SWANVILLE — Brian Clifford Thompson, 62, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at home Jan. 17, 2022. Born May 29, 1959, to Clifford and Marlene Thompson of Jackson, Brian was a graduate of CMCC with an associate degree in architectural engineering and most recently employed at Merriam Architects of Rockland.

Brian was passionate about many things. He was a Reiki master, a loyal member and chaplain of the Red Knights, a dedicated Patriot Guard Rider, and an ordained minister. He took great pride in his country, honoring fallen soldiers, and let’s not forget the notorious cowbell and his loud voice cheering on the high school sports.

Brian was known for having a kind soul and big heart, who would always be willing to listen and comfort anyone who needed it. Among his greatest joys were his children and grandchildren, as well as his parents. He’s now been reunited with his beloved wife, Cathy, and many other family and friends predeceased.

He is survived by his parents, Clifford and Marlene, of Jackson; his sister, Rochelle, and Phil Shaw of Dayton; his children, Christopher Thompson of Swanville; Shannon and husband Kevin Buttermore of Guilford, N.H.; Sienna Gilmore of Moyock, N.C.; and Brian and wife Libbie Thompson of Frankfort; his grandchildren, Gavin, Kadyn, Madyson, Catherine, Reid, Ryleigh and Scarlett; his dog, Daisie, and many other family and friends. Lastly, we cannot forget his pride and joy, a white 2017 Victory motorcycle.

A celebration of life will be held at Riposta Funeral Home, 182 Waldo Ave., Belfast, Saturday, Feb. 12, from 2 to 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made in his name to the Travis Mills Foundation.
