MISSOULA – “All who wander are not lost.” This statement couldn’t have been truer for Thomas whom we affectionately called Tumbleweed. Thomas loved the ocean where he would cast away the worries of life. Having been in all 50 states, Thomas can finally rest his tired feet. In the early morning hours of Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016, Thomas found peace and contentment that for so long eluded him. Thomas was born Feb. 6, 1951, in Maryland. Thomas enlisted in the United States Army, was stationed in Vietnam and received several medals. With no known family, Thomas quickly became part of our family, sharing holidays, a wedding and the birth of children. Thomas is survived by his adoptive family, Kevin and Joan Parks; Jed and Kara Nelson and family; Robb and Lisa Sleeper and family; Shannon and Linda Hicks and family; Walt Reiner. We would like to thank Dr. Rebecca Anderson and the staff at St. Patrick Hospital 4 South for taking such good care of Thomas. Also, a very special thanks to those at the Sleepy Inn Motel and the Thunderbird Motel for the love and kindness shown toward Thomas all those times he needed a place to stay while in Missoula. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or a charity of your choice. Graveside services will be Friday, Sept. 30, at 3 p.m. at the Western Montana State Veterans Cemetery.
