THOMPSON, Andrew Patterson “Dan”

June 21, 1943 – Innisfail, Alberta
October 5, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Dan Thompson of Calgary, passed away on Friday, October 5, 2018 at the age of 75 years.

Dan was born in Innisfail, Alberta to Peter and Elsie Thompson. Dan excelled in school attending High School in Red Deer and the University of Calgary. Dan and Pat married on June 21st, 1965. During the next several years, Dan took various positions with the Parsons Corporation in Canada – British Columbia, Yukon, and Northern Alberta. They left Canada in the early seventies with their daughters, Andrea and Michelle. For the next 30 years, they worked and traveled in the United States and Middle East, always welcoming those who came to visit. They made regular visits back to Southern Alberta for holidays. Their home was always a place that friends and neighbours were welcome. Dan worked for The Parsons Corporation for nearly forty years. He was deeply committed to his career and was valued by his colleagues. During Dan’s extensive international travels for work and recreation, he made an abundance of life long friendships. He was known for his inappropriate sense of humour and irreverence. Dan took a medical retirement in 2002 due to his MS and returned to Calgary. He will be fondly remembered by all that knew him.

Dan is survived by his two daughters and two sons-in-law, Andrea and Jon Wright, and Michelle and Neil Harrison; sister and brother-in-law, Marie and Tony Czirfusz; brother and sister-in-law, Albert and Joan Thompson; three grandchildren, Dryden, Duncan and Ketta; as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
