Thomas Edward Hackney, 71, of Blacksburg, VA, passed away at Joan & Howard Woltz Hospice Home in Dobson, NC on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Born January 15, 1949, he was the son of Tommie Edward and Lois Thompson Hackney. He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his loving wife of 52 years, Joyce Price Hackney; two sons and daughters-in-law, Tommie Allen (Wendy) Hackney of Williamsburg, VA, Walter Dale (Patsy) Hackney of Elliston, VA; a daughter and son-in-law, Audra Hackney (Larry) Lowe of Pilot Mountain, NC; thirteen grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; a brother and sister-in-law, Garland (Debbie) Hackney of Bynum, NC; two sisters and brothers-in-law, Lois (Frank) Murray of Moncure, NC, and Becky (Michael) Dahl of Snow Camp, NC; and many loved nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Tommie Edwards Hackney and Lois Thompson; two brothers, Gary and Michael Hackney; and beloved Aunt Ruth Dixon and Uncle Frank Dixon. Mr. Hackney was a member of Belview United Methodist Church in Radford, VA. He graduated from high school and went on to serve our country in the U.S. Army. Afterwards, he went into the construction business, where he worked until his retirement. A devoted family man, and one of strong work-ethics, he also cherished time cooking and spending with his family and friends. His presence will surely be missed.
