Mike Conner “Red” Thornton, 79, passed away March 11, 2011, at his residence in Mathiston.
Mr. Thornton was born November 16, 1931, in Starkville to the late Arther Green and Cluffie Myrtle Thornton.
He was a retired contractor.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Irene Messeck, and brother, Shade Thornton.
