Terry Thompson Obituary
Thompson, Terry
Terry Scott Thompson, loving husband, father, son, brother and friend passed July 31, 2017. He lived a life of grace, love and humor. A life long resident of Upper Arlington, Ohio he felt life was complete once he met Teresa and had his son, Taos and daughter, Townsend. He loved them unconditionally. He was a coach, a scout leader and loved to cook. He taught by example and faced adversity with dignity and hope. He never knew a stranger, laughed easily and was filled with a sense of optimism that was contagious. He loved the outdoors, music of all kinds, especially the Grateful Dead, and the author, Hunter S. Thompson. He was a world class skier which took him to Wyoming and Colorado to live, where he made life long friends, before settling back in UA. He had a taste for adventure which left him stranded on Grand Teton Mountain for 3 days in a blizzard and plucked from the Colorado River on a whitewater rafting trip. His compassion for others led him to 20+ years volunteering with Special Olympics. He was a third generation IBEW electrician for over 30 years before retiring due to an illness – MSA - which cut his life short. He is survived by his wife, Teresa; children, Taos (16) and Townsend (14); siblings, Tammy (Rick) Thompson and Tim (Kim) Thompson; nieces, Sarah and Megan; and mother, Jeanne Thompson whom he adored and from whom he learned the art of love and loyalty. Terry is preceded in death by his father, Paul Thompson.
