck driving buddies.
