Anthony Thomas Obituary

Anthony Quinn Thomas was born June 03, 1974, to the late Milton and Martha P. Thomas in New Castle County- Wilmington, Delaware. He departed this life on November 3, 2023, in his home.

At an early age Anthony, better known as “Tony” was seen not just as a child of two loving parents, but rather was the manifestation of a promise. A promise to older brother Milton Thomas Jr. Tony was odd in his own way in that he saw beauty where most would only see ugliness, peace where most saw chaos and joy where most would have been sad. Tony quite frankly, was the light which first shows in the early morning brining with it feelings of a better day ahead. Tony rejected the idea of a persons worth was tied to their socio-economic standing. He believed that everyone was deserving of grace and mercy. Tony was a fun-loving child who followed his older brother around and the two rarely separated. At least until, Tony broke tradition and joined the US Army instead of the US Marine Corps. He served his country proudly which in turn built upon his already strong fondation as a man and made it possible for him to be a husband, father, and friend. Even in his final days he continued to be a shining example of those qualities which make up a man; faith, perseverance, dedication, dependability and love. Tony was not just some man who worked hard for himself, rather his selfless example is the reason for many others success. All you need to do is look at the company Tony kept and you will see that his impact was genuine and lasting. He will be greatly missed...

He leaves to cherish his memories, 2 sons, Justin Anthony Thomas and Jonathan Quinn Thomas. Additionally, he has one brother, Milton Thomas Jr. and three sisters Tonya, Gwen and Kim. He was blessed enough to have one grandchild; Santana Crislee Thomas and a host of other loving relatives and friends. There were many people whom Tony looked at as being his family, too many to name, but please know that he talked of you all often and you each held a special place in her heart.

He Ain’t Heavy.....

... The road is long

With many a winding turn

That leads us to who knows where, who knows where But I'm strong

Strong enough to carry him

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

... So on we go

His welfare is of my concern

No burden is he to bear

We'll get there

... For I know

He would not encumber me

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

... If I'm laden at all

I'm laden with sadness

That everyone's heart

Isn't filled with the gladness

Of love for one another

... It's a long, long road

From which there is no return

While we're on the way to there

Why not share?

... And the load

Doesn't weigh me down at all

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

... He's my brother

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He ain't heavy, he's my brother
