    Words cannot express the sadness that we feel. Our thoughts are with the family and the many friends who were touched by Steven’s kind heart and good deeds.

      I am so very sorry to hear about Steve. I got acquainted with him when I worked at Regal. Such a kind person. Loved his quiet laugh. Praying for all.

    So sorry for you guys. I met Mr. Steve Thompson in a way most people would not expect. He helped me out more than he realized. I had no idea how detailed he would keep watch on the situation, let’s just say it was detailed down to the minute and he helped to solve a major case. In dealing with Steve I felt like we had known each other our whole lives as we talked hotrods and trucks. I could tell he remembered more about mechanical things than the average man would. I see these things in his son Buddy to in how detail oriented he is in everything he does. The world could stand to have a lot more Steve Thompson’s in it for sure.

    I have known Steve since our kindergarten days and always considered him the best of friends. Steve had that childlike curiosity yet had the manly ability to delve into a project and not only fix it but sometimes make an improvement to the task at hand. I have been blessed to know Steve and his family. Condolences to all.

    Very sad to hear of Steve’s passing. We were childhood friends and graduated high school together. We used to cruise around town in his 289 Ford Fairlane, which he also built from scavenged parts.
    My sympathies to the Thompson family. He was a good friend and will be missed.

    So sorry to hear that Steven is gone; He was indeed an uncommon man. Once when he was doing some work at my house, I decided to show him a dog that a friend of mine made out of various steel pieces: nuts and bolts, various short lengths of pipe, and some kind of mechanism. He looked it over, and over again, then glanced at me and said “That’s interesting, but what if somebody needs this here valve?”
    He will not be forgotten. Blessings of comfort to the family. Love, Lois reborne

    Dear Buddy, Lauren, and Family: Betty and I were very sad to hear about Steve’s passing. I’ve only known him for 3-4 years but in that short period I’ve come to appreciate and admire him. He has helped me out many times with small engine problems and has charged me very little in spite of my attempts to pay him the going rate. He always had many interesting stories to tell and his memory was truly amazing. If there is a memorial service in the future, please let me know. I hope that my Savior will look as favorably on me as I’m certain he looks on Steve. Stephen and Betty Coats

    My deepest sympathy to the Thompson family. It is always hardest to lose a child my Mom told me, and it breaks my heart to know your hearts are broken. May the memories of Steve brighten your days in the time to come and take away a bit of the grief with each memory. Love and prayers, Karla
