Shane William Thompson was born in Denver Colorado on July 21, 1980. He sadly left us on Sept 19, 2020.
He aspired to be a bit of a class comedian, and enjoyed making people laugh. Throughout his life, he would trade anything in the world to go fishing. Though he enjoyed entertaining, he had a big heart, and would give to those in need, almost to a fault. His generous heart and kind nature found him a flock of friends everywhere he went. After living in Montana for most of his youth, it would be in Colorado, and eventually Texas, that he would become a man, and truly find himself. There in Texas, Shane met the love of his life, Kristin, as well as his other love… The ocean… He excelled in retail management, and had just received a big promotion, and gotten married when tragedy struck in the form a swimming accident, leaving Shane paralyzed from the mid-chest down. After the accident, Shane and Kristin parted and Shane moved back to Montana. He re-focused his energy on a new life. Onward he fought through his paralysis to bring his presence and kind personality to everyone he met. Shane will certainly be missed by those who knew and loved him, he was a hero to many, especially his family. He leaves a hole that only he could fill and to those who never had the pleasure, are left wanting.
He is survived by his parents, Eric and Threase Thompson; his brothers and sisters, Thomas, Daniel, Samantha, Jackie, Jennifer Downey; his nieces and nephews, Raine, Mara, Atrus, Leandra, Landyn, Brody, Bridger, Blake, Jarek, Abriana.
We would like to thank Scott who helped Shane in many ways to keep rolling along.
Shane will be greatly missed by his burden and pain are gone and now he kneels before the throne. Ever present with his Jesus. Walk on S-Dawg, walk on.
