David John Howard Thompson, QC, MP (25 December 1961 – 23 October 2010) was the sixth Prime Minister of Barbados from January 2008 until his death from pancreatic cancer on 23 October 2010.

Thompson is the third sitting Prime Minister of Barbados to die in office following the deaths of Tom Adams in 1985 and Errol Barrow in 1987. He is also the 7th head of government of a CARICOM country to die in office since CARICOM was founded in 1973.

Thompson was born in London to Charles Thompson, an Afro-Barbadian porter and painter, and Margaret Knight, a White Barbadian secretary and nurse. Both parents remained strong influences in Thompson's life. Thompson was brought up with his six siblings at Fitts Village, Saint James.
