As many of you may know, on 30th September Jimmy (Thor) Thorneycroft passed away after suffering from stroke and a bleed to the brain. He left his partner, Bernie of twenty-five years, two sons, Scott and Conor, and two grandchildren, Harry and Ethan.
Jimmy was a well respected and liked Fusilier within the second battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. Whoever met Jimmy, or came into contact with him, automatically made a friend for life, he was definitely a brother from another mother.
Jimmy lived life to the fullest, and put his family and the memories they made together first. Unfortunately this meant he had no savings or insurance. To help his family cover funeral costs, we are setting up this Go Fund Me in hopes to raise enough money to take away some of the financial pressure off his family during a time when they just need to be with each other to grieve the loss of a partner, father, grandfather and lifelong friend. Jimmy was someone who would do anything for anyone, if you could find it in your heart to donate as little or as much as you can, in a time like this, every little helps.
On behalf of Bernie and the boys, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you wholeheartedly for taking the time to read this page and for your kind donations.
