September 23, 1966 - April 5, 2021
Obituary Kevin Anthony Thomas aka “David Ruffin” was 54 years old when he was called home. He was born on September 23, 1966 to the late Deborah Thomas-Leach and Walter Leach at DC General Hospital in Washington, DC. He was well-known and loved in the District of Columbia and Prince George’s County areas. Kevin was a well-dressed man with his own unique style that could be spotted from a block away. He was known for keeping his hair tight and his gear right. When people saw him stepping on the scene they would say “There goes Kevin Thomas!” He touched the hearts of many because of his bubbly and upbeat personality. He often cracked jokes and made people laugh. Kevin was a spiritual man that believed in God and was a member of Mathews Memorial Baptist church in Southeast DC. In his free time, Kevin loved to read the bible, dance, and listen to Rare Essence Go-Go band. In his younger days, Kevin was the lead man on the mic in a Go-Go band called “The Oasis”. He was accompanied by his childhood friends Timmy, Raymond, Kenny, Jimmy, Steve, Jeff, Eric and Joe. Kevin was a man with many skills. He was a barber, cook and a supervisor for the Salvation Army. Losing him was sudden and unexpected. His passing has been a great lost to us but a gain to God. One thing we know for certain is that Kevin is watching and protecting all of us, just as God protected him until he was called home. Kevin Thomas was survived by 10 children: Keartta, Kevea, Kevin, Kellee, Ka’Lesha, KaE’Isha, Darnell, Melvin, Michael, and Marcia. He is also survived by 31 grandchildren, 2 son-in-law’s, 3 daughter-in-law’s, one uncle, many cousins, the love of his life Dee Dee and a host of friends. Kevin was preceded in death by his parents Deborah & Walter Leach, brother, Vincent, his cousin Keister (who was like a brother), aunts: Jackie, Sharon and Doty and great aunt Dorothy. Kevin is our guardian angel now that we will forever miss, love, and mourn. He will always be in our memory. May Kevin’s body, soul and spirit Rest In Paradise! IN JESUS NAME, WELLL!!!!!!
