Roby Gerald Thompson, age 83, went home to the Lord on July 9, 2019, at Estelle’s House in Ocala, FL. Roby was born on March 12, 1936, in Elk Park, North Carolina. He was a resident of Ocala, FL, since March 1986.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Roby and Laura Thompson, as well as his 6 sisters and 5 brothers.

He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Paula; his sons, Jonathan, Bill, and David; his daughter, Suzanne; his 6 grandchildren, Gabriel, Alli, Hudson, Brody, Katie, and Veronica; and his 2 dogs, Taz and Hershey.

He served in the US Air Force for 8 years and as a minister for many years. Prior to retirement Roby worked at Ring Power Corporation. Roby was a member of Redeemer Community Church and believed in faithfully going to the Lord in prayer. He loved visiting the mountains of North Carolina and the waters of St. Pete, FL. Some of his best adventures and memories were spending time with family camping and fishing in Fort De Soto Park. Roby loved flowers and plants, but most of all, he loved his family dearly.

A Celebration of Life with a potluck brunch/lunch following will be held at 10am, Saturday, July 20, 2019 in the Memorial Hall at First Christian Church, 401 SE 19th Avenue, Ocala, Florida 34471.
