J.W. was born March 9, 1927 in Dickens County to Floyd Earl and Irelia McNerlin Thomason. He served in the U.S. Army, 508th Battalion during WWII. He married Dorothy Chilcoat July 11, 1987 in Abilene. He drove a truck for Permian Corp. and farmed for many years. Although J.W. lived in other places over the years, Dickens County was always home.

He is survived by his wife; six sons, Jay Lyle Thomason, Jerrold Dane Thomason, George Starcher, Ken Starcher, John Starcher, and Terry Qualls; four daughters, Janice Brown, Annette Evers, Cheryl Harper, and Mayre Stewart; three brothers, Darrell, Jerry and Marvin Thomason; three sisters, Geraldine Daughtry, Linda Hargrove and Wanda Agnew; 27 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren, and one on the way.
A heartfelt thanks goes out to the staffs of the Hospitality House and Interim Hospice Healthcare for their loving care and support.
