Francis A. “Scotty” Thomson, 66, of Tiverton, husband of Julie E. (McDermott) Thomson, passed away Tuesday, January 12, 2021, at Rhode Island Hospital following a sudden illness. Born in Scotland, son of the late Adam G. Thomson and the late Margaret (Smith) Thomson, he resided in Rhode Island most of his life. He, his wife and son lived in Portsmouth for 25 years (in the one Hummocks house taken by the state for construction of the new Sakonnet River Bridge), before moving to Tiverton.

Mr. Thomson studied at the University of San Diego and was employed with Suez Water Environmental Services, Inc., working out of their Newport location, for over twenty years. Scotty was a sports car enthusiast and an avid sports fan. He played soccer in his younger days and later coached a team. He loved fishing and was proud to have once earned first prize in a salmon fishing competition in Ontario. Scotty also loved Julie’s exceptional culinary delights.

Besides his wife, he is survived by a son, Jared A. Thomson of Tiverton, and two nieces and a nephew.
