Sandra ClarkBlount, Obits

The owner of McCammon-Ammons-Click Funeral Home Inc. in Maryville, Tennessee, has died.

Thomas Bryant Click, 89, died Wednesday, March 6, 2024, at Morningview Assisted Living. He was a member of Maryville First United Methodist Church and a longtime member of Maryville Kiwanis Club. He was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, Helen R. Click.

The funeral home has been family-owned since its founding in 1906. Mr. Click joined in 1956 as an embalmer and funeral director.

Sam H. McCammon and Roy E. Ammons, both Blount County natives, formed the partnership McCammon-Ammons after starting their careers at different undertaking companies, both associated with furniture stores. They moved to the present location and remained active until the death of Mr. Ammons in 1961 and Mr. McCammon’s retirement in 1971 and his death in 1976. A detailed history is here.

Mr. Click purchased the 50% interest of Mr. Ammons in 1965 and the remaining stock of Mr. McCammon in 1971. His brother, Jim Click, came from the Click Funeral Home in Lenoir City and joined Tom. While the businesses are independent, they are the same family that owned and operated funeral homes in Lenoir City and Farragut.

Survivors include his children, Michael “Moe” and Suzanne Click, Katherine and Donnie Poteet and their families. The full obituary is here.

Friends may pay their respects and sign the guest register today (3/11/24) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at McCammon-Ammons-Click Funeral Home. Family and friends will meet 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Grandview Cemetery Pavilion for a graveside service with the Rev. Ronald Longmire officiating.
