Thomas Thompson

August 21, 1946 — February 2, 2024

Thomas Lynn Thompson, 77, of Waco, fell asleep and went Home Friday, February 2, 2024. Graveside services will be 2 p.m. Wednesday, February 7 at Itasca Cemetery with Brother Robert Buchanan officiating. Tommy will be lying in state Tuesday, February 6 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. for friends and family to pay respects.

Tommy was born in Hillsboro, Texas to Aubrey H. Thompson Sr. and Frances Marie (Kendrick) Thompson on August 21, 1946. After completing his education at Hillsboro schools, he graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1969. Prior to his graduation, he met and married the love of his life, Bettye Davis in the summer of 1968. Moving from Harlingen to Oklahoma, they finally came back and settled in Waco in 1972 where he established Thompson Pest Control. He proudly practiced his forty-year career and established many life-long friendships until his health started declining in 2016.

Left behind to cherish his memory are his daughter, Nicole Kappes and husband Ryan and their children Logan, Landon, Kannon, and Kolton; his son, Paul Thompson and wife Paige and their children Braley, Brooke, Kole, Lindsey, Noah, Nash, and Gunner.

The family would like to thank Dr. Michael Loden and Lauren Armstrong RN for improving the quality of our dad’s life in the last five months and the nurses of Ascension Providence 3 East for their excellent care and compassion.

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
