Charles Kohl Thomas chose to go home on April 19, 2015. He was welcomed there into the loving arms of his Grandpa Thomas and his Grandma Clouse. Left behind to wade through their emotions of overwhelming heartbreak and loss are his parents, David and Terry (Clouse) Thomas, his 3 brothers Brock, Nick and Kalvin Thomas, and his sister in law Madison Thomas. He will also be dearly missed by his Grandpa Clouse and his Grandma Thomas, along with 24 aunts and uncles and dozens of cousins and friends.
His 18 short years with them all will be remembered and cherished as his lasting influence has shaped their past and will continue to mold their future. Kohl was a brilliant, warm, loving, caring person who loved music, reading, driving and just hanging out with friends. The melodic sounds of his guitar and the unrestrained joy of his laugh will be missed by all. He was named Ember Heart of the Mountain by his Anasazi brothers and sisters, which he truly lived up to. He was a light and a strength to all who knew him.
