Mr. Tommy Smothers (born February 2nd, 1937 as "Thomas Bolyn Smothers III") died peacefully in his palatial home on January 16th, 2022 (TBV) with his children at his side. His cause of death was presumed to be natural causes. He was rather old at 84 years old when he passed.
Thomas is survived by his loving wife Marcy Carriker Smothers, his children, sons Thomas Smothers IV, Bo Smothers and Riley Rose Smothers, his siblings, brother Dick Smothers and sister Sherry Smothers as well as his pet muskrat, Chuck.
Thomas is predeceased by his parents, Ruth Smothers and Thomas B. Smothers.
Thomas was a well known Comedian who was best known for being half of the comedy/music duo "The Smothers Brothers" with his brother, Dick Smothers.
When he was not working as a Comedian, Thomas was known for his love of playing bocce and he would spend most Sundays practicing and waxing his balls. Mr. Smothers (also known as The Tomster) also spent days visiting with his sons most months when he was able to spare a couple seconds. Ever since he was a boy in New York, many remember Thomas as a bit of a jerk with funny magic tricks that entertained everyone who would watch. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a small donation to the Heart Foundation in honor of Thomas's.
A funeral is to be scheduled for Sunday the 9th at the funeral home in his home town. The service will commence at 10AM with a reception to follow hosted by his pastor at the cemetery where refreshments will be served. Guest and fans are welcome to the visitation to be held at funeral home.
"There's a general dumbing down of everybody in this country . . . It just kept going and going until it's gotten to the point where it's all mean-spirited and vulgar. It not only affects comedy, it affects film."
"It's a mistake not to give people a chance to learn to depend on themselves while they are not totally dead yet."
"I guess if I had to pick a spiritual figurehead to possess the deed to the entirety of Earth, I'd go with Buddha, but only because he wouldn't want it. Sarah Vowell, Unfamiliar Fishes"
Is Thomas Smothers still alive? According to our unconfirmed records, he has not passed away.
Carl: I always loved the way he and his brother, Dick would banter when they would appear on TV. Good harmless fun.
Anita Keeler: From what I saw on the internet yesterday, Tom Smothers died yesterday, not today. The Smothers Brothers were my favorite comedic duo.
