Mark F. Thompson, one of our three honorary classmates died Dec. 1, 1995, at Princeton Medical Center. He was 45. Mark was born in Bayonne, N.J. He was a graduate of Dickinson H.S. in Jersey City and attended Jersey City State College. He had worked at Firestone for nine years, first as a shelver, then as a security officer, and finally as a security supervisor. Besides the chatting Mark did with the thousands of students who passed by each day, he also enjoyed fishing, camping, and cooking.
We remember Mark today for the same qualities that led us to invite him to join our class. With an easygoing sense of humor and sharp wit, Mark did everything he could to make our visits to the library more enjoyable than they otherwise would have been. As we return to campus in the future, we will recall his friendship.
