Brandon David Thompson

August 9, 1990 ~ June 13, 2021 (age 30)


HYDE PARK/HARDWICK - Brandon David Thompson, born August 9, 1990 to Gretchen Jarvis and David Thompson died on June 13, 2021.

Brandon graduated with honors from Lamoille Union High School in 2008. He attended SUNY Canton College (for a hot minute) majoring in mechanical engineering. He decided college life was not for him and was eager to dive into the work world. 

Through working with his father, Brandon found a love for the steel industry. At one point he drove cross country (an experience he talked about often) to South Dakota and worked for Building Construction. Brandon returned, found his place, and settled into a job at Contractor Crane Service (CCS) in Morrisville, Vermont where he worked for the last nine years. Brandon was the one they wanted on their job, as he was quick-witted, and with his ability to sleep anywhere, he made a great co-pilot.

Brandon loved anything with speed; cars, snow machines, dirt bikes, and motorcycles. Brandon would come out with something to make you laugh when you least expected it. If there was a dog around, they were sure to find Brandon. He had a love for cherry pie and gas station food, specifically chicken.

Losing his father in 2018 was a heartbreak that never healed. 

Brandon is survived by his mother Gretchen Jarvis of Hyde Park, sister Taylor Judkins and partner Cam Lawson, sister Dailyn Judkins, and brother Ian Judkins, his Step father Brian Judkins, grandparents Terry and Deanna Judkins all of Hyde Park as well as his Grandmother Marilyn Jarvis of Connecticut and Uncle Joel Jarvis of South Hero Vermont. Everyone loved Brandon, there are too many to list.

A Celebration of Brandon’s life will be on Friday, June 25, 2021 at the Morrisville VFW from 4-8pm.
