Born August 3, 1930 in Curryville, Missouri, Tommy was the son of Samuel (Sam) Sisson and Naomi (Scranton) Sisson. On August 18, 1956 in St. Clement, Missouri, he was united in marriage to Eunice Mary (Geujen) who proceeded him in death in 2002.

His parents, his brother, Glen and half-brother David and half-sister Josephine preceded Tommy in death. Tommy lived most of his adult life in Bowling Green, Missouri. He was a member of the United States Marine Corp and served in the Korean War. After his service he returned to Missouri and was employed at Valley Steel in Louisiana, Missouri. He then joined the Missouri Highway and Transportation Department in Bowling Green and retired in 1990 after 29 years of service. Upon the death of his wife in 2002, Tommy moved to Kirksville, Missouri and lived with his daughter and family. He very much enjoyed collecting coins and old International Farmall Cub tractors. In 2007 Tommy moved with the family to Virginia where he often said he enjoyed the more seasonable weather and sunshine of the Shenandoah Valley. Tommy was able to live with his family and watch his granddaughters grow up which was a joy to him.
