Michael J. Thompson, age 57, of Escanaba, passed away on Friday, February 10, 2023 at U.P. Health Systems Hospital in Marquette, MI.
Michael was born on January 9, 1966, in Honolulu, Hawaii, the son of Joseph and Martha (Moran) Thompson. Shortly after he was born, they relocated to Colorado Springs, CO, where Mike was raised. After moving to Michigan, Mike was united in marriage to the former Beverly Bastian and together they shared many wonderful years of memories.

He will be missed by so many.

Michael had a personality that shined so bright. His way of approaching people and his conversation, had a way of brightening up so many people. I know I am very happy to have met him and known him. We will all see him again, when it’s our turn to pass. Until then, I know he would want us to go on and enjoy and have fun, as though he is still with us (which he is, in spirit).

Micheal was a sincere guy loved talking to people. He loved everyone that he came in contact with. He loved his sugar with his coffee. He loved his wife and treated her like a queen.He always called her everyday and say I love you. Never a day went by where when he went to work and called his wife.He loved talking to everyone. His wife Beverly truly loved him like a King!!! They both are Christian people.
Truly believe in God. He put them together. To meet one another. It was a Blessing that they found each other. Always did everything together, went for rides to Church and also took his mom for rides. He would also do the washing together with his wife
What a Blessing they Both are!!
