Thompson, Neil Franklin – Passed away peacefully at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre on Monday, January 4, 2021 at the age of 72. Neil will be deeply missed by his cherished wife Barbara (Scott) of 53 years. Devoted father of Julie Wilson (Darryl) of Harlowe, Mark Thompson (Vicki) of Bristol, New Brunswick and Joseph Thompson (Kendal) of Northbrook. Proud grandpa of Cayley, Cassidy, Andrew, Jacob, Eva, Kloe, Letitia, Kolton and Brody. Beloved brother of Terry Thompson (Winnifred) of Cremona, British Columbia and Peggy Drouillard (Monty) of Flinton. Predeceased by his parents Ray and Iris Thompson (Neal) and siblings Carol Stanton (late Spurgeon), Allan Thompson (late Janet) and Glenn Thompson (Sheila).
In 1977 when Neil was just 29 years old he opened his own carpentry business. He had passion for woodworking and I’m sure that anyone he did work for could say the same. Neil taught his children the art of carpentry and because of that when he retired in 2015 his son Joe took over the business. Mark also continues to do carpentry work back home in New Brunswick. For this Neil was very proud. Thank you to all of the nurses and doctors at Kingston Health Sciences Centre for the exceptional care that Neil received while in the hospital. Also, thank you to all of our friends and neighbours who have shared their love and compassion with us during these difficult times.
