Wilford Ray Thomas

March 7, 1948 - October 23, 2020

Wilford Ray Thomas, 72, of Owensboro, passed away Friday, October 23, 2020, at Twin Rivers Nursing and Rehabilitation. Born March 7, 1948 to the late Buck and Elsie Morgan Thomas, in Daviess County where he graduated from Owensboro High School. He was a mechanic at Don Moore for 33 years, and a member of the Baptist faith. He enjoyed taking his dog (Bear) to shows, playing pool, watching Nascar and loved fishing.

In addition to his parents he is preceded in death by his brother, Jerry Thomas.

Survivors include his brother Gary Thomas of Maceo, KY and several cousins.

I would like to thank the staff at Twin Rivers for taking care of Ray over the past 22 years. The kindness that they showed and treated him like he was family. It was a blessing to have so many compassionate people watching over him.

Services will be 10:00 am Monday, October 26, 2020 at Rosehill-Elmwood Cemetery, with brother Matt Boyd officiating.

All who wish to honor and remember Wilford in person at funeral are required to wear a mask or face covering while inside the funeral home for the safety of all those in attendance.
