Donald 'Dale' Thompson

October 6, 1955 ~ January 1, 2022 (age 66)


Mr. Donald "Dale" Thompson of Lacombe, AB passed away on Saturday, January 1, 2022 at the age of 66 years.

Dale was born in Bienfait, Saskatchewan. His passion for mechanics brought him to Edmonton where he went to NAIT to become a Red Seal Heavy Duty Mechanic.  Dale had a great love for the wilderness and his family. He spent many days and nights camping and quadding at Jackfish. When the family was there it was even better.

Being with his family brought Dale the most joy. Every time he spoke to his grandkids he said “Girls Are Trouble”, the girls always responded with. “Papas Are Trouble” this exchange will never be forgotten.  All 4 sons and 13 grandchildren were equally loved and Dale was proud of each of their unique abilities.  Dale will be loved and remembered forever by Alison, Ben, David (Amanda), Steven (Melissa), Sean (Erica), Cory and Heather, 13 amazing grandchildren and his best friend Wicket.  Dale’s family would like to thank everyone who enriched his life during his 66 years on the earth.

Dale, enjoy your “Five Golden Rings of Kielbasa ” in Heaven.
