He is survived by two daughters, Karen Allard and her husband, Roger of Cundy’s Harbor and Gail Dill and her husband, Gerry of Ellsworth; a brother, Perry Thompson of Virginia; he greatly enjoyed his six grandchildren, Roger, Jolene, Amy, Cathy, Amanda and Melissa, who knew him as “ Pompie” and had recently been introduced to the youngest of his 12 great grandchildren.
