Obituary

Robert E. "Bob" Thompson, 77, passed on October 5, 2019. He leaves his devoted wife of 48 years, Kathleen “Kathy” (nee Clisham), with many laughs and stories, much love and the happiest of memories. Bob was the cherished father of Kelly (Bill) Johnson; Erin (Phil) Georgiou; and Amy (Jim) Pienta; adored grandfather of Josh, Trevor, Kyle, Morgan, Reid, Emily and Kate. Preceded in death by his parents and three siblings. Fond uncle of countless nieces and nephews. Friend to all.

Bob was a lifelong sports buff and an especially diehard fan of the Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears. To know Bob was to realize there was always a friend with you. He was Bob. He was Dad. He was Papa. He touched each one of us with his humor, his spirit, his loyalty, and his heart. We all will miss him dearly, but we know he will be with us always.

Visitation on Friday, October 11, 2019 from 3-9 p.m. at Colonial Chapel, 15525 S. 73rd Ave. (155th/Wheeler Dr. & Harlem), Orland Park, IL. Reflections by family and friends will be held at 8:00 p.m. All are welcome to reminisce and share their memories of Bob. Interment will be held at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your favorite charitable organization in Bob’s honor.

I am so sad, and it's hard for me to believe my Uncle Bob isn't here any more. I loved my Uncle Bob more than the moon and stars. I know the last few years have been rough for both him and my aunt Quackqueen. My hope is that he's pain free, and having a wild and crazy time up in heaven. Love you Uncle Bob, forever!
