Ronald "Lawrence" Thompson

August 31, 1959 ~ June 3, 2023 (age 63) 63 Years Old


It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our dad (Papa), Ronald Lawrence Thompson at the age of 63, beloved husband, father, and Papa on June 3rd, 2023.

He leaves to mourn: his wife Judy of 43 years, his son Rockey & (Charlene), his daughter Lauren & (Kendall), his grandchildren: Summer, Rihanna, and baby Rockey, Dominic, Brooklynn, Rayne, Avery, and baby Kendall, and future grand daughter - Baby Lawren.

Also to mourn his passing are: his siblings Bryan & (Bella), Edward & (Patsy), Sharon & (John), Audrey, Leslie, Dinah, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Lawrence was predeceased by his parents Frank and Lizzie Thompson, his sisters Nancy, Brothers, Daniel, Chippy, Ronald, Walter; Nephews: Erik and Michael Thompson; Nieces: Melissa Thompson and Shayna Choken.

Lawrence was raised and lived in Duck Bay all his Life. He then met his wife Judy whom he was with for 43 years and raised their children. He and his wife lived in Flin Flon for a few months where he worked at the HBMS Mine. He decided it wasn’t what he wanted to do. They then came back home and started fishing along side his brothers up until he got his own fishing license and became self employed. He then went onto working as a fish packer, packing fish for the Matkowskis for a number of years. Following that he packed fish for his brother Bryan, Edward, his son Rocky and some of his nephews. They did a great number of housing renovations in and around surrounding communities. They were involved in the building of the Community Hall, Fire Hall, and numerous other buildings all over, including going up to Church Hill to build a Hall in freezing temperatures. No job was to big or to small for these brothers who enjoyed doing what they loved doing. From there he went on to work for Minish Construction in Swan River, where he was still currently working till now. During his weekends off, you could always find him doing renovations still for other people and could not say no to whomever needed his help, in other words, he hardly ever had a day off; always had to be doing something. If he was ever needed by any of his children or grandchildren, he was there for them always with his big smile.

Our Dad/Papa was a very strong and hard working man and no other can ever fill his shoes! He always made sure he had time for his grandchildren. Whenever they needed him or to drive them somewhere and all that he did, he did for us and his grandchildren whom he deeply cherished.

Rest easy now Dad/Papa, its unfortunate but its time you rest! We love you Dad/Papa and we will forever miss you. You left us a lot of memories we will forever cherish in our hearts, love you Dad/Papa.
