Mr. Thomason was the oldest son born to Stewart Turner and Bessie Lee Hamilton Thomason in Anniston, AL.  He spent his elementary and high school years in Bremen, GA graduating in 1959.  Mr. Thomason enjoyed multiple sports throughout his life paving the way for his life’s work as a high school coach which included football, baseball and even a state championship golf team (a sport he never played).

He valued his opportunities for higher education having held a Bachelors degree from Auburn University, a Masters degree from the University of Southern Mississippi and with advanced course work from Valdosta State and Georgia Southern Universities. While completing his Masters degree at USM he was privileged to coach freshman football and recruit football players from high schools throughout the southeast.  “Coach” became his name of reference for the rest of his life.  He never tired of coaching and teaching mathematics at Lakeside and Peachtree High Schools in Atlanta and Adel and Camden County High Schools in south Georgia.

Coach was a tireless gardener sharing his bounty with the community.  He created Coach’s Lunch Bunch to help gentlemen his age enjoy fellowship at local restaurants.  Coach was a multi-talented individual.  His greatest achievement has been researching a family history initiated by his mother, to which he added five years’ worth of publications to share with his family and libraries throughout the south.

He was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by his devoted wife of 46 years, Jo Wynne Thomason, sons James Wynne “Jim” Thomason, of Ocean Springs, MS, Stewart Allen Thomason (Sara), of Isle of Palms, SC, and daughter Sue Ellen Thomason Cheek (Shawn) of Woodstock, GA.
