I am devastated that I am reading this right now! I do feel lucky that I did get to know him, his children, and grand children personnaly. He raised and loved his daughters, son and grand children, like no other man I have ever met!!!! He was hard working, loving, kind, and self-sacrificing. Everyone that met him, loved him! I know that his children and grand children, especially Haily will have a deep hole in their heart as they were the closest knit family I have ever had the pleasure of meeting!! He is going to be dearly missed!!!!!

My heartfelt condolences to the entire family.  Dave was always kind and caring to my daughter and I, and opened up his home to us when we needed help the most.  I will never forget his compassion and I am truly grateful for having known him.  I wish the family nothing but the best during this difficult time, and I am sending all my thoughts and prayers to you now.  I am truly sorry for your loss.

My deepest condolences.  I remember David as a funny, smart alec in high school. He always had everyone around him laughing even the teacher’s. He disrupted class most days and if not he wasnt there at all. I know this is a great loss for your family and I’m sorry for the pain this has caused you all.

I had the great pleasure of getting to know Dave a few years ago while playing on a pool league.  I always remember him smiling and talking about how proud of his kids he was.  Wishing the entire family comfort and sending prayers for healing.

I have known Dave over half of my life. I have know his daughter Megan, and all of the Thompson kids, since grade school and spent countless hours at their house as I was growing up. Dave was one of my first softball coaches as well. He will be missed by many people, including myself and my parents. To all the Thompson kids, my heart aches for you but know, your dad will never be forgotten.
