There will be a reception held on Friday, June 21, 2019 at 4:30 pm at the Hibachi China Buffett, 4025 Watson Blvd Ste 160, Warner Robins, GA 31093.
Thomas was born on May 12, 1955 in Camden, NJ to the late Edward Benjamin Wiswell, III and Raymah (Jones) Wiswell. He faithfully and proudly served his country in the United States Air Force, where he was a Navigator, primarily on the B-1 Bomber. Interesting enough, when he met his wife, she asked him what he did for a living and he responded, “I drop bombs”. Emma was working as a flight attendant in the Philippines when they met and let’s just say, it was love at first site. Prior to his career in the Air Force, Thomas served 3 years in the Army and worked as a deputy sheriff with Archer County Sheriff’s Office in Texas. He was very successful while serving his country, earning many commendations and awards, most notably The Air Medal, The Meritorious Service Medal and the Air Force Commendation Medal. Thomas was an avid Rush Limbaugh fan, loved eagles but his family brought him his greatest joy. He was affectionately known by his wife as “honey” and by his children and their friends as “Pops”.
Left to cherish his memory is his beloved wife, Emma Rose (Dy) Wiswell of Byron, GA; children: Lt. Col. Carlo Dy (Cristin) of Colorado Springs, CO, Rebecca Wiswell Delagarza of San Antonio, TX, Adam Wiswell of San Antonio, TX and Marco Renato Dy- Rivera (Sarah) of Burbank, CA; grandchildren: Kainoa, Ezra, Gemalyn Rose and many nieces and nephews.

A fellow "Boneman" passed the news of Tom's passing to me just a few minutes ago. You have our condolences on his passing. Tom and I worked together at Ellsworth AFB , SD in the 28th OSS. He was always a great guy to be around and he was a fine airman. I remember good times there with Tom back at Ellsworth.
Gloria and I will keep him and your family in our prayers.
Sincerely,
Scott and Gloria Dowty

From high school through Texas we shared in a lot of great times, and made many lasting memories. You'll be missed my friend. Your Air Force wings are now angel wings and I take comfort in knowing that there is one more angel in heaven. Emma, Adam, & Rebecca, just know that you're in our thoughts. Laura and I are wishing you hope as you morn and comfort in the midst of this difficult time.
