Gerald Wayne Bomar, age 82, entered into the presence of our Lord and Saviour on January 2, 2023, at his home, surrounded by his loving Family, after a brief illness. He was born May 19, 1940, in, and was a lifelong resident of, Munford, TN. He attended Munford Schools and was a graduate of Munford High School Class of 1958, where he received the Outstanding Industrial Arts Student Award. He met his wife of 61 years, Patsy, in High School and they were married on August 11, 1961. He was a loving Grandfather, "Papa" to his grandchildren, always there to lend support and never missing a recital, cheer competition, choir concerts, graduation or family holidays. An avid supporter of Munford High School Athletics, Gerald Wayne regularly attended Cougar games. He was a talented wood craftsman, farmer, and extremely competitive tractor pull enthusiast. He was generous and shared his many and various talents. Humble, soft spoken and a gentleman of few words, his sense of fairness left positive impressions on high school classmates, Family, friends and coworkers alike.
