Craig Arthur Thompson was born on June 9th, 1956 to the late Paul and Constance Thompson of Hingham, Mass. He passed away peacefully in his Scituate home on February 22nd, 2023. He is survived by his wife Lauri Byer, twin brother Bruce Thompson and his wife Maureen Thompson, sister Sue Rego and her husband Peter Rego, children Alex and Abby Thompson and her fiancé Justin Ogilvie. He is also survived by niece and nephews, Brian, Connor and Kathryn, stepdaughter Lauryn and her husband Darren Leverenz, their daughters Riley and Harlow, and stepson Tyler and partner Fran.
After graduating from Hingham High School in 1975 and Curry College in 1979, he worked in the insurance industry for 40-plus years – committing himself to providing exceptional service and care to a wide client base.
Craig was an active parishioner at the United Church of Christ in Norwell, Mass, participating in the outreach committee and volunteering for community service efforts.
Craig loved his two labradoodles Jackson and Theo, building his substantial and eclectic music library, traveling the world with his beloved wife, traversing the U.S. with his children, and constantly learning new things. He participated in the 2012 PanMass Challenge fundraiser and regularly rode his trusty bicycle 100+ miles on Sunday afternoons. An adventurer at heart, Craig loved hiking, scuba, flying single engine planes, snowshoeing, skiing, and skydiving. However, he liked few things more than Lauri’s salmon, a strong cup of black coffee, and afternoons on his deck – overlooking Lawson Common in his dream home.
Funeral services will be private. For those who wish to commemorate Craig’s life, donations can be made to The Scituate Animal Shelter in lieu of flowers. For online condolences visit www.downingchapel.com
