Obituary of Walter Thomas

Walter K. Thomas, 82 of Peru, passed away suddenly following a brief illness at the UVM Health Network, CVPH in Plattsburgh.

"Ken" as he was known by his family and friends retired from the New York State Department of Transportation in 1991 after 25 years of service.

He was a proud Ammunition Technician in the U.S. Marine Corp who toured in Japan and Korea.

He loved his family, traveling across the United States, motorcycling, camping, old western movies, NASCAR, and classic country music.

Ken will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Marlene of 61 years; four children, Darlene and Randy Coryer of Saratoga Springs, Michael and Tamara Thomas of Plattsburgh, Donna and William Downs of Peru, and Diana Thomas and companion Gary Trombley of Altona; six grandchildren, Randy, Shannon, Joshua, Kayela, Taylor and Brandon; six great-grandchildren Preston, Aaliyah, Addison, Aspen, Wayde and Jaxson; two sisters, Bonnie and Shirley; two brothers, James and Gerald; and several nieces and nephews.

Ken was predeceased by his parents, Elbridge and Ethel Thomas; brothers, Louis and Harold Thomas; and grandson, Karl Thomas Downs.

Calling hours will be held Thursday, September 27, 2018 from Noon to 2 pm at the Hamilton Funeral Home, 294 Mannix Road, Peru. Committal prayers, military honors and burial will follow in St. Augustine's Cemetery.
