On January 8, 1966 in Headland, Alabama, our Heavenly Father blessed John Lee and Arlene Thomas with a handsome baby boy Johnnie Thomas, affectionately known as “JT”.
Johnnie departed this earth for his heavenly home on Sunday, September 2, 2018. He attended Headland High School in Headland, Alabama. In his children’s early years he was a coach for city league basketball and football. He accepted Christ at an early age and became a faithful member of Greater Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Headland, Alabama. He became a deacon, usher, youth leader and involved with all committed at church. He loved football and couldn't wait for the college and pro season to start. He was a true Dallas Cowboys and Alabama Crimson Tide fan. He worked with the City of Dothan for twenty-two years with a special crew. He also had a lawn care business that made all yards look immaculate.
