Obituary of David Ronald THOMAS

THOMAS, David Ronald September 26, 1928- October 13, 2012 With deep sadness we announce the passing of our cherished Dad and Granddad, David Ronald Thomas on October 13, 2012. David spent all of his life on the land he loved, starting his farming life in Strathmore with his parents, Frank and Violet Thomas. After moving to the Langdon farm he met and fell in love with a pretty little girl, Shirley Warrack. After combining on the morning of December 1, 1951, David married Shirley and the spent a blissful 60 years together. While still farming Dad took up real estate, becoming a rural real estate agent for JonDor Realty. This gave Dad a real joy, going out and meeting so many people. David will be fondly remembered as a gentleman’s gentleman. He would always remember your name and face and would be willing to help any time he could. Dad also had a wicked sense of humour that could make you smile no matter what. David and Shirley had two loving daughters, Kathy Hochhaus (Steve) and Susan Collins (Lance); three grandsons, Kory, Travis and Kyle Collins; and granddog Roxy. He was predeceased by his wife, Shirley in 2012 and his daughter, Kathy in 2011. He will be forever remembered by his many family, friends, and acquaintances as the stylish, friendly, and always-having-a-smile gentleman. We will miss you Dad. The family would like to thank Dr. Sader of Strathmore Hospital, and Dr. Wong of the Foothills Hospital for their kind care. A Celebration of David’s life will held on Thursday, October 18 at Lord of All Lutheran Church, Strathmore at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation (1331 – 29th St. N.W., Calgary, T2N 4N2).
