Thomas Dawson, affectionately known as "Tom" was born February 5. 1963 in Chicago, IL to Laura and Willie Ralph Dawson. He was the 12th of 13 children. During his formative years, Tom attended Irving C. Mollison Elementary School and Calumet High School where he received his education.
Thomas had recently received an invitation ti be reborn again by joining Resurrection House Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Marcus Randall where he turned his life over to Christ. He never met a stranger and always had a good laugh to put a smile on anybody's face. He loved to crack jokes, and make people laugh he had a way with with words and people, he always wanted to see a smile on other's faces.
Thomas loved watching T.V. and reading the newspaper and making sure he kept up with what was going on in the world. He could hold a conversation about any topic in the world or any neighborhood. He also loved talking about sports and reminisce on the old basketball players of his era, he knew every team and player.
Thomas was the neighborhood man (I believed he was O.C.D). he helped all the elderly people in the neighborhood whether it was cleaning their yards, houses, and going to the store, taking out their trash, cutting their grass, to shoveling their snow. He will truly be missed and he was definitely love by many families and friends from the neighborhood.
Thomas found the love of his life (Felicia Coleman) and was ready to marry and settle down in holy matrimony with her. They relocated to Louisville, Kentucky where they began their new life that only "God" could have granted them this amazing opportunity. He spoke very highly of her on many occasions and told how much he enjoyed and loved her being in his circle. He smiled every time he talked about her. He wanted her to know she was the sugar and cream to his coffee.
Thomas gained his wings and claim his mansion on March 1, 2020 where God needed his helpful son for a job that only "Thomas" could fulfill.
