Gary Monroe Thompson
December 14, 1951 - October 30, 2023
With sadness, we announce the passing of Gary Monroe Thompson, our amazing Father, Grandfather (Pop Pop) and friend of many on October 30th, 2023, at the age of 71. Gary was born in Seattle, Washington to parents Gaylin and Lois (Wilson) Thompson.
Gary was abstract, intelligent; always finding new passions and hobbies. Some of his passions included painting, drawing, obtaining his pilot's license, working security and many many more. Each of his passions were generously shared and taught to those around him. He would always find a way to keep himself busy. He was such a silly, goofy guy with a laugh that was so contagious. Even in his last moments, he was cracking jokes. Sometimes he came off with a tough exterior, but he was the biggest teddy bear that loved his family immensely. He was always making friends with anyone who would listen to his new adventures of the day. He always loved to just stop by and say hello!
Gary is survived by his brothers and sisters; Alan (Sue), Gayla (Dennis), Veneta, and Amy (Chad). His children Christopher (Jamie), and Jennifer (Javier). His grandchildren Felicia, Hayley (Gabe), Amanda (Trey), Donovan, Jewel, and Colby. His great grandchildren Braidan, Mylee, Sophia, Mila, and baby Wagers. Along with his companion Sue. Preceded in death by parents Gaylin, Lois, and wife Margaret.
A celebration of life will be held after the Holidays.
"Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow."
