THOMPSON, HARRY AUGUST, 98, longtime resident of Cabot, passed away peacefully on September 3, in the presence of family at Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin. Harry was born in Ekalaka, Mont., on Aug. 24, 1915, the son of Frank Thompson and Margaret Rose McCarty. Harry is predeceased by his siblings, Frank “Crow,” Herbert “Bert,” Edwin “Dude,” and Elizabeth “Lib.” Harry is survived by his children Hunter, Rose, Lucas and Matthew, his six grandchildren, as well as longtime friends and caring companions Stephen Gregg and Cathleen Besch. Harry was a tried-and-true Vermonter, collecting cows, houses, antiques, “junk” and friends, near and far in Vermont and beyond. He was renowned for his kindness and ability to find anything a person might need among his treasures, from a kitchen sink to a gold locket and sometimes even a little baby Chihuahua to warm a lonely heart. Harry’s door was always open for a cup of instant coffee, homemade jam and, if you were lucky, a piece of fresh pie with lots of sugar and a perfect crust. A memorial celebration potluck will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, from 12 noon to 6pm at Cabot Town Hall/The Willey Building on Main Street in Cabot. All are welcome. Please bring a dish to share as well as loving memories and any photos you would like to share.
