Born November 12, 1946, in DeSoto Parish, Louisiana, he is the son of Jack and Gertrude Adams Thomas.  Jimmy, better known as Paw, was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend.  Paw never met a stranger and everyone he encountered loved him.  His smile was contagious.  He was selfless, generous, kind, and most of all, he loved unconditionally.  He loved his family larger than life and some of his favorite times were spent with them at the beach.

Jimmy was a hard worker and started his lifelong driving career at 16 years old, driving a dairy truck.  He spent the rest of his career hauling pipe where he made numerous memories and where he met many of his lifelong friends.

Jimmy is survived by his wife, Carol Thomas; daughters, Renee Rambin, Angie Conaster and spouse Billy, and Tracy Hendricks; grandchildren, Brandon Rambin, Derrick Conatser and spouse Janell, Tiffany Lucero and spouse Brandon, Brylee Hendricks, and Bailee Hendricks; great grandchildren, Jaxon Rambin, Hudson Conaster, and Lucas Lucero; brothers and sisters, Jerry Thomas, Joe Thomas, Jan Harvey, Ann Liles, and Randy Thomas; brother-in-law, Butch Fletcher; friend, Buddy; and sister-in-law, Nancy English.
