In Loving Memory | William Thomas | 1947-2009

william_thomas_hollenbeck_white_house_peace_park_04-20-2007William (“Doubting”) Thomas, born March 20, 1947, who has been vigiling outside the White House since June 3, 1981 for Wisdom, Honesty, Truth, Justice, and Global Nuclear Disarmament, died this morning after a long illness and a year-long government stay-away order from Lafayette Park.

Concepcion Picciotto, his 27-year vigiling partner, needs friendship and help.

There will be a special memorial for Thomas in Lafayette Park at noon on March 20th, Thomas’s 62nd birthday.  We hope you can come.

I need your help in spreading the word.  Please send me emails with your favorite anecdotes about Thomas.

Thomas was very ill for the past two years, and I believe he is glad to be at peace now.

  1. I met this man when I visited D.C on April 27th 2008, I can’t believe he passed away, I will cherish the pictures I took and his message.

  2. Thank you for posting this important information. I posted a brief summary of Thomas’ life at my site, http://www.JosephRoss.net.

    Many Thanks, Joseph Ross
