George Augustus Thomas

George Thomas passed away at his Mariposa residence on Sept. 7, 2015.

He was born July 12, 1951 in Madera County and grew up in the mountain area.

George was preceded in death by his son, George Andrew “Andy” Thomas; his father, Elijah Augustus “Lige” Thomas; his mother, Mildred Louise “Micky” Montgomery; his step-father Bob “Pop” Montgomery; his brother, Billy Elijah Thomas; his half-sister Billy Jean “Sissy” Thomas; his half-sister, Janet Lee Foster; his step-mother Ettie Ruth; his niece Patricia “Patsy” Hernandez; his two step-brothers Dale and Robert Montgomery, and several aunts and uncles.

George is survived by his sisters, half-brothers and sisters, and one step-sister; Virginia “Joyce” (Thomas) Lynch and her husband Jerry Lynch; Ronald Gene Thomas, Robert Wayne Thomas, Bonnie Lee Thomas, Brenda Kay Thomas, Barbara Lynn Thomas, Joyce Ann Thomas, Betty Jo (Thomas) Finger, Patricia Louise “Patsy” Hernandez, Paula Montgomery; grandchildren Tristan Andrew Thomas and Victoria Rose. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, extended family and lifelong friends.

George loved nature. One of his favorite things to do was deep-sea fish with his brothers. He enjoyed working in the woods, both vegetable and flower gardening — he often picked the ladies in his family pretty bouquets. He enjoyed homecooked meals, music, family get-togethers, and his companion dog “Tuffy.” He loved his home and property that he shared with his mother and sister until their passing. He spent the last year of his life in the care and company of his beloved brother, Ron.

George Thomas was a giving and loving man who will be missed by many.

There will be a get-together memorial in his honor Sunday, Oct. 4 at 4 p.m. at the home of his niece and her family on MykIn leoaks Road in Mariposa.
