Thoughts for Ronald D. Thornton Jr.;

  • Dennis H. Eiler says:

    I have 4 brothers by birth, but Ron and I were brothers by choice. We got to do a lot of things together, going to see Nascar races in Texas and at Bristol. We took the Beech Baron to the beach in Gulfport. We were partners on Chapter 11’s pool team. We rode our Harleys together. We drove Nascar stock cars at Chicago Motor Speedway. He stayed in Terre Haute with me and I was always sorry to see him leave. My daughter Jessica loved Ron and when told of his passing said he was one of her favorite people ever. He was good hearted, hardworking and someone I enjoyed just hanging out with. In summary, he was one of the best friends someone could have, and I will always miss him.
