Jeff Thornton

Aug. 14, 1954 – Nov. 12, 2021

Our charismatic father, Jeff Thornton, born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Aug, 14, 1954, to Don and Lucille Thornton, left his heaven on earth in Greybull, Wyo., on Friday Nov. 12, 2021.

While his memory is carried on by his son, Nick, his daughters Emily and Hannah, and his own siblings Terri, Alan, and Gary, he is remembered by beautiful people from all walks of life: businessmen and women, cowboys and cowgirls, business owners, community members, and anyone willing to listen to his big ideas and larger than life stories.

Services are being planned in both the Salt Lake City and Greybull areas to honor his life; the details will be shared by his kids.

Until then, they invite you to share memories, thoughts and even some laughs on the Facebook group, "Honoring Jeff," at and to see his joy, passion, and personality in a pink and orange sunset, the silver-lined clouds of the Wyoming skies, the string lights throughout Greybull, and any wide open spaces you may find yourself.
