It is with great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Harry Allen Thompson (Granddad). Allen was born on April 19, 1939 and passed away March 16, 2007. Upon retirement after 40+ years at the Elk Falls Mill, Allen dedicated his time at volunteering at Cedar and Phoenix Schools in the lunch programs as well as PAC. He also had a passion for history and was an active member in the Genealogy Club. Granddad loved spending his time with his grandchildren, particularly his grandson Xavier and teammates as they participated in their basketball, soccer and hardball programs just as he had with his sons growing up. You could always find him cheering on a game or flipping burgers at Nunn’s Creek Park. Predeceased by his father.
Allen is lovingly survived by his wife Karen of forty-one years, his sons: David, Michael (Tami), Timothy (Angela), grandchildren: Jillian, Alexander, Xavier, Kirsten, Anna, Alexis, Tearlach, his Mother Mary, Sister Shawn (Bob), Aunt Clara, Gran Gran (Ruby) as well as many close family and friends. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday March 24 and 1p.m. at the Quinsam Hall. In lieu of flowers please make donations to charity of choice.
