      LIMESTONE - Keith M. Thompson, 85, husband of Mrs. Doris A. (Dexter) Thompson, died Thursday morning May 25, 2006. He was born Oct. 17, 1920, in Limestone, the son of Arthur Leroy and Laila Susan (Long) Thompson. Keith was a graduate of Limestone High School, attended Ricker Classical Institute, and received a degree in agricultural economics from the University of Maine at Orono in 1942. Keith went on to serve in the U.S. Navy during World War II, where he achieved the rank of lieutenant. Keith enjoyed reunions with his fellow officers who served on the USS Duffy, a destroyer escort. Mr. Thompson had been engaged in potato farming for many years and had also been self-employed as a realtor for 18 years. The Thompson family homestead was "up on the hill" bordering Canada overlooking Limestone with full views of the sunrises and sunset of Aroostook County. Keith's father established A. L. Thompson and Sons and farming was the heart of the Thompson family. Keith loved Aroostook County and called it "God's Country." Foremost, Keith loved his family and held long lasting friendships throughout his lifetime. He was kind, compassionate, trustworthy and a loyal friend. He was someone you could count on and a man of unwavering integrity. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was an exceptional storyteller. Keith enjoyed photography and loved music. His mother, Laila, held the gift of music, which was at the heart of the Thompson family. Keith played the saxophone throughout his life and performed in a dance band during the 1950's. During his retirement years, Keith and Doris enjoyed traveling to Europe and Canada and loved their winters on Anna Marie Island and summers on Madawaska Lake. He met Doris A. Dexter at the University of Maine at Orono, whom he married June 4, 1943, at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Lewiston, with whom he shared almost 63 years of love and happiness. Doris is the daughter of Emily and Gen. Daniel S. Dexter, who was an accomplished newspaper journalist and editor. Keith served his community on the Limestone school board for several years. In addition to his parents, Keith was predeceased by two brothers, Colby L. and Curtis A. Thompson; one brother-in-law, David Dexter; and sister-in-law, Margaret Raymond MacLeod. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Doris Ann (Dexter) Thompson of Limestone; one son and daughter-in-law, Stephen and Nona Thompson of Hallowell; one daughter and son-in-law, Susan Thomspon-Cloutier and Jules Cloutier of Topsham; two grandchildren, Laura Thompson Brady and her husband, Damian, of Lewes, Del. and David Stephen Thompson of Hallowell; three sisters-in-law, Neva Ames Thompson of Limestone and Alene Thompson of Presque Isle, Mary (Dexter) Boutin and her husband, Reginald, of Scarborough; numerous nieces and nephews.
