Later in life, Thomas formed a deep and lasting relationship with Micheline Moore. Thomas had made his profession of faith in Christ and attended Hillcrest Baptist Church where he served as a trustee. He loved the Lord and had a deep abiding faith. He enjoyed flying hand built airplanes and treasured his pilot’s license. Thomas faithfully attended Oshkosh every year. He was working on a Piper Cub but wasn’t able to complete it. His family was very dear to him and he especially enjoyed having time with his grandchildren. Thomas was a loving son, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and was a caring friend.
