Obituary of Michael Odis Thomas
Michael O. Thomas, 64, of Dallas, Texas passed away in Hamilton Park (Dallas) Texas and was carried to his permanent home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on January 6, 2021. He was born August 2, 1956 to Theodies Thomas and Libby (Powers) Thomas in Dallas, Texas. He was the first child born to this union. Michael was a beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. He was an avid reader and always had a book in his hand. At an early age, he became a collector of comic books. By the time he finished middle school, he had an extensive anthology of various super heroes in his library. He graduated from Richardson High School (Class of ’73) and continued on to earn degree awards from Richland College (Associate in Arts and Sciences) and El Centro College (Associate in Occupational Therapy). His two professional careers of choice were construction and later the medical/patient care field. He also enjoyed playing dominoes, motorcycle riding and rooting for the Dallas Cowboys. Michael was loved and will be greatly missed. He accepted Christ early in life and was baptized at Layman Chapel C.M.E. Church under the pastorage of the late, Reverend W. M. McGruder. Realizing our Heavenly Father’s perfect peace and love, we are comforted by his faith knowing he is in the arms of God forevermore.
