David S. Irvin’s Positively Parker County The Thompsons Bert Thompson, Bridget, Caroline and Clayton M ike’s Westside Rental president Bert Thompson and his wife Bridget are happy to call Weatherford home. In 2014, he bought the business and became pres- ident after tracking sales from their original store in Graham. He knew he had to open a second location in Weatherford after the customer was willing to drive from Weatherford to Graham, but not to Fort Worth, to pick up a karaoke machine. Both children, Caroline and Clayton, attend Trinity Christian School. Clayton is in pre-K and Caroline is in 5 th grade. For Bert, family is the most important thing in his life. Between their Graham location and the new Weatherford location, he’s extremely busy. When he’s not at work he loves to spend time with his kids, from soccer tourna- ments to hanging out on the weekends. He said he knows that it sounds like a cliché, but with his schedule being busy between the two stores, every minute with his wife and kids is priceless. “When I get a minute to spend with my wife and kids, that’s all I need,” he said.
