Larry J. Thompson

NORTH KINGSVILLE — Larry J. Thompson, age 47, of North Kingsville, passed away in his home on Friday, July 5, 2013, following an 8 month courageous fight with cancer.

He was born July 21, 1965, in Ashtabula, Ohio, the son of James and Frances (Zimmerman) Thompson.

An avid sportsman, Larry was well known for his passion for wood, a tall oak tree or a fallen maple, which he used to heat his home and to hold year round bonfires each Friday night. On any nice weekend, he could be seen working in the yard followed by at least one devoted dog, unless of course there was a NASCAR race.

Larry was very involved with his children’s activities at Edgewood Senior High School, the Kingsville Little League, and 4-H. He spent 20 years with his work family at CSP of Ohio with the last few years spent as a tow motor operator doing outside utility. He is remembered by family and friends for a unique sense of humor, a quick smile, and the sense of calm he brought to any situation. He also enjoyed traveling for vacations and NASCAR races.

Larry is survived by Michelle, his loving wife of 20 years; children, Kacie 21, Morgan 19 and Dustin 17; parents, Jim and Fran Thompson of Jefferson, Ohio; siblings, Don (Theresa) Thompson of Glendale, Ariz., Scott (Dee) Thompson of Jefferson, Ohio and Gary (Diane) Thompson of Ocala, Fla.; sister-in-law, Debbie Wentworth; brother-in-law, Mark Wentworth; brother-in-law, Andy Bean; father-in-law, David Bean; mother-in-law, Carol (Wayne) Jewell; nieces and nephews, Phil Wentworth, Courtney Wentworth, Lauren Thompson, Chris Thompson, Brandon Thompson, Emilee Thompson and Hannah Thompson; and countless other family and friends.

Funeral Service will be held 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 9th, at the Ashtabula Home of FLEMING & BILLMAN FUNERAL DIRECTORS, 526 W. Prospect Road, Ashtabula, with the Rev. April Osborne, Chaplain of Tridia Hospice, officiating.

Calling Hours will be held from 5 to 8 p.m., Today, July 8th, and on Tuesday from 5 p.m. until the time of Service at the Funeral Home.

Memorial contributions can be made to CSP Pressing for Cure Relay for Life Team or to the North Kingsville Woodlands and Wetland LLC.
