Tribute in Memory of: David Thomas

David Thomas
David Thomas

For a loving Father, Husband and Friend who will be missed my many. He lost his wife to cancer, and battled his own bouts with breast cancer and prostate cancer with strength and courage.

Personal Story

Dad, you were a strong man. I will always miss and admire you strength and drive. I am so proud of how hard you worked at everything you did, and how successful you have been, especially in these last years, at developing successful businesses. I am equally proud in the way you took care of my mother in her final years and the good husband you were to your new wife.

My father worked in the oil field, owned a cathodic protection business, worked in contracting and construction. He learned how to fly and digital photography and build his own aerial photography business. He was passionate for hunting and developed a hunting guide business in Mexico. He was able to go to safari in Africa twice hunting elephant, but hunted even more extensively with his camera. In his retirement years he gave shooting and concealed carry classes at the firing range he developed and ran on his own property. People either loved or hated my father, but I must say he was always true to himself and followed his dreams prodigiously. I will miss him forever.
