Mr. Thompson died May 14, 2017, in Temple. He was born Aug. 12, 1939, in Robstown to Dan and Hazel Thompson.
Jim practiced law in Coryell, Bell and Lampasas counties for over 40 years after being assistant district attorney in Nueces County for a number of years. He served in many capacities in Copperas Cove and Coryell County including city attorney.
He represented several generations of families during his time of practice. He genuinely enjoyed helping people in their time of need. Even though Jim was a great attorney, his real passion was his family. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, swimming and most anything outdoors.
