CALEDONIA – Thor Donald Thornton, age 26, passed away unexpectedly at Ascension All Saints Hospital on Sunday, July 7, 2019.

Thor was born in Racine on May 22, 1993 to Kenneth Donald Thornton and Cheryl Rognsvoog-Thornton. He was a 2011 graduate of JI Case High School and was pursuing a graphic arts degree from Gateway.
