Passing of Bob Thompson

Bob Thompson was a popular Chapter member, who contributed to most of our fund-raising Pancake Breakfasts events over many years. Along with wife Judy, who manned our cash register, the Thompsons were always a big part of our Breakfast events, where Bob specialized in the preparing and cooking of our famous and very popular sausages. Amongst the team members Bob was clearly the Sausage King!

But his contribution to the Chapter started many years prior, as Bob was a founding member of the group and was instrumental in the securing and construction of the EAA240 Hangar interior. He then played several roles and held several officer positions and in recent years was part of the EAA240 Scholarship Selection Committee. He also contributed to the many hangar enhancements we undertook through recent years, including upgrading the heating, improving the kitchen and the construction of the exterior staircase.

Bob and Judy retired from the Chapter in 2018 but continue to be held in very high regard by EAA240 colleagues, friends and family alike.

Thank you Bob, for all you did for EAA240. Condolences to Judy, and to their families.
