Thomas Popplewell, of Russell Springs, passed away at Vanderbilt Medical Center, in Tennessee, on Tuesday, November 9, 2021. He was 75 years of age.
He was a welder for over 43 years, initially working at Learsiegler and then for Tarter Gate Company for 35 years.

In addition to his parents, Tommy was preceded in death by four brothers, Marlus Popplewell, Willard Popplewell, and Paul Popplewell; and a sister, Nadean Wilson.
Funeral services will be held at 1pmCT Friday, November 12, 2021, at Bernard Funeral Home, with Bro. Bobby Conner officiating. Burial will follow in the Holt Cemetery.
