12/5/1916 - 5/21/2019 OBITUARY
William H. Thomas, 102 of New Hyde Park, NY passed peacefully on the morning of May 21, 2019. A loving husband, father, uncle, grandfather and great-grandfather, he has left an indelible footprint on the lives of so many. He will long be remembered for his wit, his smile, his laughter, his enthusiasm, his strength and boundless energy, his always positive outlook, and his stories. Oh, so many stories. He served in World War II and spent much of his life working for Grumman in security where he ultimately retired. He had one daughter, Jean who passed away in November of 2009. He leaves behind three grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, one niece and one nephew, not to mention the infinite number of friends and family. Married thrice, William has had the dubious honor of bringing three separate families in his lifetime together as one. He was a long-time resident of New Hyde Park and a member of the First Presbyterian Church.
