In loving memory of Craig William Thompson, also affectionately known as J.R.

January 21, 1981– November 16, 2021


Craig was predeceased by his parents Virginia and William Thompson, his maternal grandparents Verna and George Wells, and paternal grandparents Ruth Thompson and Willard Spence, his nephew Cassias Stevenson, his uncles Keith, Nick, Lawrence, Vernon, and Eugene and his best friend and cousin Kevin Tanner.


Craig will be missed by his aunties: Marilyn Tanner (Eddy), Kathy Chief (Vernon) and Margaret Wells; his uncles: Lloyd Wells (Georgia), and Richard Grisdale (Evelyn), and his former spouse Jessica. He will also be lovingly remembered by his siblings: Francis Stevenson, Robert Thompson, and their families, and by his cousins Lance, Greg, Kyle, Dana, Melanie, Alex, Audrey, Leah, Brandy, Rachel, Courtney, Chasity, Emory, Richard Jr., Crystal, Lawrence, Nancy, Virgil, Elliot, Joshua, Charlene, Olivia, Tracy and Anita.


Craig valued and appreciated his friends and enjoyed Science Fiction, playing video games, and watching football. He was a gentle giant with a big heart, who loved making people laugh. Craig was lonesome for his parents. He attended church faithfully and even when he couldn’t attend in person, he watched services online. Those who knew and loved him will miss Craig’s sense of humour and laughter.


A celebration of Craig’s life will be held at Believer’s Church-465 Alexander Ave. on Nov. 27 at 1:00 PM. Proof of vaccination will be required to attend. Honorary pallbearers are all Craig’s first cousins and his best buddies Chad McMullan and Rod Moir.
