1962 - 2023

Maurice Edward John Thornton passed away peacefully at the West Parry Sound Health Centre on Wednesday, June 14th, 2023. Age 61 years. Adoring son of Gloria Thornton ‘Mum’ and the late Morris Thornton ‘Dad’. Dear brother of Christine (Don) Sands; Kelly (Tish) Thornton; Shelley (Bob) Kuzyk; and Susan Thornton (Bill Vowels). Loving uncle and great uncle to his many nieces and nephews. Pre-deceased by his special friend and partner Pat Stroud. Fondly remembered by his other relatives and friends.

Maury is now at peace after a courageous and adventurous life. He will be missed, loved, and forever remembered.

As was Maury’s wish, cremation has taken place.

I am so sorry to hear about Maury's passing. I have many fond memories of time spent with Maury and the Thornton family. When I came home to visit my Mom I tried to see Maury. The time before my brother's passing it makes me smiling remembering our visit. We sat outside and talked for hours, laughed and he teased me about the new man in my life. He had such a great smile. He will be missed my many.

I'm so sorry that Maury has passed away. Last time we talked was when Gloria was in hospital and we were there with a few others to visit Gloria, this was quite a few years ago. Maury will be missed, and I hope he has some good travels on the other side. :)
God bless
