Busy Bee Nashville Rep Jim Thompson Has Passed Away

December 26, 2012 in Editorials

JIM THOMPSON, our Busy Bee Trader Nashville Representative for the past 15 years, passed away on Friday, Dec. 21 while duck hunting in Missouri – doing what he loved to do most.

His friends and customers will know that he had a previous heart attack, but had been feeling fine. I had talked to him before he left to make arrangements for his Busy Bee January delivery, and he was so excited to be headed out to hunt in the inclement weather. “That’s the best weather for hunting!” he told me last week when I asked why he was heading into such nasty weather to hunt.

He was a big part of our Busy Bee family and will be so missed.

Here is his obituary.
