Kenneth Fred Thornton, age 84, passed away on November 30, 2022 in Cincinnati, Ohio where he lived and worked most of his days. He was the beloved father of Michael (Mary) Thornton, loving grandfather of Michael Joseph, Rachel and Sarah, dear great grandfather of Ameila, Caleb, and Malachi, devoted brother of Lawerence, Henry, Charles, Mary, Bertha, and Naomi.

He was preceded in death by his devoted wife of 47 years, Reba Jean Heatherly Thornton; parents, Fred and Eva Thornton Clair.

Kenneth’s pride was his faith and joy, which was contagious to everyone he met. His humor rang out in both song with a tune from his banjo or jokes to lift your spirit.

Ephesians 5:19-20 Speaking to one another in Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the father.

No funeral or memorial service is immediately planned. The family will notify loved ones in the future when a service is planned.
