Roy O. Thomas, 86, passed away on Tuesday, May 9, 2017. In Lieu of flower donations may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Roy joined the U.S Air Force before he graduated from Denison High school. He was an athletic instructor for the first 3 years and later became a flight engineer. He was stationed in Burtonwood, England and was given the opportunity to see all of Europe.

He played football for the Burtonwood Bullets. After serving his country for 12 years, he returned to Texas. In the early 80’s, Roy and his wife Lou started Thomas Plastics Inc.

He was very proud of the legacy that he has left for his employees, customers, and family. His greatest accomplishment is being a beloved “Papa” to his grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his son, Rodney Scogin.

The family would like to express their gratitude for the excellent care by Shannon, Linda and the entire staff at Encompass Hospice.

Roy is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Lou Thomas; children, Lisa Balkom (Mike), and Dianna Totten (Ronnie); grandchildren, Molly and Mason Totten.
