The411 with Sherlene Shanklin: I just spoke to the brother of Louisville native and very prominent artist Eugene Thomas. He passed away Monday and his family knew that he was so loved in the community that they wanted to let everyone know of his passing. The Central High School graduate and Vietnam War Veteran made his mark in the community along with his wife CJ Fletcher with their wonderful works of art.
Thomas passed away on Monday July 28, 2014 at the age of 62. A celebration of his life will be held Thursday July 31, at the A D Porter & Sons funeral home at 13th and Chestnut Street. I called the funeral home and they tell me that the visitation will be from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
