- Reynold George Thompson Sr. passed away in Bangor, ME, on January 11, 2017, at the age of 88.
Reynold is survived by his son Reynold Thompson Jr. (aka 'Buzzy') of Bangor, ME, grandchildren Richard Brackett of Lakeland, FL, Deborah Molchovsky of Winter Haven, Amy York of Mills River, NC, and Deanna Thompson of Denali NP, AK, as well as 6 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Ellis and Daisy Thompson, his sisters Dolly, Faye, and Alice, brother Malcolm, wife Laura, and daughter Barbara Brackett Passarini.
Reynold was born in 1928 to Ellis and Daisy Thompson and married Laura M. Huntley in 1946. After serving in the Army he went on to be a Master Mason, retiring early from the Great Northern Paper Company. Never one to be idle, Reynold's life was one of boundless energy. Reynold went on to become an entrepreneur and business owner, creating a very successful auto parts franchise and other local businesses in East Millinocket. Often short tempered, Reynold could be pugnacious at times, but friends and family found a ready smile and laugh more often than not.
A graveside service will be scheduled in the spring at the East Millinocket Cemetery. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Reynold's life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
