Thomas Edward Thornton Jr.
I did not know Tom as long as many others but feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know him while working on the 100th anniversary "Wing Ding" for the Boy Scouts! Tommy was a true Maine classic. My sympathies to your family at this time.
I am the daughter of Vern and Karen Cunningham
I am truly and deeply sorry for your loss. Some of my favorite childhood memories are snow mobiling and ice fishing at camp with Tommy, you, and kids. I will always cherish these memories forever. Even though I live far away, my thoughts are with you and your family. Stay strong and hang in there.
It seems like yesterday that Tommy was opening holes in opposing defensive lines while playing guard on the OTHS football team.
RIP my man- you are gone but not forgotten.
Tom's Family, we met while serving on the SBA Advisory board. We were the subcommittee that annually chose the Small Business winners from Maine to National.It was serious business and Tom took to the challenge like a fish to water. He respected these emerging businesses, remembering his humble beginnings, he praised the honorees with good wishes and energized them. He always had the same word of advise "be happy in your life." I feel Tom was happy. I miss his smile and laughter. May you all be comforted in the knowledge that Tom was loved by many.
To Tom's family, I extend my deepest sympathy. I remember him as a terrific guy, talking with him at the truck dealership about fishing and his outboard motors. He loaned me his pickup to go for a Dysarts breakfast many times while my truck was repaired.. One time I took his pickup to a town near Ellsworth to pick up my new cocker spaniel puppy, Maggie. Over the years, Mag and I stopped to see the girls and Tom. They loved her and Tom would pick her up and hug her. Of course many treats were enjoyed. My prayers are with all of you-God bless you John Miller Chapman, Maine
