Thomas Joseph Queena, 81, of Moncton, passed away at The Moncton Hospital on Saturday, May 7, 2022. Born in Swampscott, Mass, U.S., he was the son of the late Anthony and Mary (Coyne) Queena.

Thomas retired as a dedicated, loyal salesman for Eastern Bakeries and was a longtime member of St. Bernard’s Roman Catholic Church. He served as Coast Guardsman for the United States Coast Guard on the USCGC McCulloch and attended the US Coast Guard Academy studying LORAN - long range hyperbolic navigation systems.

Adored by his wife, his children and grandchildren. He was kind, thoughtful  and witty. Thomas was a man of deep faith.

Travel was a love of his, especially when it included visiting his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed soaking up the sun in the Dominican Republic, the beaches of Florida, canoeing, and throwing his grandkids off the floating dock into Lake Winniepesaukee. Thomas attended may NHL hockey games in FL, MA and TX with family and friends.

Thomas was known for making the absolute best Italian meatballs and sauce.

Many will remember him for flooding the backyard in winter to make a skating rink for his children and their friends.

As an avid cyclist, he was dedicated to training on his bicycle in his home gym.

A regular at Tim Hortons, he enjoyed socializing with family and friends. Thomas passionately cheered on his hockey team, the Boston Bruins. He spent many hours having conversations with his family via Facetime.

He will be greatly missed by his loving wife, Jean Queena of Moncton, New Brunswick; his daughter, Jeannette Queena Kos (Steve) of Flower Mound, Texas; his sons, Thomas E. Queena (Patty Dumont) of Manchester, New Hampshire; and Paul Queena (Lisa Bertin) of Oviedo, Florida. Grandchildren include Sydney and Rachel Kos of Flower Mound, Texas; Camille, Luca and Nico of Manchester, New Hampshire and Tony Queena of Oviedo, Florida. He is also survived by several sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, and extended family.

In addition to his parents, his sister Eileen (Queena) Ryan and brother-in-law Lawrence Ryan preceded him in death. 

Visitation will be held at Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (506-858-1995) on Wednesday, May 18, from 7-9 p.m. A Funeral Liturgy will be held from the Fergusons Funeral Home Chapel on Thursday, May 19, at 1 p.m. A reception will be held following the service.
