Michael Allan Thompson
March 08, 2014, 05:00 AM

Michael Allan Thompson, 57, died in the early morning hours of Feb. 5, 2014, after courageously battling a short illness.

Born at Sequoia Hospital Oct. 17, 1956, to Betty Griffith and Jack Thompson, Michael was raised in the Fair Oaks neighborhood of Menlo Park, graduating from Menlo Atherton High School in 1974.

“His enduring ties to the neighborhood and those friends he grew up with remain strong and intact up until this very day; a testimony to Michael’s loyal nature. Michael possessed a true zest for life which led him to travel around the world and to live in such places as Thailand and Amsterdam. His drumming talent was unparalleled among his peers and he shared his passion by teaching the drums to others.”

Over these last few years, Michael had been the proud owner/operator of his own gear shop in Redwood City.

He is survived by his wife Katie, sisters Susan Moore and Patty Emert, and numerous cousins, aunts and uncles. He was preceded in death by his sister Peggy Cobb in 2002.

A private gathering was held earlier in Pescadero to share memories and thoughts about Michael.

“His presence will be missed beyond measure.”
