Birmingham, AL (Nov. 7, 2019) — Singing News has learned that Jim Thrasher of The Thrasher Brothers passed away the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 6, surrounded by family.
The following is taken from a statement posted by his son Alan:
Last night Jim Thrasher passed on to Heaven to be with Jesus…. My father was a man who loved life and lived three men’s worth of lifetimes in his one. He influenced so many people through his spread of the Gospel and in the motorcoach industry. He is one of those giant’s shoulders we stand upon to build our future.
He sang to the kids before he drifted off. I had a chance to look him in the eye and say thanks for everything. He praised Jesus and thanked God for a blessed life that has come to an end. He died knowing he was loved.
[These are] my thoughts tonight. Love your parents. Love your children. Love each other. Celebrate life; don’t be sad for those that lived fully.
I loved my Dad. I will miss him. Good night, Dad.
Funeral arrangements for Jim Thrasher are being handled by Jefferson Memorial Gardens, 1591 Gadsden Hwy. (Hwy. 11), Birmingham, AL, 35235. Visitation will be Monday, Nov. 11, at 1:00 p.m., followed by a service at 2:00 p.m.
Please remember the family in prayer.
