Dr. Tommy Steele, Jr., 88, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 29, 2020.  Born June 20, 1932, Mr. Steele was a native of Raleigh, NC, finishing high school there in 1950. Gratitude is expressed to the schools he graduated from, and to their contribution to his life: Wheaton College; Temple Baptist Theological Seminary, a division of Tennessee Temple University; and Covington Theological Seminary, where he received the Bachelor of Arts, Master of Divinity, and Doctor of Ministry degrees, respectively. Foremost in life, has been his dear wife and wonderful helpmeet in the work of the Lord, Golda B. Steele. She has been by his side in pastoral ministry, radio ministry, and revival meetings all around the U.S. She is a delight and blessing for which praise is given to God. Praise to the Lord is also given for his lovely parents, Thomas E. Steele, Sr., and Irene R. Steele, to whom so much is owed.  Also so much  appreciated is his sister, Ellen S. Garris in growing up together and in life. Pride in and love to the precious daughters, Karen S. Hood and Jennifer S. Greeson, and their husbands Glenn Hood and David Greeson, respectively, is given with all my heart for them! Also, what a great joy the grandsons Brent and Bryan Hood, and Jonathan and Matthew Greeson have been! Then, praise and thanksgiving is expressed to the places it has been a privilege to serve as a pastoral worker: Cove City Baptist Church, Cove City, NC; Merry Oaks Baptist Church, Moncure, NC; Northside Gospel Chapel, Victoria, VA; and Siler City Chapel, Siler City, NC. Also, there were meetings all around the U.S., giving chalk talks, trumpet music, youth and radio work and ministry. To God be the glory. A celebration of Dr. Steele’s life will be held held at a later date! Online condolences may be made at In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Child Evangelism Fellowship, New Life Camp or the Gideons.
