Obituary of Brian Thompson

Brian passed away on Sunday, May 8, 2022, in Kitchener at the age of 80 years.


Dear husband of Ying Liang. Predeceased by his first wife Sharon (nee Sievenpiper). Also predeceased by parents William and Bessie (nee Pickett) of Brantford. Father of Christopher (Sheri) and Sean. Treasured grandfather of Riley and Liam and brother of Robert (Rita) of Brantford. He will be missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.


Born in Brantford, Ontario, Brian worked for the Canada Revenue Agency for almost 40 years. Brian was an avid golfer, playing many rounds with friends and colleagues at Rebel Creek, and courses all over Ontario. 


Brian loved donating his time to several local organizations and charities. He volunteered with Kitchener Minor Baseball for over 40 years, serving as President for seven years. Brian was always willing to help where he could and became an executive board member for many of those 40 years. He served as umpire in chief as well as Bingo operations director, and was able to lend a hand at any event that required it. There is a bench at Breithaupt Park that was dedicated to him in 2015 for his loyalty and contributions to KMBA and his years of service.

Brian took a great deal of enjoyment and pride in watching his grandsons’ baseball and hockey games and spending time with family. 


Cremation has taken place and the family will celebrate his life privately.
