SALISBURY - William John Thomas, 44, of Salisbury, passed away August 29, 2014, at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem surrounded by his loving family.
He was born Feb. 3, 1970, in Seaford, Del., a son of Donna Wyatt Moore and Bill Thomas. John was a 1988 graduate of Woodbridge High School and veteran of the U.S. Army.
He worked at Timber Ridge Treatment Center, as a night watchman until he became disabled. He was a member of the Rockwell AMVETS Post.
He was a gentle soul, a loving husband, a wonderful father, son and brother who will be sadly missed. He enjoyed spending time with his children, watching sports and shooting pool.
