Tommy was born December 7, 1919, in Shelbyville, Ky., to Clarence Laughlin and Hettie (Blount), who preceded him in death. He had one brother, C.B. Laughlin, who also preceded him in death.
He was an over the road truck driver with millions and millions of accident free miles. He pursued this career into his 80s. He was an independent owner operator and worked for several well-known concerns including R.L. Jeffries of Evansville. He loved watching pro-football and was an avid fisherman.

He was married in 1961 to Willa "Berniece" (Burton) and is survived by his stepdaughter, Sherry Weyl of Evansville, Ind. He was married in l997 to Ina (Hoskins) (Embry), who survives him, along with four stepchildren, Mary Pickerill of Chandler, Ind., Harvey Embry Jr. of Boonville, Ind., Marta Nelson Holt of Shoals, Ind., and Martha Freeze of Jasper, Ind. He was preceded in death by three stepchildren, Rae Meyers, Tonnie Embry and Janice Sue Embry. Nieces and nephews along with numerous grandchildren, stepgrandchildren and great-grandchildren, all who knew him lovingly as "Grandpa Tommy," also survive him.
The family would like to extend their thanks and gratitude to the dedicated staff of Southern Care Hospice and Columbia Healthcare for their services and tender care of our dad.
