    My condolences to the family. I grew up with Tony when I visited Eagleville often with Wayne Wright. I hadn't seen him in years but even as a youth he was a hard worker, mild mannered, an example. Family, God will see you through.

    Tony was always laughing , You could feel the joy of the Lord in this man. He told me of the loss of his parents and how he and his brother was raised by his grandmother. Tony blessed everyone he came in contact with , and now stands with the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Tony always had a smile and would help anybody that needed a hand. He will truly be missed by all of his friends and co-workers at Thompson Machinery. He had a kind heart, a mild manner and a beloved soul.

    My prayers are with the family. Little did I know when I saw Tony Sunday, Feb 18th at church would be the last time. He loved the Lord, his family and friends and his church family. May God give the family peace and comfort at this time.

    Tony was a man after God's own heart. He was a kind and mild mannered man. I thank God for allowing me to get to know him. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. May God comfort the family and church family at this time.

    Family of Tony Vaughn, There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death. It is obvious from the many kind expressions that Mr. Vaughn will be sadly missed by all who knew him. I find comfort in knowing the restoration of life is guaranteed. Jesus spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), was himself resurrected by his Father and he performed many miracles. All such miraculous events, including resurrections, took place on earth giving us a precious glimpse of what is to come.......seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15) Knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed provides comfort as well. His word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4) Until his promises are fulfilled, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family in the days to come......
