Monterey County Herald, CA April 18, 2000
George E. Thompson, a retired Army sergeant, died Sunday at his Salinas home. He was 77. Born Sept. 22, 1922, in Trenton, Mo., he lived in Salinas for 37 years. During his 20-year Army career, he served in World War II and the Korean War. After retiring from the military, he worked as a correctional officer at Soledad Prison for 12 years before retiring in 1990. Mr. Thompson was a member of American Legion Post 31, Masonic Lodge 204, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6849 and Disabled American Veterans. For 15 years, he was a volunteer cook at the Legion, preparing food for the various functions held there. He was an avid cribbage player, eager to take on all opponents at the Legion. Mr. Thompson was active with the Children’s Hospital, helping to transport children to medical appointments. During the 1980s, he served as chairman of the hospital’s carnival. He enjoyed helping others in a quiet way. He is survived by his wife, Yolanda; a sister, Tracey Lovell of Trenton; a brother, Jack Thompson of Lincoln, Neb.; and numerous nieces and nephews. Memorial services are pending. Cremation has taken place at Garden of Memories Cemetery. The family suggests that any memorial contributions be sent to the Children’s Hospital, Sacramento. Struve & Laporte Funeral Chapel is in charge of arrangements.
