Farewell to Gerry Thompson

We lost a friend and crewman last month. Gerry Thompson (71) passed away on October 8th, 2018.

He was a active member of the Friends of Crysler’s Farm group for many years, a very interesting long term historic interpreter gardener at Upper Canada Village and was a faithful 1st member (1986)  of my recreated Royal Navy 1812 cannon crew that participated in many reenactments in the area over the years.

We will miss his depth of knowledge on historical facts and stories, his work with the Friends as well as his friendship.

Fair winds and following seas my friend.

Bob Irvine

On behalf of the Friends
