John is survived by his wife of 27 years, Sheila; their two daughters, Hannah (15) and Rachel (13).
John's friends, colleagues and community would like to help ease the financial burden for the Thornton Family. The funds collected will go directly to his wife and daughters to help cover funeral, medical and ongoing expenses.
