John, 47, passed from this life to be with his Lord and Savior on Thursday, December 16, 2010, in Santa Maria, Calif.

John was the son of Richard and Janice Thomas, and lived many years in the San Fernando and Conejo Valley's in Southern California. He graduated from Thousand Oaks High School in 1983. John was challenged in his life but brought a joy and understanding to everyone he met. He loved the Lord God with all his heart and was always

surrounded by Gods angles. John had a compassion and love for animals and tried to take care of them at the local

animal shelter.

John spent most of his adult life in the Ventura and Santa

Maria areas. John loved the ocean and enjoyed his walks along the beach. He was his happiest there.

John was preceded in death by his father, Richard Thomas; grandmother, Evelynne Beler; great-grandfather, John

Francis Munighan. He is survived by his mother, Janice "Jan" Thomas; sister; Deborah (Andy) Bermea; nephew, Drew; niece, Tori; his very special aunt, Denise Davis; uncles, Paul Vielle and Brian Viel; and many cousins.

John's family wish to thank Maria Roldan and Beth for all the care and kindness they gave to him through the years and Tri-Counties Regional Center for their long term assistance.

John will be laid to rest in Eagle Point, Ore., where his

mother resides, at a later date. Conger-Morris Mortuary in Medford, Ore., will be handling the details.
