Tommy Franklin Gragg Jr.

Tommy Franklin Gragg, Jr., age 53, of Portland, TN, passed away Sunday, August 1, 2021 at Tri-Star E.R. in Portland.

Mr. Gragg was born on May 12, 1968 to Tommy Franklin Gragg, Sr. and Dora Dean (Horn) Gragg in Frankfurt, Germany.

Tommy Gragg aka Tommy Lee Shaw was probably best known for his singing and musical ability but he was so much more than that. Tommy was gifted in many other ways. He could do anything that he set his mind to from cooking to designing and building an amazing house. But above all, he loved his family and friends. He loved with his whole heart and there was never any doubt about how he felt. He will truly be missed.

Mr. Gragg was preceded in death by his daughter, Savanna Gragg.

Mr. Gragg is survived by his wife, Elaine Gragg of Portland; granddaughter, Haven Quinn Cooper of Portland; siblings, Tina Looney (Junior) of Whitewood, VA., Deanna Kimbrough of Whitewood, VA., Marlene Johnson of Lenior, N.C., Ike Boone (Melita) of Mt. Juliet and Karla Burton of White House, TN.

A memorial service for Mr. Gragg will be held at a later date in Virginia.
