Obituary for Michael Wellborn Thomas

Michael Wellborn Thomas, of Oak Park, died unexpectedly as the result of an epileptic seizure on Nov. 26, 2016. Born in San Francisco, California on June 4, 1991 to Janice Wellborn and Ross Thomas, he was always known as “Mikey.”

He graduated from Oak Park and River Forest High School in 2010 and thereafter attended Columbia College where he studied art. At the time of his death, he was working at the Robey Hotel in Wicker Park doing a job he loved. His real passion in life was art. He painted every day and saw art as his true calling.

Despite his tender years, he was achieving success, recognition, and working with other artists around the world. His art has been featured in magazines and on TV.

His other love was travel. He had an active passport from the time he was 2 years old and visited many countries around the world.

He loved his friends, of which there were many, was devoted to them, and his humor and kindness will be missed by all.

A celebration of Mikey’s life will be held on Dec. 10 from 1:30 to 5 p.m. at the Oak Park Conservatory, Garfield Street and East Avenue.
