He is survived by his loving sister, Betty Jane Rhodes, a longtime resident of Kill Devil Hills; and Karen Parrish, his closest friend and companion, of Nags Head and many cousins and family in Maryland. Thomas is also God Father of Robert Preston, of Nags Head and Rob and Alex Bennett, of Richmond, VA. No services are planned. A celebration of his life will be at a later date.
