Lawrence Thompson

Oct 30, 2018

Morrill — Lawrence "Larry" E. Thompson was born to Nadine Thompson on April 7, 1942, in Morrill.  He passed away Oct. 19, 2018, just the way he wanted to, at home and living independently.

Larry served in the U.S. Air Force from December 1959 through December 1967. He started in the 42D Combat Defense Squad. He served in Morocco, at Loring Air Force Base here in Maine, Belgium and Minot Air Force Base, N.D., finishing in the 862 Sec. Police Squad.

He spent several years in North Dakota driving a big rig throughout the Midwest and West Coast. He moved back to Maine in 1978. He worked for Maurice Pooler, drove truck for Delta Chemical and worked at East Side Garage until he retired.

He was busier than ever in his retirement as he was the family mechanic and fix-it person.  If it had an engine he could fix it. He was always helping someone fix or build something. He loved classic cars and could often be found tinkering on them in his front yard.

Larry is survived by his daughter Cristy and her partner Rick, son Jay and partner Lee.  Larry had four grandchildren: Ben and his partner Mindy, Sara, Jamie and her husband Kevin, and Kyle; eight great-grandchildren: Addy, Jensen, Sylas, Autumn, Dom, Tegan, Jace and Leighton. Larry is also survived by brothers, Edwin, Bobby, Richard, Timmy, Billy, Kenny and Blake; sisters Nancy, Tootie, Janice, Peggy, Carolyn, Phyllis, Juanita and Shelley.

He was predeceased by his mother Nadine and stepfather Frank Brown; brother Raymond; and sisters Maryann and Ginger.

No services are planned at his request.
