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.
