Danny Weylan Thomas December 15, 1950- February 4, 2013 LaGrange, Georgia- Danny's journey was a long one. From his boyhood home of Columbus Georgia, Danny traveled the U.S. He never met a stranger. His last place of residence was in La Grange Ga at the home of his sister Jane Thomas Moman and her husband Lincoln "Chips" Moman. In 1950 he was born to proud parents Rudolph Thomas and Joyce Farrar Thomas (Molton). He attended and graduated from Columbus High School as a star line back of the 1969 Blue Devil football team, #34. He left Columbus for Charleston, SC after marrying the love of his life Moncille Vagalenti Thomas. They gave birth to their son, Dylan Taylor Thomas and survived hurricane Hugo. Danny began his career work alongside his father and uncle, James L. Thomas at Thomas Mechanical Contractors, Inc. in Columbus. His work as a Project Manager led him on a journey of multiple large construction sites transverse the USA and England. His quick wit and easy conversation helped him to never meet a stranger. He had a true love of life and an open heart. His essence was based in a profound love of people. Danny died Monday at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta from complications of a blood disorder. He was 62. His body was cremated on February 8 by Advantage Funeral Services, and a memorial service is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday, February 16 at The Church in the County, Highway 315 Cataula, Georgia. In addition to his estranged wife, Moncille and son, Dylan, Danny is survived by his greatest gift - grandson Jace Thomas, his mother Joyce Thomas Molton, three supportive sisters and their spouses: Jane and "Chips" Moman, Jenny and Rick Brettelle and Jody Wilson and her sweet Elwood. He will always be remembered by his nephew Todd Culpepper and his wife Dawn (Cal and Carson), nephew Nigel Evans and niece Erin Brettelle. His memory will be held dear by cousins Luann Moore, Kelly and Dale Land, Robin and Stan Berry, Jay and Trisha Terry, Jerry and Debbie Thomas and David and Jenny Kite. His entire life will be held in the heart of his uncle Jack (Gordon E.) Terry and his aunt Martha Thomas Burris. To all who knew him, he will be missed. Flowers are always welcomed by Danny's family but contributions to the Jace Cameron Taylor Thomas scholarship fund at Columbus Bank and Trust in Columbus Ga will help preserve Danny's dream of seeing his beloved grandson able to pursue his own dreams. A debt of gratitude is extended to the staff of ICU green at Piedmont Hospital on Peachtree Street in Atlanta GA for your never ending care and concern for our sweet brother.
