Alan Dale Thomas


Aspen, CO ColoradoAlan Dale Thomas, a resident of Thomasville, was taken unexpectedly from his family and friends all too soon. He was a kind, giving and loving man. A rare find. He was a hard worker, and excellent provider and entrepreneur. He was the best son and big brother that any mother and siblings could wish for. A grandson, a nephew and uncle, very loving daddy and grandpa, and an absolutely adored husband. He was 47.

He lived for the mountains and great outdoors. He was a passionate hunter, as well as an avid fisherman. He was a giving neighbor and friend to many. The world could learn from how he lived.

He is proceeded in death by his first wife, Delphina, and his younger brother Vincent. He is survived by his grandparents Joe and Ann Mendicelli of Grand Junction; his mother, JoAnn Peters, and stepfather Robert Peters of San Diego; his younger brother Vaughn Thomas of Anacortes, Wash.; his stepbrothers Scott and Dale Peters of San Diego; his stepsister Jessica Gorham of San Diego; his two daughters Amber and Sidney; his granddaughter Sintia, and his wife and soul mate Rachel; as well as aunts and uncles, brother- and sisters-in-law, and numerous extended family.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Alan Thomas fund that Jeff Jacobson started at Alpine Bank in Basalt.There will be a celebration of life at 25183 Frying Pan Road at 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17. A gathering will follow at the Diamond J guest ranch on Frying Pan Road.
