Robert Charles Thompson

THOMPSON, Robert Charles - Of Blenheim, passed away at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance on Sunday, June 10, 2018. Bob was one of three children born to the late Norman and Hazel (Green) Thompson and is survived by his sister Kay Holt of Calgary. Bob was predeceased by his sister Helen Green. Bob and his first wife Jennie, who predeceased him in 2002 were the proud parents of three children; Rose Marie (late Archie) Johnston of Chatham, Kathleen (late Michael) Donahue of Newfoundland and John Robert Thompson who predeceased his dad in 2017. He loved being a Grandpa to 7 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren. In 2008, Bob married Sandra (Shepley) and his family grew to include Sandy's children, Pat and Mike Nussey, Penny Wright and Don Quennville, and Pam and Steven Renaud; as well as six additional grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Bob worked for many years, being self employed in the construction business. His success could be attributed to his determination, his self discipline and his sense of accomplishment. Even in his retirement years, he didn't like to be idle. He was a kind gentleman who knew what he wanted and accomplished what needed to be done. He and Sandy were members of St. Andrew's Church in South Buxton. In keeping with Bob's wishes, cremation has taken place. Family and friends are invited to the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Thursday, June 14, 2018 where visitation will take place from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. followed immediately by a Funeral Service conducted by Pastor Eric Skillings.
