Thomas J. ” Cuz” Nall • February 26, 2019

Thomas J. “Cuz” Nall, 79 of Pensacola, Florida passed away on February 26, 2019.

“Mr. Tom” was a long term member of Ensley Church of the Nazarene. Tom loved The Lord with all his heart and he loved his Church and his Church Family. You can be assured, if you knew Mr Tom, you were being prayed for. Tom was a Church Greeter and was always at Church early, as he didn’t want to miss any hugs, handshakes or smiles that came in the doors. Tom loved unconditionally. He didn’t have a harsh word for anyone. His life was a true reflection of Christian Love. Tom was always so thankful for the many Blessings in his life. If you were greeted by Tom, you were told you were loved at least once a day, but sometimes repeatedly. He never missed an opportunity to share The Lord with anyone that he came across and that included strangers. His “Joy” was contagious and his smile infectious. The lives he affected is immeasurable, although we are more than sure, God kept up.
Tom was an encouragement to those around him. He will surely be missed.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Lily Nall; sister, Jeanette Durkey (Bill-deceased); brother, Marcus Nall (Ann-deceased).

Tom is survived by his wife, Ethel Nall, who was the love of his life, his sweetheart, his best friend, his “Angel”; three sons, Thomas Nall (Tracie), Wesley Nall (Dagmare), James Elliott (Kathy); one daughter, Pamela Hammontree (Jack); sister, Janice Barnett (Charlie-deceased ). Thomas was also affectionally known as Paw Paw by his 10 grandchildren and his 9 great-grandchildren. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews. “Cuz” leaves behind all his buddies from Armstrong World Industries that were like family to him. Tom leaves more precious friends that can never be counted.

A visitation will be held at Ensley Church of the Nazarene on Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 5pm until 7pm and on Friday, March 1, 2019 from 10AM until the service begins at 11AM. Pallbearers will be his grandsons. Honorary Pallbearers will be his ENC Bible Study Group.

  2. Jan Georgis says:

    I will really miss Tom. May GOD surround you with HIS Love, during this sorrowful time.

  3. Tim & Teri Merritt says:

    It is with a heavy heart we say “so long”…only for a little while.

  4. Thomas (Gid) Nall says:

    I want to thank my wife Tracie and our daughter Katarina, for the heartfelt love and support, my amazing second mom Ethel, my brothers Wesley and Jimmy and our remarkable sister Pam, for many reasons but especially
    because you guys loved Dad through the storm. He loved each of you dearly.
    And to all the other family and friends, especially my Aunt Janice who has recently said “farewell for now” to my dear Uncle Charlie, I salute you.
    My Dad never met a stranger or carried a grudge. He was sweet, thoughtful, very simple and very kind. Sometimes ornery or incredibly funny, but always a true southern gentleman, without prejudice. He has left behind a treasure of memories and I really don’t know what to expect from life now that he has departed.
    All I can say is I am filled with gratitude for having known him as a father and close friend. I know that’s a rarity now a days. I thank our Great God that I was able to hold his hand when he left. We shall meet again Dad. I love you.

  5. Danita Knupp says:

    Ethel and Family…Ray and Danita send our deepest sympathy for your loss. Tom was always a true friend and always had a smile on his face. We will miss him. You are in our thoughts and prayers

  6. Jackie Somerset Marcum says:

    Tommy was my brother-in-law when I was very young and was one of the sweetest people I’ve known. His sons are very special to me and always have been. I’m so sorry for the loss. God bless y’all! Love y’all!

  7. Pamela D Hammontree says:

    Thank you Dad, for making me a “Step”. That is a word most folks do not like to use. Well I started out your “Step” daughter, but as time went by, you moved the “Step” out of the way and I became a very loved daughter, who loved you with all of her heart. Words can not begin to describe how fortunate I am , that you chose to love me as your very own. You gave the word “Step” a brand new meaning. I watched you pray for me, when I didn’t think I needed prayers. You knew better and those prayers drew me many “Steps” closer to you and many steps closer to “Christ”. Your love brought me one “Step” closer to Love and how to understand what it really was supposed to be like in a family. Your love was unconditional and unmeasurable. Watching you pay your tithes each week before you even looked at the bills, brought me one “Step” closer to understanding that God was a much better money manager, than any of us could ever be. As most people think being a “Step” child to someone is a bad thing, or a negative thing, I hope the legacy you leave behind with how you loved me, teaches those that watched, that the word “Step” has many meanings, and it had no bearing on my position in your heart and life, but it had more of a bearing on all the Steps I took in life, because of your love, prayers support and influence. My only wish, is that I had not had to let go and watch you take that final “Step” into Christ’ arms, but Dad, you earned it, you deserve it and I will always be Thankful for sharing my life with you and having you as “My Dad!:

    We just found out today about Mr.Nall passing and it broke our hearts. Mr.Nall was a long time client of Gulf Coast Institute of Career Development where Mrs. Nall would bring him in regularly for his pedicures. He always had a smile for the girls, told stories about growing up in the area, and loved telling us all about his love for the Lord. He always had kind words for us, invited us all to visit his church any time, and he always left us with his prayers. Mr. Nall will be greatly missed!! Heaven has gained a very special angel!
