Thomas was a member of the IBEW Local 86 for 64 years. He was the rock on which our family was built. He found lasting joy in his family. He was always there to lend a hand, a ride or sometimes just an ear to listen. He had a beautiful smile and wonderful laugh and never met a stranger. On this day, what would have been his 85th birthday weekend, we would like to remember him how he always was, smiling and happy, spending time with family and sitting outside listening to the birds. We know your days are now filled with their song and you are at peace. We are grateful for all the years we had and the time spent. We will miss you greatly and your beautiful smiling face.
~ I am now at peace forever, safely home in heaven at last ~
A celebration of life will be held at a later date due to COVID.
