Mr. Leroy Thomas age 78 of Tracy City passed away quietly at his home Sunday, February 10, 2019. Leroy was a well-respected carpenter as well as a brick and stone mason during his working career. Besides being a master craftsman, Leroy tinkered with anything that was broken. In this area he was a Jack-of-all trades.
Leroy was preceded in death by his parents, Esther Elizabeth and Roy Hilman Thomas; siblings, Willie Mae Thomas Geary, Lucretia Thomas Crabtree and Kenneth, Pee Wee, (Margaret Anne) Thomas.
He will be fondly remembered by his family and friends for his funny stories and sharp wit. However, those who knew him best will remember him as a child of God who dedicated his life to the Lord and has now gone home to meet his heavenly Father.
Survivors include his loving wife of almost 54 years, Margaret Dunwoody Thomas, daughter, Tammy Thomas Cooley. His grandchildren include Kaitlyn Evans Witzel (Allen) of Rossville,GA and Lee Evans of Tracy City. Leroy has two great-grandchildren, Sabrina and Preston and his sidekick, Lady the dog.
