Thompson joined Harris in the early 1950s and was instrumental in designing Harris's first hydraulic scrap shear, introduced in 1952. Thompson, a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), was also instrumental in designing above-ground baler models that replaced earlier generations of below-ground pit balers.
After having helped design the TG line of Harris balers, Thompson retired from Harris in the mid-1970s as its VP-engineering. He is survived by two daughters, Kim Settles and Judy B. Phillips, and four grandchildren.
