Kirtus LeRoy Thompson

May 1, 1992May 18, 2019

Kirtus LeRoy Thompson passed away May 18, 2019. He was 27 years old, born on May 1, 1992. He was devoted to his family, friends and his work at Two Men and a Truck of Chattanooga, where he had been promoted to a Fleet Manager. He was not the kind of person to call in sick. When duty called, he was there. He was loved by his family and a familiar sight at family events. Kirtus loved children and looked forward to becoming a father to children with the woman he loved. When a family member was in need, he would be first on the scene. Kirtus had the enviable habit of being early in all things. He was seldom known to be late, no matter the occasion. Quiet and introspective, Kirtus was not one to jabber mindlessly but had a sense of humor. Kirtus was fun loving and enjoyed making friends and family laugh. When a friend was in need, Kirtus was there to provide support. His dedicated loyalty to his friends sometimes lead to his own pitfalls. He was Baptized in the Collgedale Seventh Day Adventist Church in 2013 and attended schools in Hixson Collegedale and Portland, TN. Kirtus is survived by the Thompson family, including his mother Tiffany Sawyer and her husband H.K., his sister Ashley Sutton and her husband Billy nephews Landon and Benjamin, grandparents Dick and Joan Thompson, Aunt Shellie Thompson, cousins Cody, Taylor, Mattie, Aunt Brandee Gill and her husband Beto, cousins Mercedes and Logan, and his Uncle Marc Thompson and his wife Sharon and his cousins Caleb and Garrett.
