Richard D. Thomas
Died: July 21, 2018
Richard D. Thomas, 83, of Greenwood, passed away Saturday July 21, 2018 surrounded by his family.
Richard was born August 8, 1934, a son of the late Harry and Vera (Gatliff) Thomas. He proudly retired after 35 years with Indiana Bell. He was happiest by the water, spending many years water skiing, boating and fishing. He loved to spend his winter months on Sanibel Island and his summers on the Lake. He could always put a smile on your face whether it was performing his infamous “pier roll’ or spinning women around on the dance floor to the jitterbug.
Survivors include Lorine Ward, companion of 13 years; a daughter Leanna (Dan) Hess; a son Chad (Sally) Thomas, a sister Marilyn (George) Zimmermann; grandchildren Shannon (Arnold) Watson, Amanda (Stefan) Medeiros, Danielle (Jason) Ewing, Sara (Jason) Martin, Megan Thomas, Erin Thomas and Nicole Thomas; great grandchildren Noah McClintock, Jackson McClintock, Henry Ewing and Eloise Ewing; and nine nieces and nephews. Richard was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years Patricia Thomas, his parents, a son Rick K. Thomas, and a nephew Jeff Zimmermann.
Family and friends will gather Wednesday July 25, 2018 for visitation from 3p-6p at Simplicity Funeral Care, 125 W. Sycamore St., Zionsville, IN 46077. Burial will take place at a later date.
