Roger Ford Barnes Tompkins , Veteran
Canton, Georgia – 09-02-19
ABOUT THE MISSION:
It is my sad duty to inform of the passing of another U.S. Army Veteran. The family of Mr. Roger Ford Barnes Tompkins has asked we stand a silent flag line to honor the life and service of their hero. It will be our Honor and privilege to do so.
SPEC-4 (T) Tompkins served Stateside from Aug 1965 -1967 . Mr. Tompkins Loved riding his motorcycles (owning several over the years); enjoyed camping, kayaking and sailing. Of late, his daughter asked him; ‘what do think about having been in the Army’ and his response was- “Best thing I ever did”.
This mission is on Labor Day but early morning so please come honor this veteran and then there will be time to enjoy your holiday.
