George Edward Thomas was born Sept. 4, 1943, in Davis, to the late John E. and Ruby Clarette (Cottrell) Thomas. He died Sunday, Nov. 6, 2022, in Sulphur, at the age of 79. George and the former Ms. Barbara Ann Gordon were married on July 21, 1962, in Davis.
George grew up in Davis, where he attended school. After he and Barbara married, they moved to Fort Worth, Texas, where he spent 20 years working in the roofing industry. In 1982, they returned to Davis where he spent the rest of his life working as a pumper in the oil field. George was very much an outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting and fishing. He loved spending time at “Dave’s Cabin” west of Davis, relaxing and observing nature at its finest. George was an avid fan of Davis Wolves football. He made sure each day started with visiting the local coffee shops to visit with friends and stay up to date with the local happenings.
