Norman "Earl" Thompson

September 11, 1953 — February 29, 2024

Norman “Earl” Thompson was born on September 11, 1953, in Dallas, Texas to parents Elbis Aaron and Zelma Olivia (Cotten) Thompson. 

 Norman worked for Certain Teed after high school and then for TX DOT. He retired from TX Dot in 2009 but had many jobs on the side. Hauling dirt, building everyone’s house, digging tanks, bailing hay, and anything that involved dirt work. Norman loved life, his family and his friends and many other aunts and uncles that he loved visiting with and telling stories. He would sit up all night with his aunts on the Thompson side talking. He loved to play pool in his spare time and was very good at it. 

Those left to carry on his memory include children, Christy and husband, Scott Lamb of Kemp, Texas, and Tracy and wife Rachel Thompson of Kemp, Texas. Grandchildren, Taylor Waters of Tool, Texas, Kelsey and Cody Calvin of Kemp, Texas, Madison Thompson and friend Austin Scott of Payne Springs, Texas, and Robert Thompson and friend Haylee Nelson of Kemp, Texas. Great grandchildren Kenna Kay Calvin of Kemp and Landon and Anslee Scott of Payne Springs, Texas; siblings Loraine Leach of Canton, Texas, Joan Jones Weatherly of Fruitville, Texas, Edna and husband Ray Duncan of Mabank, Texas, Dicky Reed of Kemp, Texas, Terry and wife Patty Reed of Kemp, Texas, and Diane and husband John Bookman of Kemp, Texas. Mother-in-law Betty Starek of Kemp, Texas, brother-in-sister-in-law Dennis and Debbie Starek of Kemp, Texas, Larry and Mary Starek of Kemp, Texas, Jamie and Lisa Starek of Kemp, Texas, and Jerry Starek of Kemp, Texas; and one great grandchild on the way. 

  

Norman is preceded in death by his wife, Linda Kay Starek Thompson, Parent E.A. “Buddy” and Zelma Thompson; foster parents Billy and Mildred Reed; siblings, Joyce Mcmanus and Ronald Reed; father-in-law Jerry Starek; brother-in-law Jim Leach and Leon McManus; and Johnny Thompson, a very special Uncle.
