John Thomas

September 28, 1939 — October 31, 2022

East Windsor, NJ

On the picturesque morning of October 30, 2022, as the beautiful sun shone through the colorful fall leaves in the wooded area behind his home, John Thomas began his daily walk there, into what John always referred to as his “paradise”, his “heaven on earth”.  That was the place he would spend hours and hours each day, admiring the simple, but wonderous gift of nature that he was so in awe of and so grateful to have…the place he would thank God each and every day for, with tears of joy in his eyes…the place he would choose to be (if given the choice) when God called him home from his mortal journey.

God granted John that wish - and while our hearts are heavy with sadness and loss; there is also great joy in knowing that he was exactly where he wanted to be.

John was 83 years old, and has left his “heaven on earth” in the loving hands of the many friends and family members who filled his heart with joy - his wife, Zenaida; his son, John Jr. and wife, Heather; his daughter, Wendeanne and husband, David Satterlee; his granddaughters, Emilyanne & Melanie Pongracz and Summer & Cheyenne Thomas; his great granddaughters, Chloe & Harper Norman; and his sister, Bernadine Koppel.  John also cherished his extended family - Julio Negron, his wife, Bruny, and their children Mark Anthony and Luis; in addition to Mildred Mercado and her children Erica, Justin & Jonathan, and Justin’s son, Elijah.

Please join us in celebrating the life of John Thomas - and his big smile that will now be accompanying the glorious sun shining through the leaves on those beautiful trees, now...and forever.

Funeral Services for John are under the respectful direction and care of Matthew J. Freeman, Manager of Aftercare Cremation Service, 729, state route 18, East Brunswick, NJ 08816.
