Hilton E. "H.E." Thomas, Jr., 87, peacefully entered into Heaven on Wednesday, April 4, 2018. He was in Naples, FL with his daughter, Susan, and her family after moving from High Point, NC where he spent most of his life.
He was son of the late Hilton E. Thomas, Sr. and Juanita Moody Thomas. He was also preceded in death by one of his loving sisters, Peggy Ann Thomas.
After college, H.E. pursued a career as an Electrical Estimator for Bryant Electric Company until later in his life when he made a change to become self-employed and owner of The Wagon Wheel.
He always lived his life loving people, helping others, and giving hope and encouragement to everyone he met. In his daughter’s eyes and heart he wins the gold medal for BEST DAD as he had always been there for her with great love. Many others have also described him to be best remembered as “one-in-a-million” with a big heart. He enjoyed traveling, cooking, hosting parties and events, spending time with family and friends, and even dancing. He was also a member of Harvest Point Church in High Point, NC.
Surviving are daughter, Susan Thomas Brewer; son-in-law, Randy Brewer; grandson, Thomas Adam Brewer; sister, Hilda (“Heidi”) Thomas Entner and her husband, Rocky Entner both of Chicago, IL.
A memorial service will be held at a future date in Naples, FL. At that time family and friends will be asked to share some of the many memories of times spent with H.E. Anyone out of town is encouraged to share memories on H.E.'s tribute page.
Memorials may be made to Harvest Point Church, 312 Skeet Club Road, High Point, NC 27265 - Attention: Pastor Rick. It was H.E.’s desire that everyone he knew and held dear to his heart would come to know the love and ‘saving grace’ of Jesus and to be reunited with him in Heaven one day.
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) TLB
He will be greatly missed by all who knew him but may we all find comfort in knowing he is now with his Heavenly Father and those gone on before him. He is out of sight but will remain in our hearts forever.
