Dallin Thomas Thornton, 8, of Blackshear, passed away Friday morning, May 19, 2023, at his residence following a courageous battle with Farber’s disease.
Born in Brunswick, GA on January 26, 2015, he had lived in Pierce County all his life. Dallin was a student at Blackshear Elementary School. He was all boy and loved fishing, sharks, monster trucks, Nerf guns, swimming, goats, chickens, and the Georgia Bulldogs. He loved his family and was a mama’s boy and his daddy’s best buddy. Dallin loved Jesus and enjoyed listening to stories in the Bible about fishing. We’re sure Jesus is showing him the best fishing holes in Heaven now. He was a member of Walkerville Baptist Church.
Survivors include his parents, Garrett Anthony & Telisa Jacobs Thornton of Blackshear; his sister, Kaylena Sudduth of Blackshear; his brother, Syler Jacobs of Blackshear; his maternal grandparents, Wayne Jacobs (Sarah Phelps) of Kingsland and Carol Briggs of Waycross; his paternal grandparents, Phillip Thornton of Blackshear, and Margaret Locklair of Kingsland; his girlfriend, Lakelynn Harris of Blackshear; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
