Lance Thompson

May 16, 1996 — October 24, 2020

Lance Thompson our “Bubba” has made his way home to heaven. He left us all with a hole in our heart that will never be filled. We only find comfort during these trying times knowing that Lance is making his way around heaven putting smiles everywhere he goes like he did here on earth.

Lance was born May 16, 1996 and left us on October 24,2020. During his 24 years with us here he always brought a smile to everyone he met, and he never met a stranger. Lance loved spending time with loved ones at the river. Lance also loved playing high school football for the Indians and even got to play a little college ball with his best friend Trae Harrington.  After College Lance joined the Marines which he loved very much. He made impressions on many of his Marine brothers that will never be forgotten.

When Lance left us, he left behind many friends and loved ones, his Daddy & Moma Rodney & Tina Thompson; his Mom and Step Dad Rebecka and Ronnie Gallups; his siblings, Heather Hunter, Ethan (Hodgie) Hunter, Kalee (Thompson) Gould along with her Husband Daniel Gould, and Kaden Gallups; his nephews, Brantley & Gavin Graham; Lances’ grandparents, Papa (Dwight Thompson), Papaw  & Gege (John and Debbie Downs) and his Nana (Carrie Proctor); his Aunts and Uncles, Brain & Mickey Thompson, Tift & Shirley Thompson, and Travis & Brandy Thompson, along with many more loved ones. Lance was loved by many and enjoyed bringing happiness to others. Lance will truly be missed, and we welcome all to come and celebrate Lance’s life on Thursday evening, October 29 between 5 & 8pm at Shepard-Roberson Funeral home in Folkston, Georgia and at Boones Creek Cemetery on Friday morning, October 30 at 11am.
