Obituary for Dennis Franklin Thompson

January 2, 1956 - December 31, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 61


Dennis Franklin Thompson, 61, passed away unexpectedly on December 31,2017 in San Antonio, Texas. He was born on January 2, 1956 in Gatesville, Texas. He graduated from Gatesville High School in 1974 and received a Bachelor's in Business Administration from Baylor University in 1980.

He is preceded in death by his parents Mary Blackwell and Jimmie Thompson as well as his beloved sister Mary Ann Durfee. He is survived by his sons Christopher Travis Thompson and wife Lindsey, and Mark Aaron Thompson and wife Marissa. He was a doting grandfather to Madeline, Connor, Katelyn and Olivia. He is loved and remembered by his siblings Martha Russell, Sonny Garman and wife Melissa, Keith Thompson and wife Beth, Chris Thompson, Debbie Rhudy and husband Tim, and LaDonna Pederson and husband Shane, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Dennis was extremely proud of both of his sons' accomplishments and wasn't afraid to tell you about them. He really enjoyed being around his grandchildren and there were often shouts of "Papaw's here!" whenever he arrived. His joy was evident whenever he was around his grandbabies, sons and family and his laughter with them will never be forgotten.

A private family service will be held in Gatesville, Texas to honor his passing.

A Celebration of Life is set for Thursday, January 11th at River Crossing Country Club in Spring Branch, Texas starting at 11am.
We ask that in lieu of flowers please donate to the 100 Club of San Antonio in his name.
