Mark Thomas Thompson
Aug. 14, 1959 - April 3, 2023

Mark Thomas Thompson was born August 14, 1959 in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin and passed away on April 3, 2023 at his home, surrounded by his family.

Mark was a skilled mechanic who spent 40 years in the industry. He made many lifelong friends in his field, including his very dear friend Morgan (Abby). He never hesitated to help someone in need or share his vast mechanical knowledge. He enjoyed good music and good food and spending time with family and friends. He was a collector who has various collections, most notably his model cars, coins, and sports memorabilia. He was a die-hard Packers fan and often told stories of attending games at Lambeau Field with is father as a child. You could find him on a Sunday morning with a cup of coffee in his garden admiring the flowers. He was an animal lover who spoiled his dogs as he did his children. He was a spiritual man who valued his relationship with the Lord.

Mark was very loved and will be deeply missed by his family. We do not have the words to describe how much he truly meant to us all. He always had a big smile on his face, a twinkle in his bright blue eyes, and a booming laugh that would make anyone smile. Most of all, we were so lucky to be loved by him.

Mark is preceded in death by his father, Raymond Thompson; mother, Anna Eastridge; stepfather, Max Eastridge; and uncle, Fritz Thomas. Mark is survived by his life partner, Laura Stephens, with whom he spent 29 loving years; his sisters Kris Bosworth (Rob) and Karen Thompson; niece Halle Bosworth; beloved cousin Thomas Honeycutt (Susan); daughters Gina Thompson, Marlena Thompson, Maria Hadenfeldt, Tiana Davis (Ben); sons Tyler Davis (Kim), Raymond Thompson, James Hughes (Ong), Scott Hughes; his many other honorary children and grandchildren; his grandchildren, RayJ, Jaydn, Helen, Nicholas, Destiny, Truitt, Bryce, Rebekah(Cody), Bailey(Cayden), Bentley, Charlie, Pheonix, Lilly, Carson, Colin, Cadence; and great-granddaughter, Hadley. He was a proud Papa who loved spending time with all of his grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the medical team who cared for Mark, especially Dr. Ruben Brinckhaus and Fortuna Family Medical Center and the Oncology staff at St Joseph’s hospital.

A celebration of Mark’s life will be held at the Rio Dell Fire Hall on Saturday, June 10, at 2 p.m. All are welcome, please bring a memory and a smile to share with the family.
