Terry Lee Thomas

Terry Lee Thomas, 58, of Logan, WV went to his heavenly home on Friday, January 7th, 2022.

He was born on June 12th, 1963, to the late Adolph Lomely, Sr., and Josephine Thomas Swanner.

Terry was a class of 1981 graduate of Logan High School. He obtained his first job at the age of 18 years and continued to be a loyal employee to several businesses for over thirty years. In 2011, due to declining health, he became disabled.

Terry was a member of the 20 Whitman Community Church and was very proud to sing in their choir. He was an avid NASCAR fan and enjoyed many road trips with his wife, April to watch the races live. Terry truly had a heart of gold and loved his family fiercely. He was loved by all of his family, especially his sisters who spoiled him immensely. He was also a gifted poet and shared his beautiful writings with his family and friends.

Terry was preceded in death by three loving sisters, Betty McClellan, Rosa Costello, and Isavel Lomely; three loving brothers, Raymond Lomely, Rudolph Lomely, and Adolph Lomely, Jr., and his beautiful niece, Tracy Renee Ross.

Those left behind to cherish his memory includes his wife, April (Mathis) Thomas; his sisters, Janice (Butch) Borth of Valley View, Karen (Danny) Hatfield of Gilbert, Lois (Roger) Nelson of Micco, Teresa Lynn Thomas of Switzer, Nina (Johnny) Martin of Marion, IN, and Josephine Mobech of Columbus, OH; one brother, Joseph Lomely of IN; his father-in-law, George (Tammie) Mathis of Peach Creek; his brother-in-law, Corey (Kayla) Mathis of Whitman, and a special nephew and life-long best friend, Joe (Tara) Spears of Coral Springs, FL. In addition, he leaves behind a host of nieces and nephews that Terry referred to as his “baby girls and bubs,” his fur baby, Princess, that was always by his side, and so many special friends that would be too great to list individually.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 pm Wednesday, January 12th, 2022 at 20 Whitman Community Church with Pastor Joaquin Ooten officiating. A visitation will be held a hour prior to the funeral service starting at 1:00 pm. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Pecks Mill, WV, immediately following the funeral service.

Serving as pallbearers will include Johnathan Spence, Todd Nunley, Tony Lee Ross, Joe Spears, Eric Porter, and Jamie McGraw. Honorary pallbearers will include Butch Borth, Danny Hatfield, Roger Nelson, Corey Mathis, and Ryan Lockhart.

A dinner will be hosted for the family by the 20 Whitman Community Church in the fellowship hall immediately following the service.

Due to COVID-19, the family kindly requests that masks be worn.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Collins Funeral Home Inc. of Switzer, WV.

Terry will be miss. Even though we don't understand why our loved ones have to leave we don't have to wonder where He is, Just imagine the joy he is having right now walking on Streets of Pure Gold hand in hand with Loved one already there and the sights. He could make you smile when he walked into the room.
