his country in the United States Marine Corp from October
16, 1943-March 7, 1946. Jack definitely fought a good fight,
he kept the faith and now he has finished his course on this
earth. "This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him and
saved him out of all his troubles." Psalm 34:6. Jack called
on the Lord November 21st, 1951 and his life was forever
changed! From that day forward, he put the Lord first in his
life. God called him to preach shortly after he was saved.
He left his profession as a public accountant and became an
evangelist, preaching in almost every state. He then became
a pastor in Oklahoma and Illinois. He then went back into
evangelism and, at 92 years of age, he was still traveling
and preaching God's word! Jack was always a gentleman, a
sharp dresser and an Arkansas Razorback fan!
Jack was preceded in death by his parents, George and Cora Thompson, his sister, Georgia White, his loving, faithful wife of 25 years, Betty Thompson, and his son, Jack Thompson Jr.
He is survived after 48 wonderful years of marriage by his wife, Annabelle Thompson, who loved him with all of her heart and took such good care of him; his dear sister, Jayne Veteto; his daughters, Jeanie Stafford, Cathy McGehee, Patricia and Ken Mathews, Mary Ann and Mike Thomas, Nancy Dowell; his sons, Mark Thompson, Donnie and Denise Thompson; his daughter, Sammie and Ted Inman and his son, Scott and Lisa Hutcheson; and daughter-in-law, Sharon Thompson. He is also survived by 26 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren. He is survived by nieces and nephews and a host of family and friends.
He will be missed by many but we are so thankful that we will see him again when we all get to heaven ~ what a day that will be!
