Thomas James Lincoln

Thomas James Lincoln, 73, passed away Dec. 30, 2005, of cancer at St. John's Medical Center in Jackson with his family around him.

He was born Oct. 25, 1932, in Midland, Mich., the son of Daniel A. and Jennie Smith Lincoln. He married Mary Trombly on Oct. 25, 1952, in Midland. They later divorced.

He enlisted in the United States Air Force in March 1952. He was stationed at Lackland Air Force Base in Del Rio, Texas, as a jet mechanic. He was sent overseas to Landstool, Germany, Air Force Base in 1954 and was honorably discharged in February 1960. He was a life member of the VFW.

At the time of his death he was a member of VFW Post 4801 in Pinedale. He was chief steward of the Union for Delo-Chemical in Midland; was the president of the Homebuilders Association of Michigan and owned Lincolns Builders in Midland.

Thomas was a steam and pipe fitter for Delo-Chemical. He came to Bondurant in 1988 and worked for J.B. Plumbing in Jackson then for I.N.O Plumbing in Wilson. He then worked for Grand Teton Plumbing and retired from Sonny's Plumbing in 1995. He was a plumber for more than 50 years.

Thomas married Paula Burrows in Jackson on June 21, 1991.

He had many friends in Jackson and Bondurant. His best friend and buddy was Paul Crittenden of Sleeping Indian Outfitters in Bondurant. They were like "two peas in a pod," what I call a true friend.

Growing up he loved to play baseball with his older brother, Dan. He played baseball overseas while he was in the air force in Germany and Spain. He played in the World-Wide Tournament and he and his team won. His mother and father got to see him play and he gave his mother the baseball from the game. His wife, Paula, now has the ball.

Thomas' favorite time of year was hunting because his son Mike would come from Michigan to hunt and that would bring a smile to his face. He had fun every summer when he helped with the poker riders at Sleeping Indian Outfitters. He was the official bean stirrer. He would laugh because Paul would yell at him because he would stir the beans the wrong way, but they turned out good anyway.

Thomas also played in golf tournaments in Pinedale and Star Valley with the Bondurant Fire Department.

Thomas leaves behind his wife, Paula Lincoln of Bondurant; brothers Joe (Deanna) Lincoln of Pinedale, Bob (Rosa) Lincoln of Midland; sister-in-law, Anna Lincoln of Midland; two sons: Mike and Paul Lincoln of Midland; three daughters: Candie Lincoln of California, Sherry (Pete) Griffin of Plymouth, Mich., and Sue Lincoln of Ann Arbor, Mich.; stepson Nokoi Sanchez of Pocatello, Idaho; stepdaughter Nitanna Sanchez of Philadelphia, Pa.; 10 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and his older brother, Dan.

At his request, cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held during the summer in Bondurant.
