Bob was born May 7, 1930 to George and Mary Thompson in Euphrasia Township. He attended school at Rosedale and helped on the farm throughout his childhood.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Thompson Family. Memories of Uncle Bob visiting our farm near Durham, Ontario when my siblings and I were growing up. He always had that beautiful smile and great love for life. Keep his memory close to your heart. Pearl and Jack Busch and family from Golden BC.
