Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Thomas Clark Llewellyn, 65, of Salisbury, passed away Thursday, January 21, 2021 at his home.
He was born September 8, 1955 in Salisbury, NC to the late Thomas Llewellyn and Helen Bostian Llewellyn. He graduated from Salisbury High School and was the owner of Starship Engineering for 43 years. He was a master Engineer in the top performance motorcycle industry as well as the Indy Car Racing League. He was known as being a hardworker, never missing a day of work until his health started to decline due to Parkinsons and Alzheimers. He loved to go deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. What brought him his greatest joy was being a Paw Paw to his two grandchildren and loving his fur baby, Lilly Belle.
In addition to his parents, Thomas was preceded in death by his grandparents, Frank Llewellyn and Alma Llewellyn Prentiss; Crawford and Ruth Bostian; sister, Terri Llewellyn and brother, Michael Lee Llewellyn.
Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 44 years, Danna Ward Llewellyn; daughters, Tabitha Myers (Michael) of Salisbury; Tiffany Barringer (Michael) of Mocksville; son, Thomas Dax Llewellyn of Salisbury; granddaughters, Emma Kate Myers and Addisyn Reagan Myers; sisters, Elizabeth “Betsy” Mitchell (David) of Panama City, FL; and life long friend, Amy Hess of Salisbury.
