Kenneth Ray Thomas, son of John and Edna (Scott) Thomas was born on August 12, 1955 in Platte, SD. He grew up in the Kimball, SD area, attending Kimball, Vivian and Plankinton schools. Kenneth worked for several companies in Rapid City, SD including Century 21 and Captain Clean doing cleaning, yard work, and lawn maintenance.

Kenneth enjoyed singing and playing his guitar at various nursing homes. He had a big heart, playing his guitar to raise money for the needy.

Kenneth had a talent for wood crafts, leather crafts and oil paintings. He loved tending his flowers and raising a garden (giving most of the produce away). The home place always had a nice manicured look with homemade bird houses everywhere.

Kenneth is survived by: one son, Steven Thomas (from a previous marriage) of Spearfish, SD; two brothers: Richard (Vickie) Thomas of Gregory, SD and Dallas (Lois) Thomas of Tabor, SD; along with several nieces and nephews.

We loved Kenny! Loved his guitar and singing and enthusiasm for his birds and plans fot the farm. Even after we moved to Iowa he came out to see us. God's love to the family.

Kenny played the guitar and sang at many family picnics, and made those events even more memorable. I am thankful for all those occasions. Rest in peace, Kenny. From Cousin LaVonne
