Life Legacy

Thomas Robert Thompson, 64, Mandan, North Dakota, passed away Saturday, June 15, 2013, at his home with his family by his side after a courageous battle with A.L.S. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 PM, Thursday, June 27, 2013, at DaWise-Perry Funeral Services, Mandan with Rev. Jack Carlson officiating. There will be a gathering of friends and family one hour prior to the service at DaWise-Perry Funeral Services. There will be no viewing, as cremation has taken place.

Tom was born September 14, 1948, in Vancouver, Washington, to Robert Todd and Marie Shroyer. He was raised by his mom and stepdad, Bill and Marie Thompson in Casper, WY until 1954 when they moved to Mandan, ND. During his High School years he went to Volkswagen School in Chicago, IL, and then graduated from Mandan High School in 1968. After high school, Tom worked as an Automotive Technician at Century Motors. He also drove truck and worked many years in home construction. He married Pamela Harm and together had two children–they were later divorced. On April 20, 2000, he married Connie Suchy in Mandan.

In his younger years it would not be uncommon to find Tom strumming his guitar and singing with friends and family. Tom had a love for the outdoors. Often when the kids were growing up, you would find him and the family camping and fishing at the lake or hunting pheasants. He enjoyed woodworking and was well known for his finish carpentry skills. Tom’s most recent passion was the farmstead that he and Connie shared. You would often find him tending to the horses, chickens, gineas, and his dear old friend Pete the peacock. You might even find him catching a nap in his favorite hammock or fueling his love of photography by snapping photos of beautiful sunsets, farm animals, or his dog Nikki.

He is survived by his wife, Connie, Mandan; one daughter, Shannon (William) Williams, Bossier City, Louisiana, one son, Eric (Susie) Thompson, Mandan; five sisters, Donna Thompson, Blackwell, Oklahoma, Judy Burchfield, Rockledge, Florida, Lois (Milo) Kalvoda, Mandan, Jane Enyart, Bismarck, and SanDee (Bill) Tomlinson, Ignacio, Colorado; four grandchildren, Cody, Paxton, Jenna and Kylie; many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents, and one brother, William (Billy).
