Crawford Herman "CH" Thompson and Gwendolyn Stout lived between 1970 and 1997 at 205/316 Old Wire Road, Springdale, Washington, Arkansas; Grandma and Grandpa Thompson lived on Old Wire Road in Springdale from about 1970 until he died in 1997 and she continued to live there until her death in 2006. They lived in the same house the entire time but their address changed in the late 1980s or early 1990s when Springdale got their 911 system and the houses were renumbered.

For many years, my uncle Jim lived with them.

Tiger was Grandpa and Grandma Thompson's dog for as long as I can remember until the late 1980s when he died.

He was a pretty little dog that I remember fondly. He would come and sit on my lap and I would pet him when we visited my grandparents.

In the 1980s, Grandpa and Grandma wanted the family to go to the cemeteries with them on Memorial Day weekend so that all of us could see where the family was buried.

We loaded up in our cars and hit the road. We went to Friendship Cemetery in Springdale, Washington, Arkansas and to several cemeteries in Madison county, Arkansas.

Along the way, we stopped a few times. We had a picnic lunch at one of the roadside picnic areas along the roadside. This photo was snapped during one of those stops.

Crawford Herman "CH" Thompson was retired circa 1995 at RTW, Bentonville, Benton, Arkansas.

Grandpa Thompson retired from RTW in the late 1990s when he became too ill to work anymore.

The company gave him a retirement party. He had a cake and they gave him a hat on which the employees had attached money to wish him luck in his retirement.

He had enjoyed the men that he worked with and often talked about the funny stories that each of them would tell while they were working. I think that he missed the company of these men when he retired.

He died on 19 May 1997 at Northwest Medical Center, Springdale, Washington County, Arkansas, at age 70

I remember the time of his death as follows: Grandpa was very ill for many months before he died. A few weeks before his death he was diagnosed with lung cancer. The Saturday before he died on Monday, he had went to a local park and attended a Thompson family reunion. He had the chance to see some of his family that he hadn't seen in Months or Years!


The afternoon that he died he went to his bedroom to take a nap while grandma went to the kitchen to fix them something to eat. She heard a loud noise and thought he had fallen. She went to see if he was hurt and found him lying on the floor and not breathing. She called for the ambulance and he was taken to the hospital. He was pronounced dead upon his arrival at the Northwest Health Center. His Social Security Number was 429-12-3888.
