Clinton Thompson
Clinton Thompson, 72, of Celina, died at 11:25 a.m. June 10, 2013, at his residence.
He was born Feb. 11, 1941, in Lee County, Va., to George C. and Laura Smith Thompson. On May 19, 1990, under the arbor he made at their home, he married Lynne Harris, who survives.
Also surviving are his daughters, Tresha (Dave) Backs of Goodlettsville, Tenn., Anessa (Mike) Stappleton of Madison, Ala., and Sherri (Sean) Killingsworth of Huber Heights; an adopted daughter, Chris (Dave) Emmons of Dayton; brothers, James Thompson of Celina and G.C. (Barb) Thompson of St. Marys; in-laws, Niles Harris of Deadwood, S.D., Sis Harris Coenen of Ketchikan, Alaska, and Trip (Wanda) Davis of Lima.    
Preceding him in death were his parents; his brothers, L.C. Thompson and Douglas Thompson; his sisters, Ruth (Rex) Parsons and Betty (Richard) Belden; and his sisters-in-law, Marge Thompson and Bette Harris Davis.
He was a house siding installer. He truly enjoyed his job and never met a home he didn't like. He most recently had worked for Doyle Homes of Lima. He enjoyed his home at Behms Landing, fishing and supplying fish for the neighborhood fish fries.
Memorial services are 2:30 p.m. Monday at Gilberg-Hartwig Funeral Home in New Bremen, the Rev. Rodney Ritchie officiating. Burial will be at a later date at the German Protestant Cemetery in New Bremen.
Calling is 1 p.m. until the time of the services at the funeral home.
Memorial contributions may be given to the Cancer Association of Mercer County, State of the Heart Hospice, or the charity of the donor's choice.
