Jeffery Alan Thomas, 63, of Milford, DE passed away after a struggle with lung cancer on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at Beebe Medical Center, Lewes. Jeff was born in Milford the son of the Betty Neugent and the late Walter Thomas. He spent his entire life enjoying living in Milford except for a few years he had lived in Florida. In 1983, Jeff married his first love and girlfriend Nancy Fisher. Over the years, he enjoyed spending time with his family at home and taking ski trips to the mountains. His pleasures included fishing, riding his motorcycles, and tending to his home and lawn. He was happiest being outside on a warm, sunny day, after working on lawncare from April until October. Over the years, he worked in carpentry, tile and slate and briefly as a self-employed truck driver for Atlantic Concrete. His hobbies in later life included wood carving and chair caning; both self-taught and mastered, as he did with everything in his life. Jeff’s guidance and knowledge will be missed by his wife and family. His last wishes over the summer were to once again to be able to enjoy his family and work outside on a warm, sunny day. God bless him with rest and peace in the sunshine of his love.
He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Nancy; two daughters Lindsey Taylor and her husband Cody and Brooke Thomas and her fiancee’ Joshua Annand; his granddaughter Lillian Grace Taylor; his mother Betty Neugent and his 5 sisters Kelly, Barbara, Sandy, Sherri and Karen.
