Cyril Lee Thompson III was born on August 23, 1991, in Fort Myers, Florida to parents Cyril Lee Thompson, Jr. and Carla Marie (Skarsten) Thompson. He moved with his family back to the Fosston area as an infant. He attended Fosston Public Schools, graduating from Fosston High School in 2010. After high school, he attended the White Earth Tribal College in Mahnomen for a year.
Cyril loved hunting, fishing, tatoo art, music, video games, and football (he especially liked teasing his mom, Carla, about the Vikings). He shot his first deer the last deer season; a feat that he was very proud of. He also enjoyed watching documentary and biography programs on tv. Most of all, Cyril enjoyed spending time with his family. He will be dearly missed.
