Thompson, Grady W.



Grady W. Thompson died in his home in Albuquerque, NM on March 7, 2017. He was born September 27, 1925 in La Junta, CO to Richard and Jewel Thompson. He was an extraordinary man who loved his family immensely. Grady proudly served in the US Navy during WW II. In 1963 he started a successful business, Thompson Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., which remains in the family today. After retirement in 1983, he and his wife, Lois, hit the road in their motorhome. They traveled from coast to coast, often taking grandchildren along with them. They moved to Sun City West, AZ in 1992, where he was able to play golf daily and had time to enjoy his hobbies, ranging from woodwork to stained glass. He lived out his final years in Albuquerque.

He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Lois Thompson; sister Dixie and husband Bob Bradfield of Denver; his children Dan (Kathie); Gary (Carla); Karen Pieper (Paul); grandchildren Deedra Johnson (Jamie), Brett (Stefanie), Eric (Liana), Julie Moritz (Daniel), and Alison Le Cavalier; and great grandchildren Alexa, Danni, Ellen, Jacob, Jagger and Owen.

He was preceded in death by his parents and granddaughter Laura Thompson-Tafoya.
