Mr. Thompkins was born January 12, 1961 in Dublin to Mrs. Hattie Mae Mitchell Thompkins and the late Rev. Layron Thompkins. He entered eternal rest on July 7, 2019. Mr. Thompkins was a member of Pine Level Baptist Church. He was educated in the Laurens County School System.
He previously worked for the Laurens School System as a custodian and at Tanner Tire Center in East Dublin. His passion was working on old cars and trucks. After he was injury and limited in what he could do, he still continued to work on cars in a limited capacity. Many would seek his opinion and advice about their cars. He enjoyed life and never met a stranger. If he saw anyone broke down side the road in a vehicle, he would stop and assist the person no matter who it was. It was his passion! He also loved sweets and would always say, “I need some sweets; I need to satisfy my sweet tooth.”
He was preceded in death by his wife, Janet Floyd; his father; his grandparents, Deacon Henry Mitchell and Carrie Spivey Mitchell; brother, Clarence Henry Thompkins; aunt, Viola Mitchell Coney; and uncle, Joseph Bill Mitchell.
