Abel Fred Thomas, age 83, passed away very peacefully at his home Saturday, July 14, 2018 surrounded by his family who loved him dearly.
Abel was born on July 8, 1935 in Las Vegas, NM to Eufracio and Piedad Rivera Thomas, who precedes him in death.
Abel served his country proudly as a US Marine. After retiring as a life insurance agent, Abel had more time to spend with his lifetime companion, Angie Brady, who survives him at the family home. He loved the great outdoors he enjoyed camping and fishing with his family and friends. He, not only appreciated the peace and the calm that nature had to offer, but also hearing the giggling and fussing of his 12 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. On days Abel was not at the lake fishing, he was playing golf with his friends. He was an avid Dallas Cowboy fan, he enjoyed watching the games with a beer or whiskey in his hand!
