George Thompson Diamond shared the news of his death on their Instagram page. "It is with great sadness we post about our founder and long-time owner George Thompson's passing," the post read. He will be greatly missed by all of us here at the George Thompson Diamond Company. The family has asked in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Oxnard Noontimers Foundation."

Thompson's obituary states that he enjoyed hearing his clients' stories and being a part of their celebration as the founder of George Thompson Diamond Company — which he founded in 1977. He eventually founded a jewelry manufacturing company with his wife, Toi, in Bangkok, Thailand. 

Thompson retired in September 2021 and was proud to see the second generation take over the store.
