Thomas “Tom” Allen Cheek, 63, of Greensboro, passed away October 6, 2021 at Moses Cone Hospital. A 2:00 PM Memorial Service and Celebration of Life will take place Saturday October 16, 2021 at Westminster Presbyterian Church at 3906 W. Friendly Ave. A reception will follow outside the church under the tent. The church requests that everyone wear a mask. The service will be available by livestream at www.westpreschurch.org and it will be archived on their site for future viewing. Tom is preceded in death by his parents Paul E. Cheek, Sr. and Wilda Kathleen McAllister Cheek, brother Paul E. Cheek, Jr. He is survived by his wife Virginia Allison, former wife Wendy Cheek, sister Wilda Moon (Charles), brother David Cheek (Nita), sister in-law Maribeth Graham (Duane), brother in-law William Lickel, former sister-in-law Rene Wilson, nieces Kara French (Brian) and Bailey Jillian Johnson, nephews Preston Moon (Kate), Brad Cheek and Jordan Saul, grandniece Sydney French and grandnephew Gilliam Moon and, of course, Alex the cat. All his life, Tom had a great desire to help other people. This led him to a 20-year career as a Paramedic at Forsyth and Guilford County Emergency Medical Services. When he had to retire due to an injury, he continued helping others as a computer specialist for Cone Hospital. No longer caring directly for patients, he was supporting those who did. Tom had a witty sense of humor, an infectious laugh, a great love for family and friends, and he would not have minded being a guitarist in a Rock and Roll band. For all who have asked, “How can we help”, in lieu of flowers or food, a donation to the Tom Cheek Memorial Fund at gofundme.com to help cover medical bills and final expenses would be greatly appreciated. Any remaining funds will be donated in Tom’s name to his favorite charities allowing his spirit of generosity to live on. The family would like to thank everyone for all the love and support they have received.
