Thomas Daniel Causey

Thomas Causey, age 71, sadly passed away on Sunday, September 18, 2022. His twin brother Richard Causey and sister Shirley Causey preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife, JoAnne, two adult children Adam and Mira, daughter-in-law Paula and grandson Seth. Additional survivors include his brothers Frank Causey (Bonnie), Kenneth Causey (Christina), Craig Causey and David Causey (Yvette), sister-in-law Bobbie Causey, brothers-in-law Mike Elder, Joe Elder, and Tim Elder, nephews Michael, Scott, Wayne, and C.J., nieces Kristina, Brenda, Susan, Carin, Elyse, and Carly.  

Thomas was employed for 16 years as a Hampton Deputy Sheriff, followed by almost 16 years at AAFES Dan Daniel Distribution Center, from which he retired. At the time of his passing, he worked for his brother Frank’s State Farm Insurance Agency. Thomas loved working with his brother Frank and sister-in-law Bonnie and had many happy memories there.  

Thomas was a member of Newmarket Baptist Church in Newport News. He loved his church family dearly. Special thanks to Pastor Skip Hathaway and his wife Sandra who have been a great comfort to the family.

Thomas was an avid Star Trek fan and Pokemon Go player (sharing many happy discussions and game time with his grandson Seth) and also making many friends along the way. His dry sense of humor and warm chuckle were two of his best attributes. He will be profoundly missed.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. at Peninsula Funeral Home.  A Memorial Service will be held following visitation at 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
