Radford "Rad" Thomas Thoman

October 2, 1964 ~ September 4, 2022 (age 57)


Radford, Rad, Rad Daddy Thoman, age 57, was welcomed into God’s loving arms September 4, 2022. He was born October 2, 1964 to the late Dr. Rex and Joyce Thoman. Rad grew up in a large loving family and enjoyed being surrounded by those that meant the most to him.

Rad had an enormous heart and would do anything for those he loved. He was a fun loving, free spirit who was always in for a good time. Rad was an entertainer in his own right, always making others laugh, whether with him or at him.

Rad had much success during his 27 years of employment at Atkins Elegant Desserts, where he met his wife Shelli, whom he married in 1995. They had two children together, Fallon and Conrad to whom Rad dedicated much time and love. In the past five years, Rad was building a new career as a Project Manager with Performance Services of Indiana. This was a challenge, but Rad was never afraid of a good challenge. Other than family, Rad enjoyed fishing, golfing and just being outdoors. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him!

Survivors include his wife, Shelli; daughter, Fallon; son, Conrad; siblings, Reg Thoman (Linda), Scott Thoman, Jenny Whaley (Rich), Tim Thoman (Cathy), Steve Thoman (Michelle); sisters and brothers-in-law, Kathy Thoman, Kris and Jeff Facsko, and Brett Conrad; 17 nieces and nephews; 7 great nieces and nephews; and dear friends, Pat Atkins and Linda Kessler and family.

 A Celebration of Life Mass will be held at 5 pm, Tuesday, September 13, 2022, in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, 14598 Oak Ridge Road, Carmel.

Rad requested that his final resting place be in Canada, where he shared many fond memories with his dad, siblings, nephews, and friends. 

In lieu of flowers, consider donating to a go fund me page that honors Rad’s loving and generous heart. The funds will be used by his family to perform random acts of kindness in his memory.

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come!”  2 Corinthians 5:17
