    Hey I know it’s been almost two years since his passing but I was unaware. I met Thomas at Yosemite M.S. We were very very good friends; like brothers. We ran track together and graduated McLane High School Class of 1986. My condolences to his family. Love you, Bro. R.I.P.

    I don’t know him, never met or worked with him, but as a felow peace officer and a family man, I don’t have to have any one-on-one contact with Officer Thomas to feel the pain of his family right now. The pain of and a loss to one law enforcement officer is the same pain and loss to all of us. Rest in peace bro, rest in peace, until we meet again.

    It’s always terrible to lose one of our own. He fought a long fight, but he didn’t do it alone. I know all his brothers and sisters at KVSP came together to assist him and his family. Acosta will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace, brother.

    Officer Thomas was a dedicated and reliable Officer at KVSP and will be missed by all those he came in contact with both at and away from work. RIP brother. Prayers are going forth for family and friends.
