George Homer Thompson

October 18, 1947 — April 8, 2024

Santo

George Homer Thompson was born on October 18, 1947 to Homer (Bill) and Thelma Thompson. He passed away on April 8, 2024 at the age of 76. George graduated from Santo High School in May 1966. He proudly served his country in Vietnam as a seaman in the United States Navy from October 1967 to June 1973.
Later in life, his nephew and namesake George Porter followed in his footsteps with a career in the navy. George traveled many places during his time in the navy. He was later employed by Xerox and Canon and continued to travel the world representing Canon as a loyal and faithful employee.

George meant many things to many people. Everyone has fond memories of times spent with George. One thing everyone can agree on, is that George was a foundation and the connector for our family. We may not all keep in touch very often, but George was just a phone call away for all of us. Everyone that knew or spent time with George understood that he was a very intelligent man. But most of all he was also someone that listened and cared. George was known to take care of things. Need a lawn mower repaired, he would figure out the problem and get it fixed up for you. Need some sort of car or equipment repair, he would buy the book and figure out what the problems was. The problem was fixed before you knew it.

Needless to say, George will be greatly missed by many people.

He is preceded in death by his parents-Bill and Thelma Thompson, Brother-Oliver Savage, Brother-Luis Savage, Sister-Mary Black, and Sister-Ann Wolff.

He is survived by his one remaining sister Dollie Cummings and her husband Harvey of Lipan. George had many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews who loved him and will miss him dearly.
