Melvin “Mick” Thompson, age 90, of Blissfield, Michigan, died Friday morning, May 11, 2018 at Ebeid Hospice in Sylvania.  He was born October 10, 1927 in Ogden Township, Michigan to Matilda (Wapshall) and Charles Thompson.  Mick was born, raised and lived 88 years on the family homestead.  He graduated from Metamora High School in 1945.  On August 7, 1975, he married Teresa Komon.

Sincere condolences to Denny, Larry, Rose, Bev, and the entire family. Even with losing someone after a long and full life, I know it is still hard to say goodbye. I did not know Mr. Thompson well, but you can tell a lot about a patriarch by looking at his family...and by that measure he must have been a great man!
