Donald Eugene “Gene” Thomas, Jr., 52, of Early Branch, SC passed away at his home on November 14, 2020.
Gene was born on September 12, 1968 in Fairfax, VA to Donald Eugene Thomas (deceased) and Patricia Bollinger Thomas.
Everyone who knew Gene knew he was a kind person, a loving husband, dad, poppa, brother and friend. He was one of a kind. If you needed something fixed or cooked on the grill he was your guy. He touched many hearts in ways some people will never understand. He was an outdoor enthusiast enjoying fishing, camping and watching the sunrise or staring at his 1977 F100 or should we say his baby, his love for Fords was undeniable. People often said no matter what, he always had something nice to say. He will truly be missed by so many for he has touched a lot of lives.
