Fred A. Thompson, Jr., beloved husband and devoted father, entered the gates of heaven on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at the age of 58 due to metastatic melanoma. Fred is survived by his beloved wife of 38 years, Georgiann Yates Thompson; his 4 children, Fred, III, Amanda, Elizabeth and Sarah; brothers, Brian Thompson (Pennsylvania), Larry Manning, sister Linda Manning, and step mother, Peggy Manning (North Carolina), as well as his many nieces and nephews. Fred was born on September 19, 1959 in Tyler, Pennsylvania to Ruth Ann (Mitten) Thompson and Fred A. Thompson, Sr. who both predeceased him. Fred graduated from Woodbridge High School in 1977 and began working in the carpentry field. He then later became a government contractor working for such agencies as E-Systems, Raytheon, BAE Systems, and TPGS where he was a Viz Specialist. Fred was an active member of the Boy Scouts of America where he began serving as a Den Leader for Pack 1390 with his son, Fred, moving up the ranks of scouting with his son and becoming an assistant Troop Leader for Troop 1390. Fred became the Troop Committee Chairman, using his many skills and talents to allow the troop to be successful in a cycle of growth. Once his son achieved the rank of Eagle, Fred remained as the Committee Chair and volunteered to lead activities such as setting up and running the troop’s Christmas Tree stand and taking the lead for organizing and decorating his vehicle for the Dale City 4th of July parade. Fred was also a District Eagle Representative and in this role he assisted over 60 Boy Scouts in achieving the rank of Eagle. Fred also was awarded the District Award of Merit which is presented to scouters that go well beyond normal leadership responsibilities. Fred's work with the 4th of July Parade, the Gar-Field Athletic Booster Club, as well as his responsibilities as the District Eagle Representative were the additional volunteer activities that helped him to achieve this award. Not limiting his encouragement to just the Boy Scouts, Fred was very active with each of his daughters and their Girl Scout troops. He assisted with many of the different activities including helping with the Girl Scout cookie sales and even working concession stands at the Patriot Center to help raise funds for his daughters’ European trips and Caribbean cruises. Fred was also an active member of the Gar-Field High School Athletic Booster Club serving as President and Treasurer since 2011, even though his kids had all graduated high school by 2011. Fred could often be found at the high school football games and different sporting events flipping burgers in addition to his regular duties as President and Treasurer. It was his love of serving the youth of our community that kept Fred active in both the Gar-Field High School Athletic Booster Club as well as the Boy Scouts. Fred’s services were held Saturday, December 2, at Lutheran Church of the Covenant at 15008 Cloverdale Road, Dale City, Virginia. The family is requesting to honor Fred's love of serving the youth by asking for donations to be made in his name to either the Boy Scouts or the youth group of our church. If paying by check, please be sure to write Tribute to Fred Thompson in the memo line. For the church, make checks payable to Lutheran Church of the Covenant - Youth Group. For the Boy Scouts the address is Marriott Scout Service, 9190 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20814 or on-line donations can be made using the following link: www.ncacbsa.org/support-scouting/tributes-and-memorials.
