Obituary for Douglas G. Thompson

July 27, 1933 - November 3, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 86


Douglas G. Thompson, 86, passed through death into the arms of the Lord on Sunday, November 3, 2019. He was born in McFarland, Wisconsin, on July 27, 1933 to Arne and Cora Thompson. Douglas was married to his wife, Cynthia Thompson, on June 18, 1955. Douglas is preceded in death by his wife Cynthia; his son, James Douglas; his brother, Arne (Lee) Thompson; and his sister, Ann Marie Thompson. He is survived by his children David (D'Anne) Thompson (San Antonio, TX), Michael (Kimberly) Thompson (Vancouver, WA), and Ann Marie Thompson (Fred Yeadon) (Holcombe, WI); and grandchildren Rachel Hannah Thompson and Caleb Paul Thompson.

Douglas graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1955 and spent most of his life self-employed, first as a pharmacist in Cambridge, WI, and when he and Cynthia moved the family to Texas in 1977, as the owner of multiple motels in Central Texas. He and Cynthia retired to Lake Buchanan, Texas, in 1990 where they were able to spend much time with their grandchildren, Rachel and Caleb.

Douglas was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather; as well an admired employer and mentor. He loved the Lord and exhibited God's grace in all that he did for his family throughout his life. His life displayed his incredible faith and he was a witness and spiritual mentor to many during his time on this earth.

A Memorial Service celebrating Doug's life and the Lord's victory will be held at Willerup Methodist Church in Cambridge, WI, in the spring of 2020.

"Jesus said…, 'I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die…'" (John 11:25-26, NASB)
