October 6, 1990 - April 15, 2021
Our beloved brother, Tomas Girmay, was called to heaven on April 15th, 2021 at the tender age of 30. Tomas was born in Visalia, CA on October 6th, 1990 to George Afwerki Girmay And Sara Freweini Beraki, Eritrean natives who immigrated to the United States in 1987. From an early age, Tomas was a courageous and kind soul who always went the extra mile for those he cared about. He loved spending time with family and friends and playing basketball. Tomas attended Redwood High School in Visalia, California and carried his passion for basketball, playing in the PAL League and for Redwood's Varsity Team. After graduating high school in 2008, Tomas went on to pursue higher education at College of the Sequoias where he earned an Associate degree in Liberal Arts. Tomas, was a young prolific soul, with a joyful spirit and a vibrant personality to match. His smile and infectious laugh could light up any room and as a result people were naturally drawn to him. Tomas was also a hardworking man and had dreams of becoming a personal trainer and was actively working toward reaching that goal. While Tomas had many achievements, his proudest moment was the day he learned he was going to become a father. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Tomas, but most notably- the birth of his son, Xaiden, whom he regarded as his greatest pride and joy, declaring him a true "Godsend." Tomas was blessed to come from a loving family and a unique ability to find happiness in everything he did. He has touched so many lives and will truly be missed by all who had a privilege to meet him. Though the grief we feel seems insurmountable, we find comfort in knowing that one day God will reunite us, completing our family chain again. Tomas is survived by his beloved son Xaiden Girmay; parents Afwerki and Freweini; his siblings Rahwa, Solomon, Kristy and nephew Noah. Services have been entrusted to Salser & Dillard Funeral Chapel.
