February 18, 1953 - November 5, 2019
On November 5, 2019, our family and community lost a great man. Tommy Boyington meant so much to so many, and the love he had for all who knew him is undying. Tommy worked as a chemical plant inspector at Mitsubishi’s Polysilicon plant in Mobile where he loved his co-workers and job, but his main mission in life was to help others. From his service in the Navy as a young man, to cooking Boston butts for fundraisers, feeding veterans and their families on Memorial Day, and hosting family pool parties, Tommy had an impact on everything he touched. He naturally brought people together. When he wasn’t volunteering, he could be found cooking up the best boiled peanuts in Baldwin County or making divinity in unspeakably large quantities. He was not afraid to work hard and his yard was his pride and joy. .He was also the most loyal patron of Goo Roos in Robertsdale, his home away from home, when he wasn’t making magic in his own kitchen while cheering on the Crimson Tide. Tommy found happiness in the little things, and though his life ended too soon, the impacts he had on his community and his family will last for generations. He was preceded in death by his parents Emory & Helen Boyington, his brothers Butch & Jimmy Boyington, and his sister Mary Geiger. He is survived by his wife, Alba Cruz-Gaitan and her children Marjorie & Randy; his children Jessica Swanson, Kyle & Bryant Boyington, and their mother Dee Dee Boyington; his grandchildren Cade & Cole Swanson and Jack & Luke Boyington; brothers Pat, Paul, and Robert Boyington; and sisters Frances Sherman, Debbie Buck, Barbara Driver, Janie Black, and Cyndy Hadley. A memorial service will be held at Mack Funeral Home in Robertsdale at 10am on Nov 8th. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the William F. Green State Veteran’s Home in Bay Minette.
