Todd Thompson, 60

Todd Thompson, 60, of Hayfield, MN peacefully passed away with his kids by his side on Thursday, July 29, 2021, at Mayo Clinic  Hospital Methodist Campus in Rochester, MN. Todd was born on June 15th 1961 in Austin, MN to Arthur and Bernice (Trom) Thompson. Todd graduated from Hayfield High School in 1979.

In 1983, Todd did what he loved doing, by taking over the family farm. Not only was farming his passion, he also enjoyed riding his Harley, playing pool, softball, and spending time with his family and friends. His pride and joy was his grandson, Brantley, who shared his passion for go-go, aka Green Tractors, and long 4 wheeler rides, checking over the crops.

Todd is survived by his children, Nichole, Colton (Christa Decker) and Connor Thompson; grandchildren, Hannah, Kovin, and Brantley; siblings, Patsy (Richard) Wiegman, Rita (Denis) Tufte; brother-in-law, Russell LaVan; and nieces and nephews.
