Obituary

Thomas Stuart Balsley died on June 28, 2022 at his home.  He was 52 years old.  He was the son of Tom and Martha Balsley of Reidsville and the loving father of Mary Stuart Balsley.  He grew up in Reidsville and attended Reidsville schools before graduating from TMI Academy in Sweetwater, Tennessee. He had challenges with substance abuse but confronted them and was proud to be clean and sober for the past eight years.  He said no amount of money could measure up to his gratitude for his sobriety. Stuart belonged to St. Thomas Episcopal Church where he was an acolyte and a member of the youth group during his high school years.  He was very serious about his faith, taking time for daily devotions and Bible reading. He was employed by Speedline Manufacturing Corporation and felt fortunate to work with people he respected greatly at a job he enjoyed.  Aside from work, Stuart was an avid golfer.  Golf was one of his greatest pleasures in life.  In addition to his love for the game, he treasured his time spent with friends on our local golf courses.  He was also an avid St. Louis Cardinal and UVA Cavalier fan.  He rarely missed an opportunity to see these teams compete. One of Stuart’s biggest accomplishments was raising his daughter as a single parent for the past six years.  They had a special bond.  Stuart was proud of her and we were all pleased that he was present at her graduation from Reidsville High School. Stuart was predeceased by his brother Burton.  He is survived by his daughter and parents. Memorials may be sent to Fellowship Hall, 5140 Dunstan Rd. Greensboro, NC 27405 or St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 315 Lindsey St. Reidsville, NC 27320. A memorial service will be conducted at 11:00 A.M. Saturday, July 2, 2022 at St. Thomas Episcopal Church.  Inurnment will be in the church columbarium following the service.  The family will receive friends in the Pipkin Parlor immediately following the service and, at other times, at the home.
