Tymearne Thomas

February 14, 2002 ~ May 31, 2020 (age 18)


Tymearne Lemek'e Thomas went home to be with the Lord on March 31, 2020. He was born February 14, 2002 to Robin Bland Young and Tyrone Gee Thomas with Kenneth Young residing father in the home. He was the middle child of a blended family of 6 children and a true "Valentines Day Baby". 

Tymearne was affectionately known to his friends as "TY" but to his family as "Shookie Daddy".  He was educated in the Guilford County School system. He attended The College Prep and Leadership Academy charter school for his middle education because his mother always wanted the best for her son. Tymearne was apart of the graduating class of 2020 from T.W. Andrews High School, where he was well known for his ability to make anyone laugh. Tymearne was a "Gentle Giant" and with that loving and amusing personality it allowed him to acquire friends near or far.

Tymearne decided to march at his own beat at birth and was the baby to everyone being that he was the first boy of his family. Those who knew Tymearne, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives because he really had the ability to control the emotions in the room. He had a way with words to make you laugh or always finding a way to rustle your feathers in any situation. Tymearne had plans on getting a new car to travel once his graduation was completed. He was an avid lover of sports and played for the Oakview Cowboys recreational football team in High Point, North Carolina for Coach Travis Steele. Tymearne also loved playing his PlayStation 4 and would play online to win against people worldwide playing 2k20. His favorite team to choose playing Madden was the Atlanta Falcons. 

Next to sports he was true lover of his family and friends and was the happiest when he was around them. Tymearne would always find a way to make a joke or be down to travel all over just to be near people. He loved working with his hands such as cutting grass, moving furniture or working on things to build.  His family and friends meant more to him than anything never ending a conversation without a hug or saying "I love you". There was never a dull moment when Tymearne was around with his comical personality and big smile which made him the center of all family events. 

He leaves to cherish his loving memory his father Tyrone G. Thomas of Bennettsville, SC; mother Robin Bland Young and Kenneth Young of the home; four sisters, Qualesha (Kendrick) Bland of Union City, GA, Tyneka Thomas of Bennettsville, SC, Nakya Young and Kanera Young of High Point, NC; one brother of the home Kenneth Young Jr.; two nephews Eli Bland and Kendrick McLain Jr. of Union City, GA; maternal grandparents Larry Ford and Elizabeth (Roger) Bland of Bennettsville, SC; maternal grandfather proceeding in death Ronald Shelton of Newark, NJ; paternal grandparents proceeding him in death, Gloria Thomas and Matthew Gee of Bennettsville, SC; a great-great grandmother, Maggie Bland of Bennettsville, SC; five aunts Shelean Bland of Lexington, NC, Danielle (Lenny) Byrd and Sade Bland of Covington, GA, Talisha Dixon of High Point, NC, and Latoya (Cormarrie) Miller of Greensboro, NC; three uncles Cornelius Thomas and Pedro Davila of Bennettsville, SC, Caliph (Robin) Bland of High Point, NC.
