WALLINGFORD - Robert S. Thompson, 91, of Wallingford, beloved husband of 65 years to Agnes ""Nan"" (Robertson) Thompson, departed this life on Tuesday, June 18, 2013, at the MidState Medical Center.

Bob was born on June 30, 1921, in Wallingford son of the late Clifford F. Thompson and Mary (Simson) Thompson. He was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Yale University, class of 1943, and a Veteran of the U. S. Army Air Corps having served during World War II.

My deepest sympathies on losing your life long love and friend Nan. I always enjoyed the talks Bob and I had while he was waiting for his car to be done. Even at his age, he was wise way beyond his years.

So sorry to hear that Bob passed. He put up with me and taught me a great deal about keeping the books at 1st Church as a Trustee.

As a member of First Congregational Church, I have seen Mr. Thompson for many years. He did a great deal of work for our church - and was a joy to listen to in the choir. Nan, my deepest condolences to you and your family. He will be greatly missed. May God give you comfort and guide you through this difficult loss.
