Mark Lee Thompson
April 3, 1955 – February 3, 2019
Mark L Thompson began his journey in Andrew Texas on April 3, 1955. His stories and virtues are survived by his beautiful wife Annalou Thompson, his two children; Dallas and Syasya, and his feline companion speckles. To say Mark lived life to the fullest is an absolute understatement. No challenge stood taller than he, life grew weary when he set forth to tackle anything put before him. His biggest challenge, which created the cultured father and husband we now know, was pursuing new life in Asia. He loved the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia and all the beauty the strange lands of Southeast Asia had to offer. His travels filled him with stories almost as grand as his personality. Those that held mark close knew of his insistent need for the dramatic. Between his booming voice and imposing stature, he commanded the presence of any room he entered earning him the name Rambo throughout the islands he conquered. However, he was always quick to diffuse any tension with his peculiar, yet oddly welcoming jokes only Mark could fathom up. It was exactly this that led him to develop the remarkable gift of cultivating genuine friendships anywhere he went. After bringing into the world another Thompson, his son Dallas, and many years he decided to return to the states and settle his family doing what he loved most; building projects better than anyone else. As soon as things settled life threw him another magnificent surprise. The blessing that is his “little chicken leg” Syasya was brought into his loving life. Mark had a knack for creating perfection. His children, his projects, but most of all his Bar-B-Que. It may seem odd to mention his cooking, but if it needs to be explained you genuinely missed food that only comes around once every few lifetimes. You could taste the love and passion he put into it, and this love and passion was put forth in everything he embodied. It shined brightest during his fight with cancer. He spent years fighting relentlessly standing stalwart with his family and loved ones beside him, because that’s what Thompsons do, they sow the seeds of love and guard them until they can’t. Everyone knew the pain he awoke each day too, but watching him you would never know because you were too busy trying to keep up. He wasn’t just a fighter he was a king in a world that no longer had thrones, thankfully, the lives of those he touched gave him a throne of love he now rests upon as he guards over those that cherish his memory and life. You begun a legacy, and with it your love will always be remembered and passed. We love you Mark.

My husband is my knight and shining armor and will always be. He loved me unconditionally and had changed my life for the better. He thought I'm an angel sent from above for him but I thought otherwise. He may looked rough and intimidating in the outside but deep inside he's a teddy bear. He even cried everytime he watched the movie, ”Meet Joe Black”. He has a heart of gold. He had helped so many people to a point that he has nothing left for himself. He had changed so many lives for the better.
My husband is the strongest person I have ever known in my life. Nothing scared him. He was knocked down so many times but always came back up. That is why, up to this day I could not believe he's gone for a lifetime. I feel like I lost the other part of me. I feel incomplete. But I just have to go through life and trust GOD’s plan.
”I will miss everything about you my love. I hope you're happy and at peace wherever you are now. I will cherished our memories forever. You're always be a part of me. You’re always be my hero. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Till we meet again babe-o.😘 - your cupcake”.
