Obituary

Our beloved father, brother, grandfather, DONALD THOMPSON, also affectionately known as, "Donnie" to his family and "RAT" to his close friends, was called home by the Lord  on September 10, 2017.
Donald  was born to the late Mary (Robinson) and Willie Thompson in South Philadelphia, on November 2, 1955.
He was educated in the Philadelphia Public School System ending at South Philadelphia High School.
Donald struggled with substance abuse at a young age. With support, self–help and treatment he was able to recover and pursue a career as a drug and alcohol counselor. He also held other work positions. 
 He was truly a family man who enjoyed coming together during family gatherings and holidays, especially Christmas.
His hobbies included playing Madden with his nephews, Vincent and Derrick, and son, Andre. One of his greatest joys was being reunited with his daughter and son.
After Donald's health took a turn he was still determined to live this life as desired.  His family members stood by his side and  in his care until his last days.
Donald leaves to cherish his memories: children, Andre Mungin (Tameka), Quisha "Princess" Thompson, Dymar  Thompson (Christine) and Jair Thompson; sisters, Denise Pinder, Deborah Thompson (his twin) and Elfrida Michell (Elijah); brothers, Joseph Robinson (Michele), and Michael Thompson (Aisha); 10 grandchildren, 1 great–great granddaughter; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
We Love You Donnie!
