Vernon D. Thomas, Jr.

January 30, 1971 — February 2, 2024

Nashville, TN

Vernon Dewey Thomas, Jr. age 53, passed away peacefully at home on February 2, 2024. Vernon was born in his hometown Nashville, Tennessee on January 30, 1971. 

Survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Margaret Jean (Ivey) Thomas, son, Dalton (Alexandria) Thomas, daughter, Candace (David) Clark, granddaughter, Coraline Thomas, parents, Vernon Thomas, Sr., and Tiny Thomas, sister, Beverly Payne, brother, Bryan (Jessica) Thomas and loving nieces, nephews, and cousins. 

Growing up in the countryside allowed him to develop an unwavering appreciation for the outdoors. He would often venture out into the wilderness where he loved spending his spare time hunting and fishing.

Vernon also loved working on classic trucks. It was not uncommon to find him away in his garage, restoring these automotives. His meticulous attention to detail and unwavering determination ensured that every project he embarked upon became a masterpiece.

Around two years ago he was blessed with a beautiful granddaughter who brought immense joy and fulfillment to his life. Spending time with his family and especially granddaughter Coraline was one of his greatest joys - their bond was filled with laughter, love, and cherished memories that will be forever treasured.

In his memory, in lieu of flowers, please consider donating to support the youth of East Hickman Fishing at First Farmers and Merchants bank locations.
