Obituary of Brandon Lee Thompson

Brandon Lee Thompson, age 40, of Ansonia, died September 17, 2020 at Griffin Hospital following a sudden illness. Born in Greenville, TX on July 30, 1980, he was the son of Rickie and Carrie Hausenfluck Thompson. Brandon was raised in Norwich, CT and worked as a general construction contractor until his recent employment with the Connecticut Laborer’s Union.  He was an extremely hard worker all of his life and his primary goal was to take care of his two cherished sons, Troy D. Thompson and Tyler J. Thompson, whom he loved immeasurably. Brandon lit up a room with his infectious laugh and his sweet smile; he was great for a bear hug!  He will be long remembered as an only son, a beloved brother and a devoted father.
