Mr. Wilkinson has a Wife Linda, 2 kids Tim Wilkinson, Wife Tonya, Amy Patterson Husband Corey with a total of 5 grand Kids ages for from 2years old to 20 years old. Emily and Hunter Wilkinson, Caleb, Colby and Avery Patterson. 

Mr. Wilkinson has had a long journey of sickness it started in 2004 with mini strokes.

Nov of 2007 he was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis in Dothan by the lung Doctors. The Doctors in Dothan told him to go enjoy the next 3 to 5 years they couldn’t help him.

But Thomas would not stop He went to Jacksonville Mayo Clinic. They worked with him for 5 years trying different medicines. They turned him down for a transplant in 2010. 

In May of 2012 Thomas went to Shands UF in Gainesville Fla. They did a lot of testing and decided to put him on the transplant list Thomas was on 12 liters of oxygen leaving Dothan for transplant, 3 WEEKS later on May 22, 2012 We got the phone call they had him a lung on May 23, 2012 at around 2:00 pm He had his new Lung and a New LIFE .  After some set backs with the new lung, the doctors told us he would be placed on the lung transplant list again, and will remain in the hospital until he gets another lung.  On February 4, 2013 we got a phone call that they had him a new lung!  After being in the hospital for a total of 180 days, he is on his way home!!!  Thomas gives GOD ALL THE GORLY for the lung and more time with his Family. 

We as a Family want to THANK everyone for their prayers. Thomas is Owner of Dothan Pest Control. We want to thank all of our customers for prayer and for the time we were out of town and standing by us. 

Thomas is a retired Dothan Fire Captain . We want to thank the whole Fire Department for all the phone calls, prayers and cards. It is a awesome feeling to still be part of the Family. 

Thanks to Rickey Stokes And Ricky Stokes news for letting friends and family now how Thomas was doing. 

Thank GOD that we are ALL back at home in Dothan Together again for a long time. 

We have seen prayer work and we have felt the LOVE of our Dothan Family and Friends.
