Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

James Henry Thorn, age 68

James Henry Thorn, 68, of Sheridan passed away on December 25, 2020.  He was born on June 29, 1952 to the late Fred and Jackie Thorn.

He was a handsome and humble man who lived life to the fullest and loved his daughters.  James enjoyed old westerns and his passion ran wild for horses.  If he got bucked off he got right back up there.  He managed the triple crown rodeo and like Jesus he was a great construction carpenter.  He was nominated for honorable service in the United States armed forces in gratitude for his war time services.

He was preceded in death by parents, sister Grace, and brother Larry.

He is survived by daughters Kimberly Thorn, Jackie Aikins, and Charly Thorn; his grandchildren Brittany, Brandy, Trista, Peyton, Jaylin, Dillon, and Emily; six great grandchildren; siblings Jack Thorn (Anita), Heath Thorn (Gretchen), Fred Thorn (Tina); and a host of extended family and friends.

Arrangements are entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas.  501-982-3400
