Robert “Scott” Thomson – Obituary

Robert “Scott” Thomson, 58, of Weiser, Idaho, passed away at home July 25, 2023, surrounded by his family.  He was diagnosed in May with bile duct cancer and has fought a fast, hard battle since that time.

Scott was born September 19, 1964, in Alturas, California to Robert Thomson and Pat Thompson.  When he was three years old, the family moved to Palm Springs.  He loved exploring the desert, chasing lizards and snakes.  In seventh grade, Scott started boxing under the name “Mighty Mouse”.  He was a south paw boxer, which often gave him an advantage over his opponents, only losing one fight in his career, earning the “Golden Gloves” title.  During the summers, he loved spending time at Helen “GG” and Dale “grampy” Thompson’s farm, doing farmwork, helping with the animals, playing with his cousins, hunting, fishing, and trail rides.  In ninth grade, he moved to Germany with his Aunt Diane and Uncle Roger Krahn for one year.  While in Germany, he made a lot of memories with his cousin, Troy.  When Scott was a sophomore in high school, he moved to Weiser with his mom and siblings, where he graduated in 1982.

He went directly from high school to the Navy at the age of 17.  During his four years in the Navy, he was stationed in the Mojave Desert, working on missile guidance systems as an electronics specialist.

After serving his time in the Navy, Scott had some amazing adventures in Alaska, living off the land with his brother, Guy (Dale), and their dogs.  He returned to Idaho, and married Brandy Ryle.  They had three children together, Bernadette, Kayelee, and Brandan.  They lived in Nevada, Oregon, and Idaho throughout their marriage.  While in Oregon, he owned and operated his own commercial fishing boat, “The Tronjheim”.

Scott moved back to Weiser in 2011, where he started working at Tomlinson and Associates as a maintenance technician.  This is where he met and fell in love with Trisha Bell, and they were married July 7, 2017.  They enjoyed fishing, hunting, traveling, camping, kayaking, off-roading, and just exploring everywhere together.  Scott was a major foodie and loved finding recipes to cook, ways to use his smoker, and sharing his creations with family.  He loved to tell everyone “It’s not that hot, try it!”, and then laugh hysterically while you would be running for water, because it WAS that hot.  He was quite the joker, always laughing and having a good time with family every chance he got.

In 2015, Scott started driving the school bus for Weiser School District.  He loved the kids on his route and would remember the names of every child, including those from the many extracurricular trips for which he drove.  He loved greeting the kids with a high five, and loved the pictures and trinkets they would bring him.  If Scott ran into one of his students around town, he would always take the time to say hi.  He would sign up to drive the bus for away games for the Weiser Wolverine sports teams, and he would often be requested by teams to drive them to games.

He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and the entire community of Weiser.  Scott is survived by his wife Trisha of Weiser; children Bernadette (David) Zamora, Kayelee, and Brandon of Nevada; grandson DJ Zamora; mother Pat Thompson of Weiser; father Robert (Vivian) Thomson of Florence, OR; sister Sandra (Dean) Paler of Meridian, ID; Shad (Mubin) Thomson of Florence, OR; Guy (Kilee) Thomson of Weiser; nieces Shannon (Matt) Eastin of Arizona and Jasmine (Nick) McCain of Oregon; nephews Colton (Jessica) Thomson of Weiser, Cody Thomson of Oregon, and KC (Becca) Thomson of Weiser; Uncle Don Thompson of Weiser; Aunt Diane Krahn of Weiser; and a multitude of cousins, great-nieces and nephews; and his adoring fur babies Rocket and Sissy.

At a future date, his family and friends will gather to celebrate his life and share memories together.  Trisha would like to thank the nurses at St. Luke’s Hospice for their loving care of Scott in his last few days.
