He attended Vicksburg schools. He worked for over 30 years for Woolf Excavating and operated heavy equipment. He is described as unique, kind of a hippy, caring and would do anything for anyone. He enjoyed fishing and hunting. As well as spending time with his good friend’s, Gary Peterson and his wife Carolyn processing meat. Although he had a few Harley’s and was considered a big bad biker, he never felt he had enough time to ride. He had a soft spot for his rescue dog, Schaffer which was a yellow Labrador Retriever that was dropped off in the country by his home that he cared for deeply.

David is survived by his mother, Marian Thomas; two children: Rachel Thomas, of Scotts; Luke (Katie) Thomas, of Scotts; one grandson: Tustin Scott; one sister: Melanie (Kevin) Tyler, of Vicksburg; and his dog, Schaffer. He is preceded in death by his father, Gordon Thomas.
