Bryan and I were great friends. Loved going to his house with his wonderful family and watching wimbledon on tv. We played tennis together as a pair, he was the one that kept us going when we were down, he had the courage in him that drove me to keep on going when we were losing. After high school we all grew up and led our separate lives but he was always in my heart. One of my best friends, he will truly be missed.

Life is so short. I read a post last week on the BPD FB page and I was like this cant be my neighbor. Then a friend that bowled here in Baytown called me last night to ask did I know he passed. This saddened me to hear this.
She often see him when she would pick me up. After moving into the Lakes at Madera apartments we met. We were upstairs and at the time my kids were 8 and 9 years old. I would often talk with Mr. Thompson and let him know if it was too much noise, please let me know. He told me oh no I don't hear anything. He said he had the fans going when he slept. I know he was being modest. He and I would talk often, and quickly realized we were always neighbors. He was from Nederland and I was from Port Arthur. He had told me he was looking for a home, and had just moved maybe early September. Sending prayers and condolences to the Taylor and Teri and the entire family.

I remember when Bryan's Aunt Ann brought his cousins Molly, Pat and me to see him at Mid Jefferson Hospital after he was born. We were not allowed in the hospital so we went to the window were Judy's room was located. Judy held Bryan in her arms with a big smile on her face. I saw him a few times over the years. I remember when he was going to Lamar University and he was working at a ladies shoe store in Central Mall. Bryan remained close to his Mother all his life. He called her every day. He was a wonderful son, friend, father and outstanding policeman. He was a man of integrity and loyalty. Rest in peace Bryan.

Where do I begin ! Bryan was one my best friends growing up. I remember meeting him on the playground at Helena park in first grade. We were pretty much inseparable. There are countless fond memories of Bryan , with about 99% of them always putting a smile on my face . He was critical in helping me keep my sanity when I was in dental school after college and he had begun his law enforcement career. He would come to my apartment and make me go eat at Panchos Mexican food restaurant at least 3 times a week. I remember like it was yesterday when he came to my apartment and told me he was going to be a father. He was so excited. Then even doubly excited when he found out they were twins in the way. !! Possibly a little panick , but he was so very happy. Bryan and I hadn’t spoken much for the last several years , which now I really am regretting I didn’t just drive to Baytown and kidnap him and make him go eat at Panchos with me ! If there are any open anymore
. My advice is don’t wait to reach out to someone that meant so much to you , and tell them you love them. There might never be another chance. I will now get peace knowing that Bryan is reunited with other classmates that have passed , along with my brother in law , Jeff , also John Sumrall and Murphy Thompson ( who had a locker right above Bryan’s in high school. ) you will be greatly missed my friend. Until we meet again

Your buddy

I went to school with Bryan for 12 years. I have many fond memories of him throughout. He was a fine boy and an even better man. Bryan was always a pleasure to be around.
I did not see Bryan again after we graduated and scattered into the world to become what we would all be... but I was reminded of him when I drove around Nederland and our old neighborhood. Passing Joe Bass’s house on 34th and laughing to myself about Bryan crashing Joe’s Honda trail 70 mini bike after a “ stunning “ ramp jump. We were probably 13 or 14 I guess - and Bryan gets up after the crash and was like “ hey - did you see how much air I caught?”....
I know anyone that met him - loved him. A true kind and genuine person. Bryan - you will be missed!

I have so many fond memories of Bryan, I don't know where to start. Bryan was my high school sweetheart. I had such a wonderful senior year, all thanks to Bryan. I don't recall ANYONE ever having a bad word to say about him. Well, except his little sister Jamie, who was forever saying "I hate you", because he would rat her out on one thing or another. I knew that she was so proud of her big brother, and truly loved him. That was true sibling rivalry. I am so blessed to have known and loved Bryan. This Earth is a little less safer without Detective Bryan Terence Thompson. Rest in Peace my friend!! My love and prayers go out to all of the Thompson family.

What a Guy! I will remember our many years at the Police Department and the evenings competing at the bowling alley. I considered Bryan a true friend and he will be greatly missed.
