Life & Loss

Unable to find many details about Thomas' life or loss, except that he died on December 23, 1937. He was married to Margaret Adams (1905 - 1989). They had one child, Thomas Jr.

He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. (Note the transcription of his date of death seems to be incorrect; the 1938 Officer Registry lists his date of death as above.)

Thomas is not listed as a qualified naval aviator. The Register of Commissioned and Warrant Officers of the United States Navy and Marine Corps for 1937 lists him as a Captain stationed at "Headquarters Marine Corps." The 1937 Navy Directory, however, lists him as a 1LT "mar det, USS Reina Mercedes, instr Naval Academy"
