Lance Thompson

Lance Thompson,  “Bubba,” has made his way home to Heaven. He left us all with a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. We only find comfort during these trying times knowing that Lance is making his way around heaven putting smiles everywhere he goes like he did here on earth.

Lance was born May 16, 1996 and left us on October 24, 2020. During his 24 years with us here, he always brought a smile to everyone he met, and he never met a stranger. Lance loved spending time with loved ones at the river. Lance also loved playing high school football for the Indians and even got to play a little college ball with his best friend Trae Harrington.  After College Lance joined the Marines, which he loved very much. He made impressions on many of his Marine brothers that will never be forgotten.

When Lance left us, he left behind many friends and loved ones, his Daddy and Moma, Rodney and Tina Thompson; his Mom and Stepdad, Rebecka and Ronnie Gallups; his siblings, Heather Hunter, Ethan (Hodgie) Hunter, Kalee (Thompson) Gould, along with her Husband Daniel Gould, and Kaden Gallups; his nephews, Brantley and Gavin Graham; his grandparents, Papa (Dwight Thompson), Papaw and Gege (John and Debbie Downs) and his Nana (Carrie Proctor); his aunts and uncles, Brain and Mickey Thompson, Tift and  Shirley Thompson, and Travis and Brandy Thompson, along with many more loved ones. 

Lance was loved by many and enjoyed bringing happiness to others. He will truly be missed.
