George was the youngest child to Ollie Lee and Ilene Thomas. He had two sisters, Judy and Janie. George was raised in the then small town of Tomball, Texas and enjoyed the closeness of a large number of family and friends.

In High school he followed his father in playing football and his mother playing in the band where he played the Tuba. Corey, Georges son would in the future also play football at Tomball. George would marry Vickie, and two sons Christopher and Corey would become part of the large Thomas family.

Georges father was badly burned in the 1970s and George took on the family business of the Texaco bulk plant and Texaco Station. He delivered gas to the local farms in the area. In 1985 Georges parents retired and George and Debbie married in 1986. They remained in Tomball with George working at Tomball Ford and wife Debbie working at Tomball Hospital.

Chris Thomas worked in Tomball and then entered the Airforce. Corey continued school in Tomball and graduated from Baylor University. George was so very proud of his boys and very excited about their journey in life.
