Cory Dee Thompson

November 18, 1985 ~ April 11, 2022 (age 36)


Cory Dee Thompson, age 36 of Lebanon died on April 11, 2022 after a long battle with addiction. I want to speak the truth about my son's death. Silence would mean Cory's death was in vain, but if one person's life is saved by his story, I will continue to tell his story the rest of my life.
Cory had tremendous family support and love. He had 3 beautiful children that loved him, Cory lived with me, He regularly spent time with his family and children. He liked his job at Shenandoah Mills, worked out every day after work, and played golf. He had a good life. He was more than just his addiction. He was a son, a father, a brother, a grandson, a nephew and a good friend to so many. He didn't' want to die. He fought long & hard. This last time was the longest he had remained drug free. When the devil calls it only takes one time and it was the last for him.
If you have a loved one suffering from addition reach out to them. They are not all junkies, bums or low life's. A lot are just like Cory. They have a life, a family and they don't want to die either.
"It's not about catching them when they fall, rather, it's about reaching out a hand so they can get back up"
Cory was born and raised in Lebanon, TN. He loved golf, wrestling, basketball and his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers and Vanderbilt Football. But most of all he loved his children.
He was blessed with intelligence, a beautiful handsome face, wit and my sarcasm. He will forever be missed. Please pray for our family as our life will never be the same.
He was preceded in death by his father, Kerry Thompson, Grandfather Joe (Pa) Thompson and his Grandmother, Norma (Nanny) Cox.
He is survived by parents, Tom & Sharon Cox Gibson; his brother that always loved him unconditionally, Chris Thompson; children, Addilee K. Thompson, Owen D.
Thompson & Presley M. Thompson; Grandmother, Elizabeth (Mimi) Thompson; Uncle Steve (Bubba) Thompson; Aunt Julie (Mike) Lankford. Cory's Aunt & Uncle loved him as their own and were always there for him his entire life.
Cousins, Zack Lankford, Blake Lankford & Lynn Hamilton; Great Aunt Sandra Hamilton and his lifelong friend, Matt Strane.
