It is with sadness we announce the passing of John James “Jack” Tompsett, Stephen’s father. He was 95 years young.┬áMay the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

Beloved husband of Rae. Dearly loved and loving father and father-in-law of Steve (deceased) and Dorry, Geoff and Sue, Liz, Ian and Kirri. Most loved, treasured and cherished grandfather of Emily, Sarah, Lachlan, Claire and Becky. Jack will be sadly missed by all his family and friends. Aged 95 years. January 18, 1919 – May 1, 2014

A gentle, lovable and generous man. Always a gentleman.

May he rest in peace.
