He was an excellent wood craftsman and made picture frames by hand. Joe Jr's business was bringing happiness and joy to others, especially to his loving wife and family.

RE: Death of Joe Jr.


Retired former Western/Delta Captain Joe Thomas sent the email below this
morning reporting the tragic death of his son Joe Jr. in a motorcycle
accident in Alabama where he lived. Joe Jr's wife Gini, riding with him, is
in critical condition at University of Alabama Birmingham Medical Center. I
tried to reach Joe today by phone and email but have not had a response.
No word on funeral details at this time. I will let you know if I learn of

It is my very sad and almost impossible duty to inform you good friends that
on Sunday morning, August 12th, at 10:15, I lost my best friend and son
Joseph Morgan Thomas Jr.
Joe and his beautiful wife Gini were on a bike trip to Columbiana, AL, about
1hr. ride, to help Joe's mom unload some furniture and then return to
Montgomery that afternoon. According to an eye witness, they were hit
broadside by a Mercury Marquis that ran a stop sign. Joe Jr. passed at the
scene. Gini is fighting for her life and undergoing surgery to hopefully
repair a shattered right leg at the UAB medical center in Birmingham. The
20 year old driver of the Marquis passed a breath test and was given a ride
home by the police. There have been no charges filed. I am told the case is
"under investigation". Your prayers for Gini are needed and will be
appreciated. I can not respond futher as I am on a hotel computer.
Sincerely, Joe Thomas Sr.

More details will be posted on the Flight West page when available:
