He enjoyed his great-grandchildren: Madison, Max, Lux, William, Cael, Landen, Gideon, and Meara. He is also survived by his brother Tom Thompson, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He will be sadly missed by his fur babies, George and Lighting. He was married for 43 years to the late Shirley Dewar. Bill grew up in a loving family and was predeceased by three brothers: Arden (Amy), Ralph (Phyllis), Percy (Helen), and a sister-in-law Marilyn. He was adored and cherished and also predeceased by his sisters: Mildred (Edward “Chummie”), Georgie (Carl), Joyce (George), Susan (Fred) and Betty (Dave).
