Frederick W. Thomas Jr., 85, passed away peacefully at his home Sat. Oct. 11, 2014. He was predeceased by his wife Frances and grandson Freddie. He is survived by his children Sue Sacco, Fred Thomas, Beth (Todd) Bieber, James Thomas, Betsy (Lauri) Thomas and his loving grandchildren Shane (Jenna), Satya, Brianna, Marnee, Will, Jimmy, and Garrett. Fred valued Jesus, his family, patriotism, trains, planes, and time spent with his grandkids. His love of planes began with building models at a young age, buying a plane at age 16, working and flying with Ed Link, serving in the Air Force, and making planes the rest of his life. Fred was the kindest, sweetest, most gentle soul. He will be greatly missed. Our loss is God's gain. A Memorial Service will be held at Unitarian Church 183 Riverside Dr. on Sat. Oct. 18, 2014 at 3pm.
