House of Thomas Funeral Home began in the mind of God even before its owner was born. Growing up the vision was planted in the mind of a young boy, who along with his cousins, conducted imaginary funerals. The boy grew up into a young man, continuing with the desire to help people and live out his dream of being a funeral director.
While studying at the University of South Carolina in Columbia he inquired to a family friend Rene Carter a resident of Columbia at that time about working at a funeral home. She guided him to E. Perry Palmer owner of Johnson’s Funeral Home. E. Perry Palmer hired him and began to instruct him on the professional duties of the funeral business. This sealed the idea that he could own his own funeral home. He later entered Gupton Jones College of Funeral Service in Atlanta, Ga. and after graduating, served as an apprentice under E Perry Palmer at Palmer’s Memorial Chapel and J. P. Holly Funeral Home in Columbia, S.C. Relocating back to Dillon in 1987 and obtaining further experience he served under William Penn Troy at Troy’s Funeral Home in Mullins, S.C.
Kevin Thomas obtained financial backing from his father Tyrone Thomas and then father In-Law Robert Wilson. The House of Thomas Funeral Home was established at 300 S. 2’ Ave on April 3, 1989. The first year in business they served 15 families and in September of 1992 purchased the building at its present location. 300 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Dillon, SC.
