Robert E. Thompson, 87, of Dade City, Florida, and formerly of Williamstown, VT, passed away Sept. 24, 2017, at his home with his family at his bedside. Born in Barre, Vermont, on Dec. 27, 1929, he was the son of the late Clyde and Katherine (Sullivan) Thompson. Robert attended elementary school in Graniteville and Spaulding High School in Barre. After his schooling, he served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. After his honorable discharge, he returned to Barre where he was employed as a machinist for the Rock of Ages Corp. where he retired in 1994 after 49 years of employment. He was first married to Pauline Calcagni in St. Monica Catholic Church in Barre. She passed away. In December 1967, he married Wilma Rivers in St. Sylvester Catholic Church in Graniteville, Vermont. The couple made their home in Williamstown. In 2000, they moved to Florida where they made their home. Robert was an avid hunter who enjoyed playing horseshoes and bowling – but most of all, he enjoyed spending precious time with his family and wintering in Florida. He was a former member of St. Edward Catholic Church of Williamstown, St. Rita Catholic Church in Florida and the American Legion Post #10 of Barre. Survivors include his wife of 49 years of marriage, Wilma Thompson, of Dade City, Florida; three daughters, Cindy Gregoire, of Williamstown, Vermont, Kelly Thompson, of Pocatello, Idaho, and Traci Haas-Thompson, of Knightdale, North Carolina.
