  • Note: March 1994; Dan Thompson's House, Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; At 70th Birthday party for Ben Thompson was held at his son, Dan Thompson's house in March 1994 in which Ted Snider and Ben Thompson jammed with their horns. Joe McMullen, leader of the band The Melodeers, which were hired to play at the party, video taped the jam session and some of this band playing. It is priceless! Joe McMullen is providing this video to be conerted into digital and shown at HOH 2015 Feb 21, 22 2015. (Dan Buchanan - I picked up the tape Jan 29 2015)4
  • Note*: circa 1998; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "We are all appreciatively familiar with the credits of the adult Ben (though they bear iterating and reiterating). The Family, the law office, the court room, Parliament, St. Paul's, The Masons, The Legion, the Village of Brighton, the Town of Brighton; not to mention the golf course and the "hot" trombone. And then there was the social conscience and the unerring sense of "the right thing to do". We, and there are so, so many of us, have but late bidden Ben a fond farewell. Citizen Ben. Yes. But, also, let's not forget the small boy who gazed out windows and dreamed. Because we hazard the guess that we all may very well have generously benefited from those same childhood dreams. 31 March 1998" the last paragraphs of "Ben", the first article in "Over My Shoulder, An Anthology of Brighton Memories", by Peter J. McConnell, Connolly Publishing Ltd., Brighton, 1998
    Note: The surname of "Ben" is not mentiioned in Peter's article but it was clear to me it was referring to Ben Thompson.

(Yes, I was there too. And after walking my young lady home, I remember, literally, hanging on to one of those great Maples on Main Street – destined to fall in the same tornado that took the hall – as I fought my way to my great aunt’s home (now the residence of George and Lynn May).” “Over My Shoulder” by Peter McConnell, pg. 6
