Albert Thompson Obituary

Albert J.T. Thompson, age 87, resident of Somerville, Tennessee, departed this life Thursday afternoon, October 26, 2023 at his home.

Albert was born September 22, 1936 in Fayette County, Tennessee, the son of the late Elmer Allen Thompson and Bessie Pearl Thompson. He was also preceded in death by his brother, L.T. Thompson and his sister, Elmer Ruth McNabb.

Mr. Thompson is survived by his life partner of 43 years, Ruth Wilson; their daughter, Elizabeth Thompson (Andy) and granddaughter, Makayla Thompson.
