Thomas was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he attended Forest Hills Public Schools. He was passionate about music, amazingly artistic, had a magic green thumb in his garden and a deep unconditional love for animals of all kinds. He was a kind, gentle soul and touched many lives with his words of wisdom in deep conversations, and his multiple talents with music and instruments.

He is survived by his Grandmother Patrice Bruwer-Miller (Robert), his Mother Abbi Rubbelke (Jason), his Fiance Rebekah Pickett, his sister Brittney Bueschel (Russ Cooper), brothers; Darien Carpentier and Dillon Carpentier, his step-siblings; Ethan McGhee, Dakota Rubbelke, Melody Rubbelke, and Melia Rubbelke. He is also survived by several aunts, uncles and cousins, his dog Ein, as well as a great group of close friends, all of whom will miss him dearly.
A memorial service is being arranged for a future date in the Spring. Details to follow.
