Thomas Edward Cawthra Jr., 38, formerly of Whiting


MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Thomas Edward Cawthra Jr. was taken home sooner than expected, at the age of 38. He was a brother, uncle, cousin, nephew, and of course a son.

He was born to Patricia Marie (Huestis, Noble) and Thomas Cawthra Sr. (deceased). He is survived by his brothers, Kevin Noble, Heath and Savannah Noble (Freegard) and nephew; and his sister, Amanda and Chad Gordon and nieces. He had many aunts and uncles and cousins.

Thomas (TJ) grew up in Whiting, Vt., where he attended the local elementary school. He attended Otter Valley Union High School for middle and high school. He finished his university studies in Australia.

Thomas was a hard worker as an auto mechanic, specializing in transmissions and most recently employed at Transmissions Unlimited. He was the kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it. He loved his family and was devoted to his mom and his family, especially to his beautiful nieces.

Thomas’s passions were cooking; riding his dirt bike, 4-Wheeler and skateboard; using computers; playing video games; and fixing cars. He was a Jack of all trades.

Thomas was a fun-loving guy, always cutting up and laughing his wonderful laugh. He was so witty and quick. He could make an unhappy situation into something funny. He is going to be missed by all who knew and loved him.

The Celebration of Life for Thomas was be held May 13, at 11 a.m., at The Cove Church, 197 Langtree Rd., Mooresville, N.C., 28117.

In lieu of flowers please donate to Thomas Cawthra (TJ) organized by Heather L. Smith ◊
