It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that Robert Thompson passed away earlier today. Robert was a long-time supporter of EAJ and a beloved fixture in the Florida Swimming community. He was a dedicated official for thousands of swimming competitions across all ages and abilities. He was on the pool deck for local youth, summer league, high school, collegiate, national and international events.
Always a true professional, Robert always had a smile on his face as he mentored our up and coming officials. He was helpful, fair and consistent as an official and always willing to help out at our meets. He will be missed by everyone in the swimming community.
Please keep Robert’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
