Brady Don Thompson
1991 ~ 2010
Brady, age 18, started his next mission after succumbing to his life-long battle with uncontrolled seizures on Sept. 3, 2010. Brady was born on Nov. 22, 1991, at approximately 9:00 a.m. in Provo, Utah. He was entrusted into his parents' care about 12 hours later by a loving birth mother.
Brady absolutely loved life. His infectious smile and his big brown eyes could tell you everything he wanted you to know. He loved being outside. He loved anything to do with hunting. Big bucks were his favorite. His happy "squeal" let you know he was feeling pure joy and happiness in the moment. He enjoyed going anywhere with his dad, whether it was at work "bossing the job," "cruising for chicks" or looking at big trucks. He delighted in the normal brotherly relationship of pestering and teasing " and deeply loved his brothers even though he hated to admit it. He touched more lives than we will ever know and his influence has made all of us want to be better people.
Brady left behind his Mom and Dad, Darrell and Lori Thompson; his brothers Jordan Thompson, 22, Luke Thompson, 15, and Austin Thompson, 13; and grandparents Lawrence and Ruth Thompson, and Ron and Janice Simons; and literally hundreds of loving family and friends. Very special thanks to Sharon Jones, Brady's nurse, and our good friends at the Daily Herald who helped share Brady's story, and all those who have been a part of his life and gave him joy.
Brady, we love you forever. You changed our lives more than we'll ever be able to express. We know that you are still happy and whole again. We miss you! Happy hunting!
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010, at the Lindon 5th Ward chapel, located at 610 West, 100 South, Lindon. A viewing will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 7 p.m. at the same location.
