Son of John M. Thomas and Agnes E. Norton Thomas (1917-1992). Brother of Patricia Thomas.

Aug. 11, 1947: In Los Angeles, Mr. and Mrs. John Thomas took their two children, Raymond, 9, and Patricia, 7, to nearby Hansen Dam for a Sunday picnic. The children wandered off and could not be found. Next morning Chief Lifeguard F.M. Cox fished Patricia's body out of the dam reservoir and brought it ashore. While he tried helplessly to sympathize, Mrs. Thomas sobbed and turned away. A few minutes later another searcher discovered Raymond's body.
