9/12/1950 - 11/7/2020
Beloved husband and friend to many, Brian Allan Thompson died on Nov. 7, 2020. Brian was a truck driver, driving big rigs cross-country. His last job was at OST, which he loved. On June 30, 1990, Brian had a brain stem stroke which left him totally disabled. He was mentally all there and did sign language. He loved to kid around and laugh (he had that smile), always kidding around with his caregivers.
Brian loved going to the movies, The Palms, The Deer Lodge, visiting OST and buying Lotto tickets. He especially loved living in La Conchita where he would sit and wait for the trains. The conductors even got to know him sitting there, and they would wave a white piece of paper or blow a special whistle for him.
Thanks to all of you that were so kind to him and said “Hello” and talked to him. Like Mike Bell (mayor of La Conchita) says, “You never really leave La Conchita.”
Fare thee well for now. Love and miss you.
