C.M. Thomason

A memorial service for C.M. Thomason, 67, of Somerville was Wednesday, Nov. 12, at Hartselle Heritage Funeral Home Chapel.
Mr. Thomason, who was known as “Mr. T” by his students, died Monday, Nov. 10, 2008, at Crestwood Hospital in Huntsville.
He was a graduate of Cotaco High School and the former Florence State Teachers College (now UNA) and was well known as a Morgan County educator. Teaching was the only job he ever held or wanted. For 37 years, he instructed generations of Tennessee Valley children in science, history and life. He ended his career as a teacher at Union Hill Middle School.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Conway “Red” Thomason and Kathleen Thomason.
He was a student of history as well as a teacher, a patriot and a passionate believer in the philosophy and wisdom of the nation’s founding fathers and their far-seeing vision of America.
His life view may be found in the Albert Einstein quote, “A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectively on sympathy, education and social relationships; no religious basis is necessary. Man should indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear or punishment and hope of reward after death.”
He is survived by his beloved wife, Nancy Hunt of Somerville; two sons, Terry Thomason of Somer-ville and Chuck Thomason of Birming-
ham; a daughter, Jennifer Moran of Athens; four grandchildren; a niece, Larisa Thomason of New Hope; a nephew, Mark Thomason of Priceville; and two brothers, Larry Thomason of Destin, Fla. and Ricky Thomason of Decatur.
In lieu of flowers and in honor of his lifelong goal of the education of the masses, the family respectfully requests donations be made in his name to the Wheeler Basin Regional Library.
Those who knew him can appreciate that, once, speaking on his own wake, Mr. T said, “Flowers would make it seem too much like a funeral.”
