Scott Keith Thomas Sr.

August 4th, 1951 - September 13th, 2023

Scott Keith Thomas, Sr. August 4, 1951, Allentown, PA - September 13, 2023, Lone Tree, CO A beacon of dedication, exploration, and boundless love, Scott Keith Thomas, Sr. passed away on September 13, 2023, leaving a legacy that will be cherished and remembered. Born in Allentown, PA, Scott's life was marked by service, adventure, and profound connections. Dedicated to his country, Scott served honorably in the United States Air Force for over two decades, specializing in communications. Following his military service, he collaborated on military contracts and later founded his own business focusing on wireless communication for telecommunications companies. His passion was further evidenced by his personal hobby as an amateur radio operator with the call sign “KC0OXB”. In every endeavor, Scott approached life with zest and a commitment to excellence. As a private pilot, he navigated the vast skies, with the majestic Colorado mountains being one of his favorite terrains to soar above. On land, he ventured on horseback across the open fields of Oklahoma. His connection to the outdoors was further exemplified by his passion for fishing in streams and lakes across the country and camping under its starlit skies. His warm-hearted nature made him a cherished figure in his neighborhood and within his family. Westlake Village in Broomfield, Colorado, held a special place in his heart. The bonds he forged with his neighbors were deep, and their mutual support defined their relationship. He is lovingly remembered by his son, Scott Keith Thomas, Jr.; grandchildren, Keegan A. Thomas, Jacob S. Thomas, and Sophia Dax Thomas; brother, Richard K. Thomas, Jr.; and sister, Deborah Ann Gaugler. Services are scheduled for Friday, October 6, 2023, at 10:00 AM at Fort Logan National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society. The family wishes to express their deep gratitude for the outpouring of love and support from friends, neighbors, and all who knew Scott. His legacy will continue to inspire, and his memory will forever be a source of strength and love.

🕊️ In memory of Scott K. Thomas. You were a soul full of adventure early on. You spent your summers at a place you loved, Camp Minsi located in the state of PA. By the age of 14 yrs. you had become an Eagle Scout. You were also a member of the Order of the Arrow, which is the National Honor Society of Scouting. How you loved the outdoors. You were also present at Fillmore, New Mexico for the Scouting Jamboree. Speaking of memories you were taking pics of the moon, craters and all, using a telescope and a old camera. Hours in the backyard on a cold winter night. And let's not forget how you sent "Tuner" your beloved hampster into space. Sure was dizzy when he got back! At that time you were into Este rockets. For sure when you played with that chemistry set you got for Christmas you had us worried. Thought we were doomed for sure. Your first CB was about the age of 15 yrs. Where did all this curiosity come from. About the only thing you didn't master was hanging tinsel on a christmas tree. Just a little pun. I guess it was to simple. Memories and traditions. Its what we do till the goid times come back. I sure have alot of those and they will always be with me. To a life well lived. By the way I am going to name a star for you. "TUNER".
