Thomas had an outgoing and fun-loving personality whose charm touched the hearts of many. He was upbeat and kept you laughing.He had a unique laugh and many funny stories. Thomas was very gifted in art design and he enjoyed working on cars. He was very intelligent and had a love for politics. I'm sure if he had run for may or he would have won.
