Donald Edwin Thompson
Services for Donald Edwin Thompson, 68, of Ada will be at 10 a.m. Monday at the Criswell Funeral Chapel. Pastor David Warden of St. Paul Indian Methodist Church in Talihina will officiate.
Mr. Thompson died Monday, Sept. 9, 2019, at an Oklahoma City hospital.
He was born Sept. 26, 1950, in Talihina to Turner Lee Thompson Sr. and Ferris Armstrong Thompson.
Donald was a dedicated, hard worker over the years ... from managing an old hotel for retired men to working in chicken plants and construction. He was a CNA at the old Valley View Hospital and retired from Walmart as the door greater/security guard.
Donald did three tours in the U.S. Army in Korea, Vietnam and Germany.
He was a local rancher who raised race-bred horses.
Donald loved sports, especially football. He played on a high school state champion team and loved OU and the Dallas Cowboys. Donald was often laid back and shy, but he had quite a sense of humor too. But as a friend, he was honest, loyal and helpful in any way he could be.
Survivors include his significant other, Sandra Mantooth, of the home; three daughters, Marissa Guerrero and Maranda Kirkes of Ada and Krisanne Thompson of Louisiana; and grandchildren Agustin Guerrero Jr., Elisia Thompson and Joni Thompson of Ada, Hunter Lee Brown and Teeaira Thompson of Louisiana.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Betty Baken; two brothers, Bobby Thompson and Turner Lee Thompson Jr.; a grandson, Roman Lee Kirkes; and a son-in-law, Nathan Kirkes.
