Gene Earl Thompson, 81, of Kirkville died on Wednesday,

In his own words: “I was a graduate of Eastwood High School, class of 1955. An Army Veteran spending two years in Germany as a helicopter electrical repairman. I was a 36 year employee of Niagara Mohawk, retiring in 1994 as a Line Foreman, a member of IBEW Local 97.

I was a lifetime member of the Kirkville Volunteer Fire Company. I served as a board member of the Kirkville Cemetery Association since 1995. I belonged to the Minoa American Legion and the Chittenango Presbyterian Church. My wife Judy and I played golf at least four times a week. Although I had a hole in one in 1978, over the years my wife had four! In 2018 I shot a 78, two better than my age!”

Surviving is his wife, Judy; daughters, Sandra Thompson and Karen Thompson Goebel; son, James Thompson; nine grandchildren; sister, Suzanne Featherly; and brother, Art Thompson.

Calling hours will be Tuesday December 10, 4 to 6pm at the R.H. Schepp & Son Minoa Chapel, 6530 Schepp Corners Road, Minoa. A service will follow at 6pm at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Hospice of CNY or Clear Path for Veterans.
