Former Nevada Assemblyman John Moore posted about Thompson’s passing on Facebook.

“I served with Tyrone in the legislature and on a few committees, we sat next to each other on the Assembly floor,” Moore wrote. “I would often ask Tyrone for advice on different issues, I could always count on getting an honest answer from him. Assemblyman Thompson was the type of person that always had a smile and a kind word no matter what the situation was.”

“We are deeply saddened by Assemblyman Thompson’s sudden passing,” Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson (D) said. “He was well respected by his colleagues in the Legislature for his dedication and leadership. His warm smile and larger-than-life presence will truly be missed in our Assembly chamber. We ask that you respect the privacy of his family at this difficult time.”
