Christopher C. Thompson

ASHTABULA — Christopher Columbus “C.C.” Thompson, age 83, passed away Thursday, April 4, 2013, at the Country Club Retirement Center.

He was born Feb. 15, 1930, in Strong, Ark., the son of Elias and Neomia (Miles) Thompson and had been an Ashtabula resident since 1953. A Veteran of the U.S. Army, he served during the Korean Conflict before being honorably discharged in 1953.

Prior to his retirement, he worked in the maintenance department for Union Carbide/Elkem Metals.

A wonderful jokester with a great sense of humor, he enjoyed playing cards and doted on his grandchildren. A big fan of singer Sade, he was also well-loved by his nieces and nephews who all knew him as “Uncle CC”.

His survivors include two sons, Calvin “CC” Thompson of Ashtabula and Terrence Thompson of Akron; five grandchildren, Darnell “Darny”, Litisha “Tish” and Tameka “Meke” Thompson, Terrence Thompson Jr. and Cordal Thompson; four great-grandchildren, Demetrius, Deja and Donovan Thompson and Tyvell Lee; one sister, Onia Mae Jackson; a half-brother, Chester King of Eldorado, Ark.; and many nieces and nephews including Occiephine Henry, his favorite who had been his caregiver for the past 10 years, as well as Edna Renee Bell who helped care for him while Occiephine was not able to do so.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Carrie (Delaney) Thompson; a son, Melvin Thompson in infancy; three sisters, Willie B. Henry, Othella Gaines and Helen McDuffe; two brothers, Otha Lee Thompson and Theo Thompson; and his parents.

Calling Hours will be held on Saturday, April 13th, from 10 to 11 a.m., with a 11 a.m. Service at the ZABACK-WILLIAMS-DUCRO FUNERAL HOME, 500 W. Prospect Road, Ashtabula. The Rev.
