Hello, I am Candy Whitaker, Charles Thompson's daughter. My dad passed away on August 30 2002, in Osceola Medical Center, after a long battle with COPD, and lung cancer, with his sons and daughters by his side. He was cremated and he wanted his remains spread at the family farm in Minong. I also want to mention that my mom told me that Dad said that the Thompson name wasn't from Norway but that it was put down incorrectly in America, and that it was actually Thorson in Norway. I'm not sure that it is accurate but, it may help end the dead end.
