1950 - 2014 GREAT BARRINGTON Dennis G. Thomas, beloved friend and colleague, passed away peacefully at the age of 64, on December 6. A resident of Great Barrington, Mass., Dennis served as Director of Finance for Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in Becket for nineteen years. He was a dedicated staff member, supportive mentor, and trusted friend. Raised in St. Louis, Mo. and Charleston, S.C., Dennis was educated at Furman University and Goddard College. A seasoned arts administrator, he served on staff at arts organizations across the East coast, including Philadelphia's Fabric Workshop and Museum; Spoleto Festival USA; Boston's Next Move Theatre Company; and Boston Ticket Services. His volunteer associations and Board membership spanned many community arts councils and performing arts organizations. He was a tireless advocate for Dancers Responding to AIDS, volunteering and raising funds for the organization and its efforts. Dennis loved musical theater and all things Southern. He was a consummate gentleman. He loved to cook and share hearty laughs with friends and family. We will miss his kind heart, jovial nature, and generous spirit.
