RADIO IS PASSED FROM OLD TO YOUNG
Donald “Tommy” Thompson was a lifelong resident of Springfield and he proudly served in the U.S. Navy. Tommy Thompson was also an avid, popular, amateur “Ham” radio operator and he made many friends in the surrounding comities. He contributed time and equipment to many in the area. Don also was there in the best and worst weather to help fellow "Ham" operators. Sadly, Don passed away, but his legacy will live on with the donation of a handheld radio to ten year-old Joshua Brannon of Greenville. At a ceremony Friday afternoon, at the Greenville Courthouse, the radio was given to Joshua in memory of Don. Joshua was very excited to receive this gift and even used the radio for the first time during the ceremony. For all you "Ham" operators out there, Joshua’s call sign is KC9SIA.
