Olusegun Dada Thomas, “Segun”, of Somerset, NJ, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 16, 2021, in New Brunswick, NJ. He was 62 years old.

Segun was born in Ibadan, Nigeria, to Mr. Ibikunle Thomas and Mrs. Comfort Thomas, both of blessed memories.

After his high school education at Ibadan Grammar School, Segun proceeded to the United States of America in 1981. He studied accounting at Rutgers University from where he graduated with excellent academic credentials.

After graduating from Rutgers, Segun worked for a number of multinational companies before deciding to strike out on his own as self-employed accountant.

Segun lived in Somerset, NJ, and was very active in the Nigerian American community in NJ and adjacent states.

A devout and faithful Christian, Segun lived his life to the fullest through simple pleasures. He had the ability to reach people in deep and positive ways.

Segun was a committed husband, a dedicated father, a loving sibling, and a loyal friend. He will be remembered by people who crossed paths with him for his sense of humor, his generous and jovial nature, and his free spirit.

Segun is survived by his wife, Funmilayo Mojisola; sons, Larry and Sean Thomas; daughter, Adriel Thomas; brothers, Bunmi Thomas and Babatunde Thomas; sisters, Wemimo Okunnowo, Tomilola Oye, and Bukola Adumasi; and many friends.

In our hearts, Segun’s light may be dimmed by his sudden passing but that light will never go out.

Segun will be greatly missed.

Visitation will be held on Friday, January 29th from 6-8 PM at the Gleason Funeral Home, 1360 Hamilton Street, Somerset. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 30th at the funeral home from 9 to 11 AM. Burial to follow in Franklin Memorial Park, North Brunswick.
