Trent Thompson

June 2, 2000 — April 8, 2024

Trent Mitchell Thompson 23, of Clatskanie, OR, passed away peacefully in his sleep on
Monday, April 8th 2024. He was born on June 2, 2000 to Deborah Olson and Jace Thompson
(deceased) and raised by David Olson and Deborah.
Despite the challenges he faced as a young man with autism and Down syndrome while
also being nonverbal, Trent had a childlike spirit filled with love, joy, and courage. He was a
2018 graduate of the Life Skills Program at Clatskanie High School where his infectious
smile and gentle spirit touched the hearts of all who knew him. He brought light into the
lives of his family and friends, teaching them the true meaning of unconditional love and
acceptance. He had a deep love for music and would spend countless hours listening to his
favorite songs and dancing with boundless enthusiasm. He also enjoyed swimming,
watching his favorite shows, using his special swing in the backyard and going on boat
rides with his family which always ignited that wide contagious smile and laugh that we all
know and love. We will always remember his tight embraces as his innocence and love
showed no limitations.
He will be deeply missed by his devoted family: Deborah, Dave, Harley, Destanie, Chelsea,
Alysia, Kaitlyn and their respective families. The family would also like to recognize the
supportive caretakers and friends that helped orchestrate his abundant life. Trent was
survived by each person that was fortunate enough to cross paths with him. Nothing
brought Trent more joy than the prospect of a new friend to hug and share time with. The
family will always be thankful for the patience and love that was reflected back to him
throughout his bountiful life by these individuals.
Though our hearts are heavy with grief, we take comfort in knowing that Trent is now at
peace. Services for Trent will be a celebration of life format. It will be at 1pm on Monday
April 22 at The Gathering Place: 7845 River Rd NE, Keizer, OR 97303.
Trent may have left this world, but his legacy of love and joy will continue to inspire us all.
Losing him has been an unfathomable loss, but being blessed with his life was our greatest
joy. Rest in peace Trent. You will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
