Ivan E. Thompson passed away peacefully on April 24, 2019, at the age of 94.
Ivan’s parents, John and Edith Thompson, purchased property on Sunlight Beach in the 1940s. He and his parents spent much time on Sunlight Beach and that enjoyment continued with Ivan and his family, who have enjoyed their time on Whidbey Island golfing, fishing, crabbing and beach walking.
Ivan leaves behind his wife of 63 years, Molly Thompson, daughter Kristin (Kyle) Sugamele, son Kirk (Carol) Thompson, and his three grandchildren, Brooke, Andrew, and Paige.
Ivan will be remembered fondly as an avid dancer at the Holmes Harbor Rod & Gun Club and as the guy who hosted “hook time” at 5 p.m. on Sunlight Beach.
There will be a celebration of Ivan’s life at 2 p.m. June 9, 2019 at the Sons of Norway Bothell Lodge, 23905 Bothell Everett Hwy., Bothell, Wash., 98021
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bothell Sons of Norway Scholarship Fund.
