In Memory of James Herbert “Herb” Thompson

Born:  May 29, 1953 – Died: October 9, 2014

It is with deep regret and sadness that I convey to you that my good friend Herbert Thompson passed away unexpectedly at his home Thursday afternoon (October 9, 2014) around 5:00 PM.

Herb was a lifelong friend of mine and my family.  There are no words to express the sadness that is felt by his family, his friends and his community.  He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Herb was a lifelong resident of Skipperville, Alabama.  He was always there when anybody needed a helping hand.  

I can personally say that I am a better man for having been raised up with Herbert Thompson and in later years his association with Watson Auction & Realty.  He was the “cream of the crop” when it comes to good men.  I have never met a man with equaled dedication and loyalty to anyone he encountered. He was always ready to help anyone in his path.  

If there are any auctions in heaven, you can bet that Herb will be there with a big smile on his face and helping in any way he can.

I will be forever blessed to say that he was my friend.
