Obituary for Louis P. Thomas

January 6, 1947 - May 6, 2017
Willow Grove, Pennsylvania | Age 70


Louis P., of Willow Grove, passed away on May 6th, 2017 at the age of 70. Louis was born to the late Albert and Julia Thomas on January 6, 1947. Louis was raised in the Christian Faith, and continued throughout his life. He was educated in the Philadelphia School System, graduating from Thomas Edison High in 1965. After working at the Philadelphia Airport, Midvale Heppenstall Metal Company, and Penn Fruit Industries, he eventually joined Temple University Hospital, where he stayed for 38 years retiring in 2012. He was the third oldest of 12 children: James, Gladys, Deborah, Geraldine, Stephanie, Nathaniel, William, and was preceded in death by Esther, Albert Jr., Madeleine and George. He was the loving husband of Donna (nee Laguins). They were married in 1977, and had their daughter Leslie Thomas in June of 1980. Louis also leaves behind his Aunt Eva Montgomery of Philadelphia, two brothers-in-law, four sisters-in-law, many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Louis had several loves, his greatest being traveling, cars, and time with his family and friends. Louis never turned down an opportunity to visit someplace new, was guaranteed to annually attend the Philadelphia car show, and rarely missed an occasion to gather with his family and friends; especially his Temple boys on Thursday Nights.
