I will always cherish the memories of driving to Moeller with Mike, and playing baseball with him. I could always count on Mike to share a laugh and good times. I will remember his warm smile when we crossed paths at UD.
My Deepeset condolences to the Thorne family. Ill never forget parking cars as a Freshman at football games with Mike. We would check out every girl that came through the gates. As others have said he was always smiling, always laughing.
Dearest Thorne Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Mikey. There are so many memories I have of us at St. Gabriel’s and when our families would get together. We always had a great time together and I will always cherish these memories. Words could never express the loss that you must feel. I pray that God holds you in the palm of His hand at this time and that you find peace in knowing that Mikey is no longer suffering. May God Bless your family during this difficult time!
My deepest sorrows and condolences to the Thorne Family. It was an honor to know Mike “King” and be a part of his More to Life family at UD. What a truly beautiful and loving person he was. My thoughts, prayers, and love are with you during this difficult time.
143 forever and always,
To the Thorne Family,
My sincere condolences on the passing of Mike. I have nothing but fond memories of Mike and his days at Moeller and his participation in the baseball program. He was a true Man of Moeller and the type of player that coaches love to have on the team. May you all gain strength and comfort knowing that his earthly pain is over and that he is enjoying everlasting life in Heaven with Jesus.
Michael was my “Dad” on the More 2 Life retreat at the University of Dayton in 2003. He was an incredible soul who taught me a lot over that brief weekend. He taught me it was okay to cry once in a while. I’ll never forget him or that experience.
Dear Mary and Tom,
We can only imagine your heartbreak. We will always remember Mikey as that sweet little boy on the beach so many years ago. Our prayers are with you all. Mark and Deb Archer
Mike was a kind and generous person. He opened his home for my son to share during a difficult time and he helped to make him whole. It is very sad indeed that he has gone from his loving family. Our prayers and hopes ae with him and with his family.
Dearest Thorne Family (i.e., the Chucks),
I can’t begin to imagine the torrent of emotions you must feel losing such a young and beloved child and brother, while also knowing his body and soul finally found peace. I pray you find comfort knowing how your family was a true blessing to Mikey’s life, and that his life was a blessing to all whom he touched. May you find strength, serenity, and grace through the upcoming and ongoing challenges of re-ordering your worlds without him. I wish dearly I could be there with you to celebrate Mikey’s life and share with you the rites of his passing. All of my love and condolences.
My prayers are with you, and wishing you peace.
Mary, Tom, TJ,and Matthew. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time. No words can be said that will make your pain and sorrow go away. Just remember you have family and many friends that care about you and Mikey and you are being remembered and prayed for daily. May God bless and keep Mikey in his loving arms.
Mary & Bob Burns
Myself and Lowe’s street will always miss you.
My condolences to the Thorne family. I played sports with Mike in High School and needless to say, he was a great person. I never forget Mike’s laugh after he told a funny joke in pregame warm ups. There was never a day that passed that Mike wasn’t laughing or smiling. I will always remember the fun times we had back in the day. I haven’t seen Mike in a long time, but will never forget him. May he rest in peace. Drew Frietch
I am so sorry for your loss. Mike was a terrific man. His smile and attitude always brightened our school when he was here.
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
My deepest sympathy goes to the Thorne family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. Mike will be missed dearly.
My condolences to the Thorne family. I played baseball with Mike in Junior High and a little bit in High School and enjoyed it very much. I’ll remember him as a guy who loved a good laugh and had infectious energy.
My first memory of Mike encapsulates the man.
We had met on Craigslist as he was looking for a roommate and I was looking for a room in a new town, Cincinnati. The day we had scheduled where I would first meet him and sleep over, he happened to have a baseball game a few minutes after I arrived. He gave me a hug, said nice to meet you and then proceeded to say eat all the food you want and here is the password to my computer if you need to play any music or check anything. The house is yours. Then he left.
He returned and took me out to dinner and the next day showed me around town.
What a gentleman and true follower in Christ. See you in Heaven someday, my man. Hope you’re playing some Rockband with the angels.
Man I can’t believe this!! This kills me but I want you to enjoy being in the place we all hope to get to some day and I am sorry that I didn’t get to say goodbye man. This cant be true man I can remember us hanging everyday in high school and now to hear this….I am sorry man I am sorry ………I will see you soon!!
My deepest condolensces to all of Mike’s family & friends. I have not seen Mike in several years, but remember his kindness & sense of humor very well. I am sure Mike’s memory will be with everyone forever. I am saying many prayers for Mike & all who were close to him.
May you rest in peace and know that you were loved by many people.
Kate, Bob and Michelle Bubak
