STOCKBRIDGE, VT — Christian Eric Thompson, 26, passed peacefully from this earth on July 17, 2019.

He was born April 18, 1993 at Gifford Medical Center in Randolph, VT, beloved son of Chris and Melissa Thompson. He grew up in the loving community of Stockbridge, VT, graduated from Stockbridge Central School and Rochester High School.

Christian was a lover of music, anything that moved fast, and animals, especially his beloved pets. His many friends and family remember him as a free, compassionate spirit, accepting, kind and outrageously funny. He loved his family and friends fiercely and had an enormous capacity for forgiveness. He will be sorely missed and always loved.

Christian is survived by his father, Chris Thompson of Barnard, VT; his mother, Melissa Thompson of Perkinsville, VT; his brother, Keanan Thompson, a senior cadet at Norwich University and member of the Vermont National Guard; grandparents, Charlene Davis and Beverly and Lee Thompson all of Rutland, VT; many aunts, uncles, cousins and his dog, Jazz. He was predeceased by his grandfather, John Henry Davis.

Memorial calling hours will be held on Monday, July 22, 2019 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Boardway & Cilley Funeral Home, 300 VT RT 110, Chelsea, VT. A private burial will be held at a later date in the Maplewood Cemetery in Stockbridge, VT. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Upper Valley Humane Society, 300 Old Route 10, Enfield, VT 03748. A private message of sympathy for the family can be shared at
