Graveside Gathering for Stephen Thompson

Anyone who worked, photographed, or modeled the railway in Northern Ontario over the last few decades likely would have met and/or befriended Stephen Thompson.

Steve sadly passed away on December 26th, 2018 in North Bay.

A Graveside Gathering will be held on May 7th, 2019 at 11:30 am at the Terrace Lawn Cemetery on the corner of O'Brien and Airport Road in North Bay. It's very easy to find. Simply turn off Highway 11 at Airport Road, drive to the first traffic light, turn right on O'Brien and you will see the Cemetery right away on your left.

To quote one of Steve's very good friends Val Croswell, " The railroad fraternity was very important to Steve's parents as they were deeply involved in the organization of the NMRA and attended many conventions in the US and Canada. They even hosted one in North Bay. Steve's friends were also in the "Train World" with model railroaders chasing trains for photos and video in order to enjoy and preserve that industry."

Everyone is welcome to join us in North Bay at the Terrace Lawn Cemetery as we honor our good friend Stephen Thompson.

See You There,
