Hugh Thompson was a wonderful person and a selfless volunteer. Our Admirals family is saddened by the loss of a parent in our community. A GoFundMe campaign set up to support his family.
Here is the message from the GoFundMe page:
Our community is devastated by the sudden loss of our dear friend Hugh. He died Friday (May 7) while mountain biking on a trail at Shawnigan Lake. While Hugh (49) died doing what he loved, he was far too young to be taken from his family and our community. We are now rallying to support his wife Paige and their two sons Avery (12) and Kaito (4).
Donations will be used to create a scholarship for Avery and Kaito to ensure these two amazing boys can pursue their dreams.
