Michael James Thom, born on April 22, 1962, in Abilene, Texas, peacefully passed away on November 29, 2023. He was preceded in death by his parents, James Leo Thom and Shirley Meuir.
Mike proudly served his country, dedicating four years in the Navy and another four years in the Army as a cook. On December 30, 1985, he embarked on a journey of 29 years of marriage with his first wife, Leatrice Michelle Thom, who preceded him in death. Their son Micheal E. Thom also preceded him in death.
A man of dedication and learning, Mike earned an associates degree in applied management from Central Texas College and a bachelor's degree in Bible Theology from Norris Bible Baptist. He served as a pastor at Grace Baptist Church in Jacksboro, Texas, and Willow Springs, embodying an old-fashioned revivalist focus on guiding God's people back to Godliness.
Throughout his entire working career in the food service industry, Mike showcased exceptional organizational skills. Even when he lost his voice, he continued to minister by distributing religious tracts to everyone he encountered.
In the later years of his life, Mike found love once again and married Mandy Thom. Together, they shared a life enriched by Mandy's children, Kristian Jones and Allyson Jones. He reveled in the joy of two grandchildren, Elijah Thom and Logan Thom.
Mike is survived by his sister, Christi Frick, brother, Kevin Seals and daughter-in-law Katy Thom.
A celebration of Mike's life will be held at Clayton Kay Vaughan Funeral Home on December 6 at 11:00 am with interment at the National Cemetery in Dallas, Texas on December 7 at 10 am.
