Obituary / Nécrologie

We regret to announce the death of Ted Thompson on Monday, August 24, 2020 at Sensenbrenner Hospital in Kapuskasing, surrounded by his loved ones at the age of 71.
Ted had a much-loved career spanning over 30 years with Cochrane & District Social Services Administration Board retiring in 2011 as District Manager. Kapuskasing meant the world to him and he gave back by serving on municipal council for numerous terms, Chair of the Sensenbrenner Hospital Board and the Remi Lake Cottage Owners Association and many other committees. Ted was happiest when he was with his close friends whether it was travelling, golfing, watching sports, or receiving them at the infamous Al-K-Hal cottage, but mostly to share stories and laughter (over a pint).He was a true Toronto Maple Leafs’ fan. He loved music and the Rolling Stones was his favourite band, having seen them numerous times in concert. His happy place was at the cottage on Remi Lake where of late he enjoyed the simple things in life like watering his flowers while having a Heineken, his daily happy hour sitting in his Adirondack chair overlooking the lake, again with a Heineken and cribbage games with Louise. He is survived by the love of his life, Louise(Taggart) and his son and buddy Cole of Kapuskasing, his mother, Winnifred of Scarborough and three siblings, Harry of Scarborough, Heather Thompson-Pyle (Vic) of Toronto and Steve (Barb) of Pickering. Ted also leaves behind his many special nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father Ray, and two sisters; Betty Jeffrey and Cathy Fiddes. A celebration of life will be held at a later time when family and friends can gather to reminisce and honor a true friend and gentleman. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the North East Association for Community Living or the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated. ©

Nous regrettons d’annoncer le décès de Ted Thompson à l’âge de 71 ans, entouré de ses proches, à l’Hôpital Sensenbrenner de Kapuskasing, le lundi 24 août, 2020. Pendant plus de 30 ans, Ted a œuvré auprès du Conseil d’administration des services sociaux du district de Cochrane, jusqu’à sa retraite en 2011 à titre de Directeur régional. Au cœur de sa vie était la région de Kapuskasing, et il redonnait à la communauté en servant comme conseiller municipal au cours de plusieurs mandats, dont Président du conseil d’administration de l’Hôpital Sensenbrenner, l’Association des propriétaires de chalets du lac Rémi, ainsi que plusieurs autres comités. Ted était davantage heureux voyageant, jouant au golf, regardant des sports, ou en présence de ses proches amis qu’il recevait à l’infâme chalet Al-K-Hal, surtout pour partager des histoires et le rire (en prenant un verre). Il était un fidèle partisan des Maple Leafs de Toronto. Grand amateur de musique, le groupe Rolling Stones était son orchestre préféré qu’il a vu de nombreuses fois en direct. Son lieu préféré était le chalet au lac Rémi où – dernièrement – il jouissait des petites choses de la vie, tel l’arrosage de ses fleurs en dégustant une Heineken, son heure de bonne humeur quotidienne, assis dans sa chaise Adirondack, orientation lac, toujours avec une Heineken en main, et jouant au cribbage avec Louise. Lui survivent le grand amour de sa vie, Louise (Taggart), ainsi que son fils et copain Cole de Kapuskasing, sa mère Winnifred de Scarborough; et ses frères et sœur : Harry de Scarborough, Heather Thompson-Pyle (Vic) de Toronto et Steve (Barb) de Pickering. Ted laisse également dans le deuil plusieurs nièces et neveux qu’il chérissait. Il fut prédécédé par son père Ray et deux sœurs : Betty Jeffrey et Cathy Fiddes. Une célébration de vie aura lieu à une date ultérieure quand famille et amis pourront se rassembler pour honorer et se rappeler d’un vrai gentilhomme et ami sincère. Comme témoignage de sympathie, la famille sera très reconnaissante de dons à l’Association pour intégration communautaire du Nord Est, ou la Société canadienne du cancer. ©

So sorry to hear about Ted's passing. I have very fond memories of Ted in our early high school days.
Wendy and I would like to send our deepest condolences to Louise and the entire family.

My sincere sympathy. I knew Ted in high school. He was always one step ahead of the teachers and was outspoken. He was the guy who asked "Why?" and was a champion of fairness and transparency. That cost him a few detentions . . . and before you knew it we would have a CLASS detention! I wanted to be less of a dweeb and more like him. God bless you Ted, then and now
