Gregory W. Thomas

August 25, 1947 ~ June 28, 2019 (age 71)


Gregory W. Thomas of West Chester.

Gregory W. Thomas, 71 of West Chester, PA died Friday June 28, 2019 at the Paoli Hospital in Paoli.

He was the husband of Dorothy (Albert) Thomas.

Born August 25, 1947 in Baltimore, MD he was the son of the late Harry E. Thomas and the late Genevieve Kelly Thomas.

Greg worked as a Computer Disaster Recovery Specialist for SEI Investments. In his earlier years he enjoyed spending time outdoors, taking family trips to Split Rock and the Cayman Islands where he would scuba dive and snorkel.  Greg had an artistic flair which was exhibited in many forms such as the elaborate sand sculptures he would build to entertain the children on vacations to Rehoboth Beach.

Greg was always so full life, with a smile that could brighten anyone’s day and a sense of humor that could cut through the gloom of even the worst days. His undaunted optimism and joviality have touched many lives during his time upon this earth. May he always be remembered fondly in the hearts of those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

He is survived by his wife, Dorothy Thomas and son, Christopher Thomas.
