Obituary

Queennie Eugene Thomas (Gene) was born June 29, 1933 in Pittsburg, Texas to Ess and Varrie McKinney Thomas. He departed his earthly life on Friday, January 1, 2021 at the age of 87. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Florine, siblings Jessie Mack, Ernestine Bearden, Louie B., Marie Thomas, Jimmy C. and Vernell Thomas. Gene’s early life was spent in Pittsburg Tx. with his family where he attended Frederick Douglass High School. Being independent and strong-willed, he enrolled in the U. S. Navy in 1952 where he proudly served his country for thirty (30) years receiving an honorable discharge. His professional performance, military behavior and appearance were described as excellent by his Commander. His leadership and supervisory abilities gained him exceptional loyalty from his men.
Gene traveled extensively and lived throughout the country continuing his love of life and learning. He attended Dallas County Community College, trained as a barber and studied Spanish. He returned to his hometown in his later years and utilized his culinary skills to serve the senior citizens of his community. He married Ms. Florine Smith who preceded him in death. They were faithful members of the Rocky Mound COGIC in Rocky Mound, Texas.
A devoted husband, father to his biological and step-children, brother and friend, he was so much more to the people who knew him. Gentle, giving, warm-hearted, and kind are only a few words to describe his nature. He had his own style of dress and was meticulous in everything he did. Always ready with a laugh or a smile, he brought joy to his family and friends. Some of his life treasures were cooking, playing Bingo and watching old time western tv shows, especially those with the actor John Wayne!
Left to cherish his fond memories are two daughters, Olivia Ridley of New York City and Heather Caston of Winston-Salem NC; son, Michael Thomas (Anita) of Milwaukee Wisc.; grands and great-grands, Tyler E. Ridley, Lacqueenna Caston (Elijah & Elysia), Lactrinna Caston (Eric & Lelani), Lactrenton Caston, Lacquinton Caston, and Michael & Micala Thomas; Sister Essie Armstrong of Dallas Tx, two brothers Plural B. Thomas (Eloise) and Elder Mainer H. Thomas (Billie Jo) of Milwaukee, Wisc., and a host of other relatives and friends.
