Thomas Ray Drinkard
08/20/1964 - 03/04/2017

Born on august 20th 1964 to Beverly N. Drinkard and Milton R. Drinkard at cottonwood hospital in Salt Lake City Utah. Was diagnosed at the age of 9 with diabetes and told by doctors that he might not make it till he was 20. He proved the doctors wrong and he had a wonderful life full of ups and downs. One up was the birth of his son Johnny Lee Drinkard and his daughter Stevie N. Hurley both of whom survived him. The hardest down he faced was the divorce from his wife but he persevered and kept going with the help of friends and family. He would always call His best friend of over 40 years just to talk and relieve the stress he was under especially after his parents passed. He was happy when his son got married and he liked the new family he was now a part of. He passed away on march 4th 2017 in his home due to a major medical event and went undiscovered until his family had come to check on him. He is no longer in pain and he no longer needs insulin to stay healthy. He is with his parents and his beloved kitty.
"Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."
You will be missed by family and friends. Rest easy for the troubles are over.

Thomas Ray Drinkard was a loving father, brother, grandfather, and best friend. Thomas had a huge heart. My father was a good man was like most family's we had our problems bit no matter what I loved my dad. He has three beautiful grandchildren than unfortunately he didn't get to meet but I know has looking down on all his loved one's and smiling with my grandparents and his kitty patches. I love you dad your heart will forever be near mine.
O Lord, God of my salvation when at night, I cry out in your presence let my prayer come before you; incline your ear to my cry. Psalm 88:1-2

I didn't know Thomas long, but I knew him to be a quiet, loving father to Johnny. When my daughter Liz, married Johnny, he welcomed her to the family. He loved them both and when he was a guest in my home, he was always gracious and grateful to be included in our activities. He always said I Love You to Johnny at the end of a phone conversation and was always there to help when he could. He will be missed.

I didn't get the opportunity to know you very long, but when I married johnny you welcomed me with open arms as part of your family and I am so grateful for that. Not a day went by that johnny didn't tell me how much he loved you and how great a dad you were. You would text him just to see how things were going and just to tell him you loved him
You will be missed.

My Hero

March 4
When I was younger my dad was my hero. He was my hero because like all little girls our dad is our first love. Most children whil as babys their firs word is dada. My dad may have had his problems but who didnt. My dad protected my brother and I. Again my hero. As I sit today and ponder I wonder how my hero is up in heaven weather he is telling all our lovedones stories or if he is watching over Johnny and I. You see im 32 years old and my dad is always my hero. https://youtu.be/sR-1ggqyEIE?si=FOLKnUCfJxdbkOR3 daddys hands by Holly Dunn.
