In Memory of Earl Thomas, Jr.

Quick Search


“Earl Thomas, Jr. of City Island, New York, passed away on May 2nd 2009 after a courageous and valiant fight against prostate cancer. He was 44 years old. Earl had an infectious exuberance for life and a wonderful sense of humor. He also had a rare devotion to his large family and was a wonderful son, brother and uncle.

I believe Earl was the best informed non-medical person I have ever known due to this organization.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

In lieu of flowers or gifts please make contributions to PCRI in Earl’s memory.”


The Prostate Cancer Research Institute mission is to improve the quality of men’s lives by supporting research and disseminating information that educates and empowers patients, families and the medical community.

PCRI is certified as “Best in America” by Independent Charities of America.
