Clinton M. Tompkins Obituary
Clinton M. Tompkins, age 83, passed away September 2, 2011. He was born in Hendricks, Minnesota on February 9, 1928. He grew up in White, South Dakota and came to California when he was 13. He spent four years in the Navy and graduated from the University of Southern California. He is survived by his wife, Ann; daughters, Fern, Melinda and Michelle; 8 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. Whether you knew him as husband, father, grandfather, friend, Cracked Mirror Tompkins or Big Fat Dragon, you were one of the fortunate who enjoyed his stories, paintings, and of course friendship. We will fondly remember his whistling, singing songs while we traveled, dancing to polka parade, dam building, camping at Jalama Beach, and that we could put up the family tent in 15 minutes! There is no denying that he was a strong part of our lives and we will miss him dearly. So have a glass of wine and toast Clinton Tompkins, and may a smile come to your lips. ...."although we're apart, you're part of my heart, and tonight, you belong to me"...(Patience and Prudence).
