Sad news[edit]

User:Kbthompson died on 10 December 2010. He was born in 1955. -- Ssilvers (talk) 04:15, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

I've shut off the Metropolitan and Wikimedia UK subscriptions. Looking over the history, I can't see any other active newsletters to which he subscribed. – iridescent 12:55, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Kbthompson's funeral will be on Wednesday, 22 December 2010, and his remains will be cremated. His widow has seen this page and expressed her thanks. -- Ssilvers (talk) 19:40, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
Rest in peace, dear Wikipedian. We promise, we'll never forget your contributions!

  • I'm dreadfully sorry to hear this. He was consistently helpful, patient and interesting, qualities in too-short supply. My sincere sympathies are with everyone who knew him, both in the real world and on Wikipedia. – iridescent 12:57, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

  • My deepest condolences goes to Kbthompson and his family as well. Darth Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 06:23, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
  • I first met Kbthompson at a London Wikimeet I organized in early 2009. What an amazing personality that will be dearly missed by myself and others in "real life" and here on Wikipedia. We will always remember him for his lovely character and his great work here on Wikipedia. My condolences to his family and friends. Poeloq (talk) 22:42, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Though I did not have the honour of knowing him or interacting with him, my deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. MikeLynch (talk) 16:31, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
  • I enjoyed interacting with him through WP and so it is sad to see him go, although I never met him physically. I did respect him, especially as one of the earliest people i met on WP. Condolences to other friends and family. Simply south (talk) 17:50, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
  • This is just too sad, and far too untimely. He was terrifically helpful, kind and encouraging when I was re-writing Hampton Court Palace, and our paths crossed from time to time when I delved into other London buildings. Always so ready to assist; what a loss to the project and doubtless even more so to his family and real life friends, who have my sympathy. Requiescat in pace.  Giacomo  19:58, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
  • My condolences. Ucucha 23:29, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

  • My condolences. bibliomaniac15 05:49, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
  • My deepest condolences. He clearly enjoyed sharing his wide knowledge here and was a genuine pleasure to work with. It is a great loss. MRSC (talk) 07:47, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
  • My condolences. (A. Carty (talk) 15:54, 18 December 2010 (UTC))
  • I had the pleasure of getting to know him a bit through private correspondence and he was a big help to me beyond the scope of Wikipedia. His experiences in helping take care of his parents before they passed away would prove to be very helpful to me when the time came for me to do the same. This loss comes as a shock. He will be sorely missed. He was Crème de la crème of Wikipedians. My deepest sympathies to his family.

  • I've just learned of his death. I think we first crossed paths when I was creating Newington Green Unitarian Church; I really appreciated his helpful, kind suggestions. A great loss. BrainyBabe (talk) 12:23, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
  • We interacted several times on these talk pages over articles relating to London theatre, for which we both shared a passion. He was a lovely man, and we are all poorer without him. Rest in peace, KB. --Peripatetic (talk) 12:19, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
  • I never knew him, but as sad as it is to me to see any editor leaving Wikipedia, it's even sadder knowing he cannot return, either to Wikipedia or to those whom he loves. If you are still watching this page now, may I express my sorrow for your loss. CycloneGU (talk) 02:50, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
  • My condolences go out to his family and friends. I didn't know him personally but he sounded like a great man. - KingRaven (>$.$)> (talk) 08:34, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Just found out now. I am so sorry for your loss. I never met him physically, but he was intelligent, kind and very helpful to me when we interacted here. A very nice person he was!( (talk) 07:02, 27 September 2012 (UTC))
  • Kbthompson produced some very valuable work on the East End (especially the East End of London). He lives on through his contributions to this project. SilkTork ✔Tea time 00:56, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
  • I often come across his work. Today (again) I found an article that we had both worked on. Gordo (talk) 06:45, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
  • How sad. I just came across his article on the Red Lion Theatre, and can see what a loss his death has been to Wikipedia. NinaGreen (talk) 00:53, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

London theatre
Thank you for your legacy of quality articles on and around London theatres, such as East End of London, Her Majesty's Theatre and Music Hall, - sad that I noticed your contributions only now: you were an awesome Wikipedian!
