Obituary for Phillip Scott Thomas Sr.

Phillip Scott  Thomas Sr.
Deacon Phillip S. Thomas Sr. was born December 9, 1965 in Toledo, Ohio to Willa Lee and William Edward Thomas Sr. Phillip, also known as Phil, graduated from Calvin M. Woodward High School starring as an All City performer in football and an All City, All District, and All State performer in track. Phillip would later join the United States Navy and travel to ports around the world; while stationed in Norfolk, Virginia and Great Lakes, Illinois.
Phillip was currently employed with Joshua Treatment Center of Lima UMADAOP as a Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant (CDCA). Previously, Phillip worked as a laborer through Laborers International Union of North America Local No. 500 and manned various projects as a steward and foreman. After working for various contractors through Laborers Local 500, Phillip was forced to retire early from the Union because of an injury sustained in 2003.
Phillip had a love for his family, detailing cars, fine cigars, and watching and attending the games of his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. He had most recently attended a game in Pittsburgh on Sunday, October 8; against the Jacksonville Jaguars who, by the way, beat the Steelers 30 – 9. However, Phillip would be glad to know that the Steelers won on Sunday night; defeating the Green Bay Packers 31 -28 and now have a record of 9 – 2.
Phillip was also very much a local fashion icon and trend setter; whether he was washing his car or heading to church, you better believe the top, bottoms, and shoes were going to be uniquely and exquisitely coordinated. He was a man that took great pride in his self-awareness with regard to his surroundings and exhibited great respect and loyalty for those around him professionally and personally.
Deacon Phillip S. Thomas Sr. was very much involved in his church; Greater New Psalmist Church of Toledo, Ohio. Deacon Thomas was the Chairman of the Board of Directors and Vice Chairman of the Deacon Board.
He was preceded in death by his father William Edward Thomas Sr. and his brother Ronald LaDale Thomas Sr. He leaves to cherish his memory; his mother Willa Lee Thomas, special friend, Christina Rodriguez; aunt, Phyllis (James) Gilmer, cousins, Sandy Robinson and Phil Copeland; sisters Linda, Valerie, Phyllis (Michael) Hardy, Kimberly and Karen (Lewis) Simpson; brothers, William, Gary, and Steven; children, Norman Allen, Christopher, Kristina, Rhonda (Maurice), Phillip Jr. (Mariah), Drue Belanga, special daughter Janay Bills, 9 grandchildren, and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends. HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL!
