BATH — Edward S. Thompson, 82, died Feb. 18.
Thompson was born in Bath on March 15, 1929, to Edward K. and Edna Dunton Thompson.
He lived and worked in the Bath and West Bath area all his life. He was an excellent mechanic who put his skills to work for the Bath Bus Service, Dodge Chevrolet and Bath Iron Works. He enjoyed woodworking, camping, his cats and just “puttering” around the house.
Thompson was predeceased by his wife of 60 years, Barbara Thompson, and son, Keith Thompson.
He is survived by daughters, Karen Allard and her husband, Roger, of Cundy’s Harbor and Gail Dill and her husband, Gerry, of Ellsworth; brother, Perry Thompson of Virginia; six grandchildren, Roger, Jolene, Amy, Cathy, Amanda and Melissa; and 12 great-grandchildren.
The family wishes to thank the staff at HillHouse who lovingly cared for Thompson and became his extended family.
A graveside service and time of rememberance will be held at a later date at Orchard Hill Cemetery, West Bath.
