James Thomas was truly one in a million. James had the unique ability to instantly connect with anyone and make them feel comfortable. He was a good friend to many. Tragically, James suffered from severe asphyxia this last weekend and was in the ICU for a week before succumbing to his injuries and passing away. He will be greatly missed by family and friends alike. James is survived by loving parents Acione (nee De Paula) and James P. Thomas, as well as dear brother of Patrick Thomas . He has left his loved ones with tremendous hospital and funeral bills. We are truly grateful for anything you can contribute & your generosity is much appreciated in this hard time.
