Tompkins, George Allan

On his 80th birthday, George quietly and peacefully passed away. He was the son of Reginald and Helene Tompkins, both predeceased. He leaves behind his loving wife Loretta, children Andrea (Brian), Durelle, Rick (Jody), Yvonne (Claude) and Julia. Also, grandchildren Heidi (Mike), Avery (Tanya), Andrew (predeceased), Joel, Evan, Austin, Ashley, Aleisha (Trevor), Lyndsey, Tiffany, Ashlynn and 3 great grandchildren. Referred to by many as GAT, he was known for his own brand of humour which sustained him throughout his eighty years. As a resident of St. Gabriel’s Villa, he was cared for with dignity and respect given warm, genuine care enriched by dignity and respect by the wonderful staff. His love of the outdoors extended to the pleasure derived from camp on Penage. There will be a gathering to embrace his life in early May. Donations in George’s memory can be made directly to St. Joseph’s Foundation (re: St. Gabriel’s Foundation), Alzheimer Society or to a charity of your choice.

“Let’s embrace him”. A Celebration of Life for Mr. George Tompkins will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019. We will celebrate his life at the “Idylwylde Golf & Country Club” at 400 Walford Road, Sudbury from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. All are welcome to celebrate him.

  4. George was such an interesting man. At family gatherings I often found myself sitting beside him and being truly engaged with his knowledge, life perspective and his clever wit. He never treated me like a kid but rather engaged in conversation that was smart, insightful and often times amusing.
    Looking forward to raising a glass for him.
    Warm thoughts to the entire family.
