John Thomas Obituary

John MacVicar Thomas, born July 12, 19945, in Seattle, WA departed peacefully July 31, 2023, at the age of 78, from Alzheimer's. His journey was one of love, dedication, & an unwavering spirit of adventure.

John's life began in the embrace of his parents, Kathryn M. F. & "Ted" Llewellyn B. Thomas, growing up alongside his two older sisters, Nancy & Frances "Lynn." Their family found joy in gatherings at Lake Serene & Lake Washington, creating lasting memories. Education played a significant role in John's life, attending Roosevelt High School & Seattle College, before his employment at The Boeing Company. In 1968, he enlisted in the Navy. Serving honorably during the Vietnam War, he was a Data Processing Technician Petty Officer aboard the U.S.S. Ticonderoga & later "NAVMAC" in San Diego, California. Post-military (1972) John dedicated 30 years to King County Systems Services & Information Technology Department. In his retirement, he continued to spread joy, delivering flowers for Carol's Floral in Maple Valley. 

John's passions were as diverse as they were numerous-gardening, cooking, carpentry, traveling, photography, hiking, boating, & various sports & making people laugh. Family held a special place in his heart, especially his beloved wife Teri, of 32 years, his children, and grandchildren.

John is survived by his loving wife, Teri; children, stepchildren, Kimberly, Danielle, Katie, Matt, & Sarah; Grandchildren, Virginia, Tyler, Alec, Jacob, Linken, Olivia, Olia, Evelyn, & Many other family & friends. May his life be a blessing in our memories & may he be at Peace.
