Wanda, Susan, Billy, Whitney & Family, Our deepest condolences for your loss. Bubba as we knew him was one of my best friends. I'm sorry we lost contact through the years. But the memories we shared will last forever.
John and Wanda have been very close friends for years. Through the ups and downs we always loved each other. John was the sweetest and caring person and I know what a caring and loving father and husband he was thru the rough times and the great times. I will miss him and pray for Wanda and family to get thru this horrible time. Love and prayers to all the Thompson family.

Many would say that John was a simple, caring and entertaining man. There wasn’t anyone he didn’t meet that didn’t fall in love with him. He loved telling old stories of family and friends that would have you laughing so hard you cry. He was huge NASCAR fan until this day. He loved spending his traditional Daytona trips with his family.
In addition to his parents John was preceded in death by his sister, Debra Simmons.
John leaves behind his high school sweetheart of 47 years Wanda Thompson of Yulee; his children, Heather (Chuck) Sapp and Johnny Thompson; grandchildren, Kevin (Chelsey) Sapp, Jonathan (Shelby) Sapp, Brianna Sapp, Abbigail Sapp, Kyleigh Thompson; great grandchildren, Braelynn Sapp, Leland Sapp and Stetson Sapp all of Yulee, FL.

A celebration of life will be celebrated at a later date.
