Elden Thompson Obituary

Elden Blaine Thompson, 71, peacefully passed away at his home in Washington, Utah, on July 10, 2018. He was born Oct. 1, 1946, in Blackfoot to Ralph and Eldie Thompson. Elden married his sweetheart and eternal companion, Ina Lynne Tolman, on Sept. 24, 1971, in the Los Angeles LDS Temple.

Elden was raised in southeast Idaho and lived in Blackfoot, Michigan and later Washington, Utah. Everywhere Elden lived, he was an active member of the Boy Scouts of America and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many leadership roles. His professional career spanned multiple power and energy companies including the Idaho National Laboratory and Consumer Power, holding various roles in management and quality assurance.

Elden loved to spend time with his family and was a proud member of the Shoshone Bannock Tribe. He was a consummate gentleman and was always serving his family and all those around him even during the last few years of his life when he graciously battled multiple difficult medical conditions. His love and devotion to his family will be greatly missed.

He is survived by wife, Ina Thompson, of Washington, Utah; children: James (Teresa) Thompson, of Granger, Indiana; Jennifer (John) Cameron, of Blackfoot; Michael (Kristen) Thompson, of Washington, Utah; and Scott (Michelle) Thompson, of Scottsdale, Arizona; along with 11 grandchildren. He is preceded in death by two grandsons, Jacob and Logan Cameron, and his parents, Ralph and Eldie Thompson.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, July 16, at Washington Fields Chapel located at 1867 Washington Fields Road in Washington, Utah. Viewing will take place Sunday from 6-8 p.m. at Spilsbury Mortuary and Monday morning 9-10:30 a.m. at the Washington Fields Chapel. Interment will take place at Washington City Cemetery at 300 Parkview Drive, Washington, Utah.

The family would like to give special thanks to the nurses and staff at Dixie Home Rehab and Hospice, as well as Lori, Loretta and Fran who took special care of him during the last few weeks of his life.
