Wayne K Thomas

January 1, 1930 — December 21, 2018

Wayne Kingsley Thomas entered into eternal rest on Friday, December 21, 2018. 

Born in Paterson and raised in Quakerton, NJ, Wayne is a graduate of Flemington High School, and New York University.  He served our country in the United States Air Force.  Wayne began his career as a successful insurance salesman before making the switch to real estate.  In the late 1960’s, he started his own real estate business in North Arlington, NJ.  After moving to Bloomfield in 1974, Wayne opened one of the first Century 21 franchises in the area; Century 21 Wayne K. Thomas Realtors. Never once could he be found without his famous Century 21 gold jacket or Century 21 tie, which he wore proudly until retiring in 2000!  During his active real estate career, Wayne also served as the President of the Bloomfield Board of Realtors, and remained an active member until recent years.  He was also a member and former President of the Kearny Optimist Club.  An avid gardener, Wayne was known for his yearly vegetable garden and fruit trees which he generously shared with neighbors.  When he wasn’t busy selling homes or working in his garden, Wayne was happiest when spending time with his family. 

Wayne is survived by his wife Linda of 44 years. Daughters Barbara Siembab, Donna Simone, Jeanette McCleery and Cynthia Thomas.  Sons Gordon Thomas and Glen Thomas.  He is also survived by 9 Grandchildren, Carson McCleery, Kenneth McCleery, Jennifer Bernal, Mark Siembab, David Simone, Dana Simone, Laura Thomas, Jonathan Thomas and Jenny Thomas; and 7 Great Grandchildren, Cameron Bowers, Allison Bowers, Benjamin McCleery, Maya McCleery, Karina Bernal, Siena Bernal, and Marlie Bernal, as well as many nieces and nephews.
