May 16, 1929 - November 29, 2020
Tommy Felix Rayburn, 91, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, November 29, 2020. Visitation will be held Saturday, December 5, at Chancellor Funeral Home in Byram at 10:00 followed by a Celebration of Life service at 11:00. Interment will follow at Lakewood Memorial Park. Due to the current pandemic, a limited number of people will be allowed in the funeral home at one time and masks are required. Brother Rayburn was a graduate of Meridian High School, Meridian Junior College, Bob Jones University, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Following seminary, he pastored churches in Mississippi: Immanuel, Vicksburg; Calvary, Jackson as associate pastor; Second Avenue, Laurel; First Baptist, Booneville; First Baptist, Florence; and Calvary, Canton. He loved preaching God’s Word, even through his 90th year. He was a powerful example of God’s love, not only to his family, but to all who knew him during his 65 years of ministry. He enjoyed music, photography, reading, and was a “gadget guru.” He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Lois Steed Rayburn; parents, Merida Felix Rayburn and Grace Evelyn Boggs Rayburn of Meridian, Mississippi, and son-in-law Lanny Robinson. He is survived by Daughters Susan Robinson of Raymond, Ann (Tim) LeVan of Maineville, OH, and Melanie (Walter) Plummer of Raymond; Grandchildren Leigh (Charlie) Lucroy of Green Cove Springs, FL, Tom (Jenny) LeVan of Charlottesville, VA, and Stewart LeVan of Maineville, OH, Heather (Patrick) Mooneyham of Wichita Falls, TX, and Allison Plummer of Birmingham, AL; Step-Grandchildren Ben (Alison) Robinson of Clinton, and Abby (Vic) Bennett of Marietta, GA; Great-Grandchildren William Guy and Robert Lucroy, and Step-Great-Grandchildren Gabe Lucroy, Alex Robinson, and Bella Bennett. The local Church was the heartbeat of his ministry. Gifts may be given to your local church in his memory.
