In memory: Bradley Jay Thomas

Bradley Jay Thomas, of Fort Collins, born on October 3, 1975, died on July 3, at the age of 43. Our Heavenly Father came and peacefully carried Brad to a place of light, peace, and overwhelming love. After nine months of metastatic lung cancer, Brad is now breathing deeply and clearly in heaven.

He leaves behind his wife of 17 years, Aisha Thomas, and his three children; his favorite oldest, 12 years, his favorite middle child, 6 years, and his favorite son, 5 years. He is also remembered by his mother, Jeannette; his father, Gerald; his younger brother, Chris; and many family members and friends.

Brad served his family as a stay-at-home dad for six years and was previously a graphic designer at Colorado State University, where he also earned his Bachelor’s in fine arts and graphic design in 2002. Brad was an active member of Crossroads Church in Loveland and loved all things music, art, Star Wars, and disc golf. Brad’s easy-going nature, quick wit, and great hugs will be missed by many. In lieu of flowers or gifts, we ask for a donation in his name to Inheritance of Hope, an organization that supports families of parents coping with terminal illness.

His memorial party is at 11:38 a.m. Friday, July 12, at Crossroads Church Loveland, 5420 N. Taft Ave in Loveland, CO. Anyone who can’t attend in person is welcome to pray for his spirit and his family left on earth at 11:38 a.m.
