Thomas Thomson, of Harrison, passed away on July 16, 2021, at the age of 59. Thomas was born in Kilwinning, Scotland on August 19, 1961, to George and Agnes (Mclean Malcomson) Thomson. He worked as a Master Welder in a steel mill in Scotland and moved to the United States in his 20’s. After coming to the US, he was injured and could no longer be a welder, so he started working at a nursing home. It was always funning to see this big burly man brushing an older lady’s hair but he did what he needed to do and everyone loved him. He caught the eye of a coworker Mary Rickenbaugh, and they ended up getting married on October 11, 1996. He became an instant father to Joshua, Jesse, & Kelsey and he and Mary completed their family with Kylie and Kevin. Thomas had a presence about him that made those around him feel supported, loved and always taken care of. He was a devote family man and a Buffalo Bills fan.
All the wonderful memories will live on with all who loved him especially his wife: Mary (Rickenbaugh) Thomson, children: Joshua, Jesse Rickenbaugh, Kelsey Davis, Kylie, and Kevin Thomson; grandchildren: Brayden, Summer, Liam and Novaleigh; and his beloved sisters: June McAllister & Jacqueline (Aziz) Lone. He was also a wonderful uncle to many nieces and nephews.
Thomas was preceded in death by his parents George Thomson, and Agnes Mclean Malcolmson Thomson; and brother George Thomson.
A visitation will be held on Saturday, July 24, 2021 from 10 am until the time of the funeral service at 11 am at Brater Winter Funeral Home, 201 S. Vine Street, Harrison, Ohio 45030. Burial will follow at St. Mary's Cemetery, Cincinnati, Ohio.
