William Otis Thompson

May 25, 1953 — September 10, 2022

William Thompson, 69, entered into rest on Saturday, September 10, 2022.


William was born on May 25, 1953, in McRae, Georgia to the late Collie Thompson and Anna Ward Katy. Growing up mostly in Macon, he joined the United States Marine Corp in 1972 at the age of nineteen. William served at Camp Lejeune and dedicated twenty-two years of service until his retirement in 1994. A big University of Georgia fan, GO DAWGS, William also enjoyed fishing and golfing but really enjoyed being at home. Having never met a stranger, he was always cheerful and loving to everyone he met. William was preceded in death by his siblings, J.W. Wheeler, Billy Wayne Wheeler, Clifford Wheeler and Margaret Louise Thompson.


His memory will forever be treasured by his adoring daughter, Merri Sarita Lewis of Michigan; grandchildren, Hannah and Noah Lewis; brothers, Paul Wheeler (JoAnne) of Kathleen, Archie Thompson, Sr. (Emma) of Abbeville, Alabama and Willis Allen (Judy) of Commerce; previous spouse, Debbie Cox, his long-time companion, Gladys Thompson, and God brother and sister, Larry and Earnestine Jamison.
