William James “Billy” Thomas passed away peacefully Friday May 5, 2023, surrounded by his wife and loving family. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm Wednesday May 10th at Broadway United Methodist Church in the Sanctuary.

Billy was also a man of faith, and he took great pride in having a close family. He was proud of his children and grandchildren and often bragged about them.

Also surviving are his children, Tracy (Billy) Dalrymple, Keith (Elizabeth) Thomas, Craig (Cathy) Thomas; grandchildren, Alex (Sarah) Dalrymple, Bryan (Brianna) Dalrymple, Tanner, Graham, Sydney, Carly, and Gabby Thomas; five great-grandchildren, Raelynne, Rhett, Will, John, and Remi Dalrymple; sister, Ruby Dickens and many nieces and nephews.
