I left Harrah during the summer of our junior/senior years with my parents who moved to the Woodstock, GA which is located in Northwest Atlanta. I returned for the last semester of our senior year to graduate at Harrah… so I did. I then left Harrah after graduation to return to Woodstock. I then spent my summer and fall there and had such a good time. It truly was the time of my life. So much so that I will forever be connected with the area. I joined the USAF in Feb of 1988 and served at Warner Robins AFB just south of Macon, GA until I earned an honorable discharge in March of 1990. I then moved to Nashville, TN to live with my uncle until which time I could save enough money to return to the Atlanta area as my parents had since moved back to Oklahoma. I made it back and lived in Woodstock and worked as a mechanic. I stayed there until March of 1992 when I was approached by some transient friends and asked if I would like to move to Las Vegas. Well I hated my job, my rental agreement was up, and I just broke up with my girlfriend...so AWAY I WENT!!! We went immediately to Mardi gras in New Orleans...yeah that is in the "general" direction of Las Vegas from Atlanta. After about 4 days there and more fun than I cared to have, we went on to work in Houston for a while to save more money to make it to Atlanta. We traveled up to Oklahoma to visit my parents and paid Ken Heffley a visit on our way out of town. Drove to Las Vegas and lived there for a full 3 months before I was sick of that. What happens in Vegas...right? Anyway, I moved back to Oklahoma to earn money to get me back to Woodstock. I worked and lived with Ken Heffley where we ran network cabling and I accidentally found out what I was supposed to do with my life, which would be networking, computers, video, audio, cabling, technology, etc...
In 1995 I went to work for Southwestern Bell and am still with them...although we bought AT&T and changed our name to AT&T now.
During my time in Oklahoma, I met my first wife, along with my son Kyle and lived in Little Axe (Norman) for that time. Kyle graduated in 2005 and has been in the United States Air Force ever since. He has a wonderful wife Rachael and a son named Austin who was born on my birthday in 2010.
In 2007, company purchased Bellsouth and offered me a job in Atlanta, which I took and moved back to Woodstock, GA. Although I now live 850 miles from my family I have the good fortune to live close to some of my closest friends.
I married my current wife (and best friend) Maurie at a cold outdoor service on Oct. 17, 2009. My wife and I have now welcomed Jackson Denney Thomas into the world on August 31, 2010 and William Joseph Thomas on August 21, 2012.
