Its a one year retirement visa

In that case it's a multi entry non O-A  or ME non O retirement.

Where did you obtain the visa

Need to be particular with terms.

Seems you had an agent obtain a non O based on retirement along with 12 month extension and in addition obtained a multi reentry permit. 

Where were the stamps issued.

At Jomtien immigration or up country. 

 

You do not have a "one year retirement visa" 

Yes a non O based on retirement for one year from Immigration Chonburi

You need to check with the agent.

 

Jomtien immigration might cancel it if was issued there. 

If they will then have the reentry permit cancelled and just fly out.

Nobody asked the simple question, did your agent collect the 5700 baht fee for TM7 at 1900 baht + another 3800 baht for the multiple entry exit extension TM8? Or just the 1900 baht extension fee. As others mentioned if 1900 (TM7) baht extension just exit country without entry permit to cancel visa. If you have the multiple entry permit (TM8) I would suggest either asking the IO at your departure to cancel your Multi permit or go to an IMM office and have them down grade it for you.

As everybody already confirmed, when exiting Thailand without a Re-Entry Permit the Permit to stay of your Non Imm O Visa based 1-year extension will be automatically voided.

But if you did buy a Re-Entry Permit that complicates things. So do check in your passport whether you have a Re-Entry Permit stamp (it will have same expiry date as your current Permit to stay).

In that case there are 2 options:

1 - Do not return to Thailand before expiry of that Re-Entry Permit

2 - If that's not what you plan, try to have that Re-Entry Permit cancelled. 

You can try to get it cancelled at your local Imm Office, or ask a Visa Agent to do it for you.

Alternatively when returning to Thailand you can request the border-immigration officer to ignore the Re-Entry Permit and stamp you in VisaExempt (but not sure whether he/she would do so).
