 As God consoles our spirits and comforts, he willed his beloved servant, Thomas Myers into eternal life on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. Thomas was the eldest of six children born to his proud parents, the late John “Bubba” and Hattie Parker Myers on May 12, 1934, in Pinewood, South Carolina. He received his educa4on in the Clarendon County Public School System. Thomas was reared in a Chris4an environment. At an early age, he accepted Christ for a personal savior. He worshipped at Mt. Pleasant RMUE Church in Pinewood, SC. He later moved to Wilmington, NC and gained employment in the shipyards for several years. Thomas then relocated to Paterson, NJ where he was employed with Dell Construc4on Company. After leaving Paterson, he relocated to New-ark, NJ where he was employed by the Department of Sanita4on for Newark and also worked as a gas station attendant. Thomas worshipped at the Fellowship Missionary Bap4st Church, where he served as a Deacon under the leadership of Elton Byrd in Newark. After re4ring, he returned home to Pinewood where he purchased a home and reunited with the Mt. Pleasant RMUE Church. Before his health failed, Thomas served faithfully as a Trustee, a choir member, an usher, and the church handy-man. On any given day, you could find Thomas cutting the grass at the church cemetery, making repairs to the church, replacing light bulbs and doing whatever was needed to help with the upkeep of the church. He loved his church, and on Monday mornings, he faithfully drove to the bank to make the church deposits. Thomas had a flair for clothes and loved to dress. He had shoes in every color. He was a jokester, a very outspoken man and he loved cars. He had a passion for the elderly and would assist some of his older friends with household chores. In his earlier years, he loved to travel and entertain. Thomas married the late Ida Freeman on May 23, 1990, in Newark, NJ. There were no children from this union.
