Freddie Mack Thompson, 73, of Maricopa, Arizona, entered into his eternal home on June 22, 2017, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. He was a loving husband, a devoted father, an irreplaceable granddaddy, a loyal brother and a faithful friend. “Mack”, as all his friends knew him, was the son of the late Walter Ervin and Bertha Mae Thompson. He was born in Levelland, Texas on July 26, 1943. He moved from Texas to California in 1966, where he began his career in the produce industry. He worked for Bud Antle Inc. and Nunes Cooling.
He had four children whom he adored and worked hard for. Mack enjoyed watching his grand kids play sports, playing dominoes and card games, bowling, swimming, biking, running, caring for his plants, watching westerns on TV and dancing to old country music. He is remembered for his loving heart, sense of humor, his sweet tooth and contagious laugh.
He leaves his loving memories to be cherished by his beloved wife, Sabra Thompson, married on June 16th, 2007; his children: Cary and wife, Jennifer, of Corvallis, Oregon; Randy and wife, Valerie, of Davis, California; Tracy and wife, Sandra, of Hollister, California; Jolie and husband, Nathan Rutledge, of Hollister, California; and Dinah Mae Thompson, the mother of his children, of Watsonville, California.
