Thomas, Thomas J. - Pinehurst  
Thomas J. ThomasAmerica's Greatest Generation lost another member as 98 year-old Thomas James Thomas peacefully passed away in the early hours of July 23rd in his Pinehurst, NC home. A Captain in the US Army Air Force's 8th Airborne, he was stationed in Colorado and then in Bungay, England for the duration of WWII. Like many of his generation, he was a determined but humble man with a wry sense of humor and rarely spoke about himself. He was born October 8, 1916 in Dayton, Ohio, attended Steele High School, undergraduate school at the University of Dayton and dental school at Northwestern University. Having had a long distance romance during the War with Matina Carvelas of Youngstown, Ohio, he married her in 1945 upon his return from England. They started a family in Dayton, OH where for 40 years he was one of the country's most talented dentists. He and Matina reared 4 children, Loy, Jim, Lee (Janet) and John (Susan and their two children, Tess and Tom). Retiring to Pinehurst, NC in 1984, he was one of the pioneering volunteers at the First Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Department where over 26 years he volunteered an astounding 6,127.5 hours of dedicated service. While in Pinehurst Tom and Matina developed a corps of loving friends and became steadfast members of the community. After 64 years of marriage Tom suffered the loss of his loving wife, Matina, who passed away exactly 20 years to the day after the untimely death in 1989 of their eldest son, Jim. With them he is reunited. He was a life-long member of the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in Dayton, OH as well as Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church, Fayetteville, NC. A funeral service was held at 3 PM Saturday July 25, 2015 at the Pinelawn Memorial Park Mausoleum in Southern Pines NC with Reverend Alexander Papagikos officiating.
