Thomas G. Aldridge, 58, passed away Saturday, June 9, 2018 at North Woods Village in Kokomo. Thomas was born on April 28, 1960, in Kokomo to the late Hershel E. and Jennie (Pratt) Aldridge.
Thomas was born with Down Syndrome, but that never prevented him from living life to the fullest every day. He earned his high school diploma, and eventually found employment at Bona Vista Rehabilitation Center in Kokomo, where he worked for 20 years. He enjoyed all types of art, as well as listening to country music and anything by Elvis. His favorite time of year was Christmas season, and he loved portraying Santa Claus. Thomas was most happy whenever he had the opportunity to socialize with people, and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Thomas is survived by his siblings, Jennie Ferguson, Melvin Aldridge, Katherine Suttles, Herbert Aldridge, and Debra Holloway, and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, Thomas was preceded in death by his brothers, Donald and Earl Aldridge, and a sister, Barbara Aldridge.
There will be a visitation for Thomas from 11 a.m. to 3p.m. Wednesday, June 13, at Sunset Memory Garden Funeral Home, with a funeral service immediately following.
Thomas' family requests that memorial contributions be made to Bona Vista Rehabilitation Center, Kokomo.
