January 12, 1962 ~ October 5, 2021 (age 59)


Darrell M Thomson, 59, passed away at home on October 5, 2021 after a long battle of Asbestosis and heart problems. Darrell enjoyed hunting and fishing while growing up and did so into later years until his health made it hard for him to do it.

Darrell was born January 12, 1962 in Libby MT to Robert D. (Dale) Thomson and Eva A. Thomson (Vatland).

Darrell graduated from Libby Senior High in 1980, and enlisted in the US Navy in November of 1981. He was stationed in Port Hueneme, CA in the “SeaBees” construction battalion as a builder. Darrell served tours in Sicily and Guam on several construction projects before being honorably discharged in November of 1986 and was in the Navy Reserve until 1987. He later went to North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene, ID training in the Automotive Mechanics Program and after completion worked for several different dealerships over a span of several years. He married Lauri Bradshaw and adopted 2 children, Ronnie and Scott. He later divorced and continued to live in Kalispell where he became a CNA and worked in a couple nursing homes caring for the elderly.  Darrell moved back to Libby when his health prohibited him from continuing that line of work.

Darrell is survived by his brother Robert (Bob) Thomson Post Falls ID; sons Ronnie Parris and Scott Thomson of Kalispell, MT; Uncle and Aunt Collin and Connie Thomson of Libby; Aunt Gayla Benefield of Libby; and numerous cousins.
