Thomas Truex Obituary, Death – Thomas Truex, who served as mayor of Davie at one time, passed away recently, and the community of Davie is grieved by the news of his passing. In the 1980s, Mr. Truex relocated his family to Davie, and almost immediately afterward, he developed a profound affection for the local neighborhood. In the years that followed, he was able to devote his time and attention to raising his four kids in Davie. Mr. Truex was an attorney for more than three decades, and the majority of that time he spent serving as the managing partner of his own legal firm. His career spanned more than three decades in all.
In March of 2001, as a result of his unwavering commitment to the well-being of the people in his immediate environment, he was chosen to serve as the Davie Town Councilmember for District 2. Mr. Truex served as Mayor for a total of two terms, beginning in 2003 and ending in 2009. These years span the years 2003–2009. He got his most recent job as a history teacher at Western High School because he has always had a strong desire to share what he has learned with other people.
During the most recent Town Hall closeout ceremony, which took place in June 2022 and was hosted by the Town, Mr. Truex gave some thought to the time he spent serving as a Town representative and how much he enjoyed making a difference in the community. The occasion was held at the building that formerly served as the Town Hall. According to Mayor Judy Paul, the loss that will be caused by Tom’s departure will be significant throughout the community. “We owe him a great deal of gratitude for the many years of devotion that he has rendered to Davie.
He was a pillar of the community and a devoted provider to his family all at the same time. I would want to take this opportunity to offer my condolences to his family and to ask for prayers and other expressions of remembering to help comfort them as they go through this difficult time. Thank you for your consideration. In his honor, from Thursday, December 1, 2022 through Saturday, December 3, 2022, the height of all of the flags flown by the Town will be lowered to a level that is equivalent to half of what it would normally be.
