He was born November 18, 1953 in West Palm Beach, Florida, son of the late Donald and Joan Thompson. He answered the Lord's call on his life into ministry with the Christian & Missionary Alliance, serving for the last 6 ½ years as pastor at the Broadway Alliance Church in East McKeesport. He was a humble man with a true servant's heart, as evidenced by the love and respect he was shown not only from his congregation, but the community at large.

Thompson; children Christine Thompson of Butler, Nicole (Jason) Rath of Butler, Patrick (Leah) King of Pittsburgh and Megan Patton of Butler; 8 grandchildren; 3 brothers; 2 sisters; and many nieces and nephews.
