Paul Thomas was a larger-than-life person. 

A military veteran, he dedicated his career to Law Enforcement, and after retirement he organized and ran a rehabilitation program for ex-offenders.

A tribal historian, he was also a "true gentleman." He was in the melee at the Cherokee Nation courthouse... photos exist of him swinging his cane during the riot incited by Chief Joe Byrd's supporters.

He passed away Sept. 21 2006 of natural causes. He was 87.

He was a man with the gift of Charity.
