Tom Brissey Greenville SC Obituary, Tom Brissey has passed away
Tom Brissey Obituary, Death – On November 19, 2022, George Thomas Brissey, Sr. conceded defeat to death after a long and courageous struggle. Both of his parents, George P. and Annie May Stewart Brissey, had passed away prior to the birth of their son, thus he was named after his late mother. Those who are left behind following his death include his wife of seventy years, Jane Graves Brissey, his daughter Jan Jones (rick), six granddaughters, and eleven great-grandchildren. His wife was married to him for a total of seventy years. George Thomas Brissey Jr., Robert Brian Brissey, and Steve Graves Brissey were his three kids who all perished away before him.
Tom was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina, and he attended Greenville High School, where he graduated with his high school diploma. After he finished his career as a sheriff’s deputy in Greenville, South Carolina, he joined the Navy reserves to continue his public service. The members of Tom’s family used the title “Pop” to refer to him as an affectionate nickname. His passions included historical research, artifact and document collection, and archival organization. The fact that he was a contributing member of the Greenville Native Group led to the endearing moniker of “Mr. Greenville” being given to him by his peers in the Greenville Native Group. There will be a ceremony that is exclusive to the family and will be held in private.
Thank you for everyone’s love and support for our grandfather. He loved this support network of SC Natives and he loved Greenville. Tom Brissey passed away on Nov 19th, 2022 after a brief battle with cancer. We are thankful for all the wonderful years with him and for all the wonderful friends he made through Greenville SC Natives. Apologies for the delayed post as we were concentrating on contacting family and making arrangements. Your cards and posts were made into a book for him by my sister and brother-in-law and believe me they all brought him so much happiness. Your prayers brought him mercy and peace. Thank you! Kelly and family
