He had been a resident of Belleville since 1924 and had designed a number of important buildings, including Belleville Collegiate and Vocational School and St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. Recently he was working on the plans for the new Hastings County Home for the Aged. He was a member of Moira Lodge, AF & AM, Belleville, and life member of Civil Service Lodge, AF & AM, Ottawa.

      He leaves his wife, the former Eleanor Fetherstonhaugh; three daughters: Mrs. Elliott, Toronto; Mrs. Cecil D. wight, Ottawa; and Mrs. Oliver Smith, Braeside, and two brothers, Pierre C. and W. Raymond Thomson, both of Toronto.

      Following service in Toronto on Sunday afternoon, interment was made in the Ayr Cemetery on Monday after the arrival of the morning train from Toronto.
