Thomas J.
Father, the ones You love are sorrowful in announcing the death of their loved one. Thomas Josef Thompson, age 64, of Warsaw, passed away January 27, 2021 at Belton Regional Medical Center following a brief illness. His wife and children were at his side.
Tommy was born March 19, 1956 in Bad Rappenau, Germany. He attended Central High school in Burden, KS and following graduation in 1974, enlisted in the United States Air Force. He returned to the country of his birth for three of those service years. Upon return stateside he employed with the U.S. Army Depot in Pueblo, Co and achieved an Associate of Science Degree from National College Pueblo Extension. His interests led him to pursue a career with the Colorado State Patrol where he served with pride and distinction from 1984-2006. Entwined within those career years, Tommy apprenticed as a tattoo artist and earned a practitioner’s license which he actively maintained until 2019.
Retirement brought Tom great pleasure actively living in the Warsaw community. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and time well spent with family and friends. Our family will forever miss his presence. We will cherish always the character of the man called Tom, Dad, Pops, Grandpa, son, brother, and friend. His ease of a smile, painfully gone.
Tom was preceded in death by his father Lloyd Thompson, step father Charles Lee, and brother-in-law Joseph Scroggins.
