For those of you that do not know, Owen Thomas was in a terrible car accident on Saturday, June 22, 2019, and he passed away on impact. He was only 17 years old with a full-time job at Niffers. He would have been going into his senior year at Dadeville High School. He was in the band, and he enjoyed playing the drums. He always had a kind heart and was the best person to be around. God only knows why he took him from us this early in life. For those that do not know, Owen wanted to graduate, go into the army to become a diesel mechanic where he would have a devoted career and eventually retire.
