"A kinder gentleman ....
Some will record the fact that Jno.
T. Th'ome, whose passing on Friday,
June 14, has saddened the heart of
everyone who knew him, was a fore
most citizen of the County of Pitt
and the State of North Carolina; some
will speak of him as a man of vision,
of his astute mind, and of his fear
less pioneering in agricultural and
business realms; others vfill recount
instances when his rare judgment and
unswerving loyalty to principle sav
ed the day, and of his domination of
many situations by the sheer force
of his personality.
His delightful companionship, his
remarkable sense of stewardship,
boundless energy, resourcefulness,
fidelity to trust, noble ambitions, ar
dent championship of the cause of
education and hi? 'sagacity in spiri
tual things will be recalled and point
ed out by friends for years to come,
and rightly so, few men have achiev
ed the marked degree of success in
as many important fields of endeavor
as did Jno. T. Thome.
I shall remember him as Shake
speare might have described him, "A
kinder gentleman treads not the
earth," for he was a gentlem&n in
every sense of the word. My knowl
edge of his innate kindness, s ana
gentleiflanly qualities was gained by
my being close at hand from early
childhood. During the many inter
vening years in which I knew him as
a next-door neighbor and friend, I
neither recall his ever raising his
voice in anger or indignation, nor
remember hearing him speak ill of
any man. I never knew him to be
guilty of the slightest act of dis
courtesy towards anyone, whether he
trod the high road or the low road.
He was entirely free of all personal
bitterness. He put the best con
struction on every action and his
mind was untinged by prejudices.
Yes, I knew him as a man who kept
before his eyes a vision of the kindly
King of men and sought the might
of will with which .to follow him.
His kindness knew no bounds. Pos
sessing a mind acutely respodsive to
distress, he was ever willing to lay
aside his own deeply engrossing af
fairs, and lend his counsel. No
problem was too small to merit his
grave consideration '
One of the most amiable of men,
possessing a natural dignity and
simplicity of taste and manner, and
He wu anointed above Ma feilows
with tee oil of good humor and he
had as irrepressible youthfulneea of
heart. Theee kept Ma vision true and
hie mind sweet. He did net think it
in any way demeaning to Ma dignity
to ahaie a good anecdote or indulge
in a bit of good-humored chaff. It
waa a good humor that was infectious
and sent you away with a lightness
of heart and atop. You ware glad
that you met Jno. T. Thome on the
street teat morning and saw the
twinkle in his eye and the beam of a
smile play over his' countenance, and
you tried to pass it on to the next
friend you met and to walk teat day,
too, on the sunny side of tee street.
Yea, his achievements and his vir
tues are all worthy of chronicle; but
when in the course of time these have
become somewhat dimmed, I teall
still have with me my early recollec
tions of his being a kindly gentle-,
