Cyril Peter Thompson

1931 ~ 2012

Cyril Peter Thompson, “Pete”, returned home to his Father in Heaven on November 14, 2012.  He was born May 26, 1931 to Franklin Lorenzo and Elizabeth Emma Beck Thompson.

He married his “girl”, Doris Rowley, on March 16, 1951.  Together they raised seven children, James (Jan), Allan (Valerie), Linda (David), Lynn Ann, Michael (Chris), Steven (Laura) and Jean (Dan).  He has 24 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.  His wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren survive him.  He has 1 brother and 5 sisters; one sister LaRaine Vaught (Randy) is still living.

He graduated from Springville High School in 1949.  He earned a bachelor’s degree from BYU.  He served in the National Guard and US Army for 14 years.  He retired after working for a total of 43 years at Ironton, US Steel and LaRoche Industries.

He was a High Priest of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints.  He served as a temple worker and in many church callings, including scouting, quorum leadership and clerical positions.

He enjoyed the outdoors, especially time spent with family camping, hiking, fishing, and hunting.  He shared his enthusiasm for sports through coaching and construction and preparation of playing fields.  He could always be found supporting his family at their various events. He was a quiet example of service who was always concerned about others.   We love you, Dad.  Thank you for everything.

Friends and family are invited to attend a viewing at the Wheeler Mortuary, 82 W 400 N, Mapleton, Utah on November 16 from 6 to 8 PM.    A viewing will also be held on November 17 at the Mapleton 17th Ward chapel, 1068 S 1600 W Mapleton, from 12:45 PM to 1:45 PM, followed by the funeral services that will begin at 2 PM.  Interment will be at the Springville Evergreen Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Perpetual Education Fund of the LDS Church.

    Allan, I read about the passing of your father on the site for our class. I was indeed sorry to hear about it. He certainly had a long and I’m sure happy and fulfilling life. But, even knowing this does not take away the pain of the loss. May the Lord bless you and your family with peace and happy memories. Elyse

    Dear family, I was so sorry to read about Pete’s passing, Everyone knows he was a great guy, I was the Supply Sgt. in the 116th when we were called on active duty, He was a very good CO.

    Dear Thompson Family,
    We are in Denver as I recover from another surgery- when we heard of the passing of your husband and father. We will always remember Cyril at the boys baseball games, His committment and love of his children and grandchildren was so apparent. I especially will remember his tender care and concern for his sweet wife while we were in the 4th ward together. Our thoughts and prayers are with you! Love, Scot and Edie Swan
