Louisville, KY

Lawrence E. “Larry” Thompson, age 68, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 2nd, 2024. He was born in Louisville, the son of Richardson “Moe” and Mary Renee “Nenee” Thompson. After graduating from Butler High School, Larry became a self-taught master carpenter. He had a loyal, dedicated customer base that received his best on every project, with his meticulous eye for detail. Finding someone more hardworking than Larry would be a difficult feat. If he wasn’t building, he enjoyed many hobbies and interests. Larry could talk to anyone about cars, fishing, hummingbirds and the Cards. Many weekends were spent watching football, although Larry preferred it when his teams were winning by at least 20! One of Larry’s greatest prides in life was his “son of all sons” (as Larry called him), John. He and John worked on countless projects over the years, including fully renovating their house together. Larry couldn’t have been prouder than seeing John graduate from Chicago Booth with his MBA. In 2009, Larry was blessed to meet Donna at Southeast Christian Church. Larry and Donna experienced many adventures in love together over the last 15 years, enjoying the beaches of Cancun, skydiving in Vegas and whitewater rafting in Gatlinburg. Later in life, Larry relished in being a Papaw and spending time with his beloved grandchildren. To know Larry was to love Larry. He was a fiercely loyal friend and would be there in a minute if anyone he cared for needed anything at all. Never letting his back pain get in the way of spending time with his grandchildren, he often could be seen crawling on the floor, playing animal rescue with his granddaughter or helping his grandson with his Transformers. When John needed help on a project, he was just a quick phone call away with a table saw or drill bit. Larry was a friend, son, husband, father, and Papaw. Larry was preceded in death by his parents; and his brothers, Michael Thompson and Jeff Thompson, and his first wife, Linda Thompson (Ilari). Left to cherish his memory are wife, Donna Thompson (Brumley); son, John Thompson (Caitlin); sisters, Donna Edelen (Brent) and Amy Thompson (Chip Summers); brother, Ritchie Thompson; sister-in-law, Brenda Thompson (Michael); grandchildren, Collins and Ace Thompson (John); stepson, Brock Davis; and a number of nephews and nieces. Visitation will be 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm on Wednesday, March 6th, at Highlands Funeral Home, 3331 Taylorsville Road. His funeral service will be held at Highlands at 6:00 pm that evening, following the visitation. Donations in his name may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and The Healing Place in Louisville.
