Thomas is originally from Victoria. He first ran away from home around the age of 13-14. He stayed with a friend in a clothing donation box to stay warm. He got out of jail around age 21 and was using drugs. He didn't care about anything. What's contributed most to his difficulties in life is having been medically discharged from the military for no reason. Then his girlfriend left him shortly after that, taking their daughter with her. Thomas is an auto body painter by trade. He's very keen on building things. Everyone in the shelter comes to him to fix things. What makes him happy is fixing things, working on engines, and also working on model cars and painting them. If he had unlimited resources, he'd like to have a little shop to fix up old cars. He'd appreciate prayers for his family to be happy. If there was one person he could reconnect with, it would be Kristen Ringstead, a very good old friend who lives in Enderby, BC who was studying to be a nurse. For Christmas, he would love to get a gift card for a bike shop or London Drugs and he loves Chinese food.
