Emery Thompson III, 83, of Branson, died on September 28, 2021, passing peacefully in his sleep with a smile. He was born July 6, 1938, in New Rochelle, New York to Emery Thompson Jr. and Betty Kent Thompson.
After graduating from Curry College in New York, he entered the Naval Reserve and served for eight years. He married Virginia Garrison Lane on May 29, 1965, in at- home wedding.

He has two surviving siblings, sister Sandra Engstrom of Scarsdale, NY, and brother Kent Thompson of San Antonio, TX.
Emery's most enduring legacy was a keen sense of humor, and his love of music. He was a faithful member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Trinidad, and loved to sing and play his guitar for Jesus. He loved God, his church, and his family. Emery worked for GE as an appliance repair man before opening his own appliance repair business on Cape Cod from 1973 -1997. Emery built his own light sport airplane in the living room.
