Tommy was born at home in 1931 to parents Robert and Mary Bellew. He was a pool shark at an age so young, he had to stand on a box to play. He went to Audubon Grade School as a boy then Barret Manual Training Center as a teenager. He found his sweetheart, Juanita, and they married in 1951 at the tender ages of 19 and 16. He provided well for his family by working at Aeroquip (formerly Kusan) Plastics where he worked until retirement in 1993. He pitched on their men's softball team and was also an excellent bowler on a men's league. He has been a member of Immanuel Baptist Temple since 1963. Before he got sick, he was still active in the Gideon Men's Sunday School Class.

Tommy was sick for over three years and didn't complain. He was very easy to care for and was loved by his caregivers. He was loving, kind, compassionate and had a great sense of humor. He was a loving Christian boss, wonderful son, husband, daddy and even better Granddaddy. When he started having Grandchildren, he babysat them while their mother and father worked. He spent a lot of time going to their ball games. They were the light of his life.
