Thomas was a proud WWII veteran of the Army Air Corp. During his life he earned a degree in Airline Mechanics from Wentworth Institute and worked as a Construction Supervisor for The Lauring Construction Company, Inc., contributing to the building of many commercial structures in the Worcester area. His favorite pastime was golfing with friends and family, most often at Juniper Hills in Northborough. He most enjoyed spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren and extended family. He also enjoyed adventures in travel, poker, trips to the casino, bowling, playing horseshoes, and riding the waves at the beach. Thomas liked going to Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox play.
