Jody Brian Thompson, age 62, passed away December 4, 2022 after battling a lengthy illness, at the home of his brother and sister in law surrounded by family.

Jody was born in Guthrie Center, Iowa on July 22, 1960 to Lyle E. and Ellen L. (Wheeldon) Thompson. Jody was known by many as Jerry and he never knew a stranger.
