John was born May 17, 1936 in Emhouse, Texas, a son of the late John P. Thompson and the late Katie Poarch Thompson.

Our dad was a loving, faithful husband to our mom, Mary Ridgeway Thompson, for 59 years. Together they raised 3 children to whom they taught the values of loving God, working hard, being kind and loving one another. His grandchildren and great-grandchild were the lights of his life and he always loved being with them. He loved his church and worked hard to support it. We will miss him more than words can say!
