August 18, 1998 — January 1, 2021
Born August 18, 1998, in Vernon, BC, Austin passed away suddenly on January 1, 2021, at the age of 22. He leaves to mourn his parents, Brett and Tashia Thompson; his sisters, Brooke and Ember; his brothers, Dallas and Cyrus; and his grandparents—Ron, Lin & Gord, and Marg & Lorne—along with extended family and many, many friends. We will all carry the memory of this quiet but proud, strong-willed and sarcastic, cocky yet lovable guy who had his own unique sense of humour.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to a local organization that helps bring awareness to the dangers of fentanyl to prevent the senseless loss of life due to overdoses. In Kelowna, consider Moms Stop the Harm at www.momsstoptheharm.com or Living Positive Resource Centre at lprc.ca/harm-reduction.
A Funeral Service will be held to honour Austin. Due to the current pandemic restrictions, it will be a private event. However, the family invites all who wish to pay their respects to join by Livestream on Thursday, January 14, 2021, at 1:00 pm. A recording will be made available to view shortly thereafter. (below)
