Sherman Allen "Bubba" Thomas passed away on Tuesday, October 26, 2010. Born on August 13, 1941 in Austin, Texas to Mr. William Thomas and Mrs. Violet A. Thomas. Sherman was the first born of nine children.

He believed and confessed a hope in Jesus Christ and was baptized at an early age at Gildon Creek Third Baptist Church in Manor, Texas.
He graduated from Manor High School in 1960. Sherman was employed by Austin Independent School District and retired after 32 years of service.
As a young man, Sherman had a gift of music. He played the piano and organ for area and local bands for many years.
He had a passion for barbequing for family gatherings, often times sharing with his neighbors and friends. He believed that he was the Bar-b-que King. To us he really was. Gardening was also his passion. His yard was always impecable. There was never a single blade of grass that was not in its place, Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall. Family members would say that when he sat on the porch he was watching the grass grow, only to cut it again the very same day or definitely the next day. Sherman took great pride in his vegetable garden which he planted every Spring and Fall. He always shared with great pride and pleasure, his plenteous bounty.
He was preceded in death by his father, William Thomas, and daughter, Andrina Denise Mabry.

Sherman leaves to cherish his memory: his mother, Violet Thomas; Edna Kelly Thomas a loving and devoted wife of 46 years of Austin; two daughters: Sharon Arlisa Thomas Christle of Carrollton and Sonya Annette Thomas Griffis (Dontrell) of Pflugerville; four sisters: Shirley Thomas Gordon (Julius) of Austin, Janice Thomas Priestley of Pearland, Debra Thomas Russell of Round Rock, Barbara Thomas Wright (Gregory) of Grand Prairie, Texas; four brothers: John E. Thomas, Ellis R. Thomas, William E. Thomas, Larry E. Thomas (Angela) all of Austin, Texas; four grandchildren: Whitney Mabry, Ebony Christle, Emerald Christle of Carrollton, Texas, Cameron Breckenridge of Pflugerville, Texas and a host of nieces, nephews, other family members and dear friends, join them in honoring the blessed life and eternal memory of Sherman Allen Thomas.
