James V. Thomas passed away the morning of September 15, 2017. Jim was born and raised in Independence, MO, one of eight children. He served as a Staff Sergeant in the US Army during the Vietnam War, where he was a Purple Heart recipient. His lifelong career in the convenience store industry took him to Iowa, Texas, and finally back home to Missouri, where he found the people who became more family than co-workers. He will be remembered for his generous spirit and his deep love for his family, friends, and God. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Linda, who was with him until the very end; his son Scott; his daughter Kathy and her husband Ira. He leaves behind two beloved grandsons, Braden and Colton, whom he supported in every way imaginable. Jim will also be remembered by a multitude of family and friends who were treated as family. A visitation will be held 4-6:30pm Thursday September 21 at Kansas City Church, 7700 N. Church Rd. Memorial service will follow at 6:30pm. Memorial Contributions may be made to Kansas City Church Children’s Ministries.

Words can never convey how much he is loved and missed. We will see you again in the stars someday.
