Thompson graduated from Pitt University with a Masters degree in English. He retired from Brockway Glass as their Executive Advertising Manager in Jacksonville Florida and moved to the beautiful Low Country to enjoy his retirement. Thompson was a well respected expert on Antiques and had his own television show years ago in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania called Pittsylvania Antiques. He has also published a number of books on Antiques but in his later years his love of writing was focused on poetry and stories. Thompson was very devoted to his family and would do anything to help anyone. His sense of humor never failed, even in the most recent difficult days. He loved wildlife , animals and ice-cream and never met a cookie he didn’t like. His passion was his spiritual beliefs and his love for his county. A proud veteran of the Army, Thompson was a sergeant and had spent time in Germany.

Thompson was a kind and well loved man who will be missed by everyone who knew him, and missed terribly by his family.

Details on a service will be announced at a later date.
