J.D. Thompson

Springfield, Mo. - J.D. Thompson suffered a massive stroke on June 3, 2018, and passed on June 8.

He was born to Glen, Sr., and Tressie Thompson near Guffy Creek in Christian County, MO, on October 13, 1940. The family moved to Springfield about the time he started school. He experienced much joy playing Indian Ball, basketball, tennis, and baseball. He loved his Chicago Cubs! He also had a passion for restoring cars and trucks.

J.D. served in the US Army Reserves and was employed by Thomas Market, Ozark Grocers, and General Electric. After retiring, he provided childcare for his two granddaughters.

He was preceded in death by his parents; siblings Wally, Lola, and Bob; and his niece, Sandy. He is survived by his brothers, Glen, Jr., Russell, and Tim; his wife of 57 years, Wanda; his daughter, Debbie, and her husband, Dane; and granddaughters Maria and Olivia.

A graveside service is scheduled for 10 AM Wednesday, June 13, at Greenlawn Cemetery.

The family would like to thank Dr. Duff and Mercy's ER, ICU, and 7E teams; the kind staff at Quail Creek; and Compassus Hospice. Words cannot adequately express our gratitude for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support from family and friends during this incredibly difficult time.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Care to Learn in J.D.'s name.
