The burial was preceded by a wake at his C26 Mahaji Street, Kudenda, Kaduna on Wednesday January 29, 2020 and another wake at his residence in Uzzeba, Ulleha, Owan West LGA of Edo state on Thursday January 30, 2020.

The wake held at his country home in Uzzeba, Ulleha, Owan West LGA, Edo state, on January 30, 2020, had in attendance more than five hundred sympathisers from different parts of the country, including a Blueprint delegation, led by Sales Circulation Manager, Mr Simon Yusuf.

Lamenting the sudden death of her husband in a tribute, his wife, Mrs Omolola Thomas, said she would greatly miss his presence, but took solace in God to take care of them.

“I don’t know what to say. I can’t just comprehend you left me so soon. You were a kind hearted man. You feared God and gave me confidence. You thought me to be strong and stand firm. I never knew you were teaching me for a time like this. You were a man of the people. You wanted everyone around you to be happy. I miss those smiles you always gave me. Rest on till we meet on resurrection day,” she said.

During the funeral service held on January 31, 2020, at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Fountain of Light Zone, Edo Province 12, Uzzeba, Owan West LGA, Edo state, the zonal pastor, Omon-Zogie Ighodalo, said that those that Thomas left behind should take solace in the fact that he is presently with God in heaven.

“Thomas is presently in the mansion where God promised us in the Bible. A time will come on earth when there will no longer be funeral processions. It is normal to lose someone, but we should not grieve enormously. That would be like telling God that you don’t appreciate his preparing a better place for your loved ones,” he said.

The remains of late Mr Thomas Imoniche Joseph was committed to mother earth exactly at 12:45pm on Friday, January 31, 2020, with family members, friends and associates promising to emulate his good life while on earth.
