Eustice Wade Thompson

Ceres, Va.

Eustice Wade Thompson, age 79, passed away Thursday, September 9, 2021, at Carrington Place of Rural Retreat.

Wade left a legacy of music behind for generations to hear and love. He was a wonderful musician – especially with the banjo. If you were in a bad mood, Wade would have you laughing and smiling in no time. His music and fun personality will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Beverly and Mildred Thompson; sister, Alma Hester; and love of his life, Lucille Veva Thompson.

Wade is survived by his daughter, Patricia Diane Fontello of Ceres, Va.; brother-in-law, Ray Hester of Marion, Va.; three grandchildren, Florence Fontello, Laura Fontello and Hunter Fontello; six great-grandchildren; niece, Elma Wyatt and husband, Rhudy of Ceres, Va.; nephew, Tommy Hester and wife Sandy of Marion, Va.; great-nephew Lee Wyatt of Ceres, Va.; and great neighbors, Harmon Boyd and Buddy Kirby, both of Ceres, Va.
