Robert Wayne Thompson born September 18, 1951, entered into eternal life on March 20, 2023, after a long, hard, courageous fight against pancreatic cancer.
Wayne was raised on Thompson Farm on East High Street in Malta, NY, the oldest son of the late Robert James Thompson and Mildred (Corlew) Thompson
He was a hard worker all his life, Wayne began his agricultural career on the family farm at the age of three. He later had his own dairy farm, then went on to work at Allenwaite Farms for over 40 years, starting as a general worker and progressing to Young Stock Manager, raising many generations of animals from calves to bred heifers. He also met his wife, Mary Beth, at Allenwaite Farms when she worked at the farm one summer.
Wayne was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor, he loved to travel, and especially enjoyed his trips to Aruba, and to calf conferences around the United States, representing Allenwaite Farms.
He was an avid tractor puller all his life, he couldn't wait to get his favorite tractor "The Outlaw" ready to go each year, then proudly display the trophies & ribbons that he won.
Wayne is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Mary Beth (Fedak), his cherished children, Heather (Doug) Thompson Miller and Adam Thompson; grandchildren, Sean Edmonds and Rebecca Domke; siblings, Eric (Darlene) Thompson, Kimberly (John) Arsenault, Jack (Tanesha) Corlew, Michelle Kvinlaug, Tanya (Shane) Mattison, and Mary Lou Cruz; his first wife and good friend, Patricia Thompson, cat, Jeeves; many nieces, nephews and friends.
