THORNTON, Hugh Richard
Loving and adored father, kind and devoted husband to Bardie, Hugh passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family on October 25, 2006 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Born on February 4, 1929, in Woodstock, Ontario, to Jessie Robertson and Percy Sanford THORNTON, he was the youngest of eight children. Love and appreciation of music and fine art were always encouraged in the household by his mother, an accomplished pianist, and at an early age Hugh began to show great promise in drawing, illustrating and painting. He loved to talk about his days growing up in a large family where late-night chats would turn into early morning discussions of philosophy, science, the arts, and politics. The eight children loved to play pranks on each other, build water-glass orchestras and go-carts, read together and play music. Being in a large family he learned to assume responsibility early, and at age 11, he worked as a parcel boy at Loblaws in order to buy his first bike while later he took on summer jobs delivering ice and bread. The family moved to Toronto in 1938 to the High Park area where Hugh attended Keele St. Elementary School and Humberside Collegiate. At school he excelled in art, music, and literature. He met the love of his life, Barbara BRIGHAM, when she was 15 and he 16, and four years later, they were married while Hugh was attending the Ontario College of Art in the fine art program. He switched into the commercial program when he realized he would need to be able to support a family. During college, Hugh worked steady nights at Goodyear and Stelco, paying for all of his tuition. He won two scholarships and a bursary before he graduated in 1951 and continued to work at Goodyear upon graduation. Subsequently he was employed at Rabjohn Illustrators and after 1 year there, he went to Avro Aircraft where he quickly rose to department head. In 1955, after 3 years of top-secret illustration on the Arrow aircraft program, Hugh left to start his business in partnership as Industrial Art and Publicity Associates which subsequently became Thornton Hall Limited. As an employer, he was very fair and many times in the early days had to finance the payroll unbeknownst to his employees. Usually Hugh would be the last one to close the door, well into the early morning hours, as he built a successful career as illustrator, photographer, artist, copywriter, designer, and typographer. He was a rare one-stop talent that many envied and yet he was the most unassuming man to all who knew him. During the rare moments when he would take time for himself, he would relax with reading or playing Mendelssohn, Chopin, Beethoven and Bach piano pieces. Hugh and Bardie had to be thrifty in the early years, seldom living beyond their means, but still managing to always throw great parties with their many Friends and relatives. The door was always open at the Thornton household, laughter abounded, and visiting out-of-town relatives were never expected to stay in a hotel. In 1960, they bought a cottage on Buckhorn Lake and many happy weekends were spent fishing, water-skiing and boating. After Buckhorn was sold, they bought a cottage on Boshkung Lake north of Minden, Ontario, where Hugh loved to walk in the country with his artist's pad and camera in hand, creating ideas and sketches for some his most beautifully realized landscape paintings. Hugh provided a wonderful home in Don Mills for his wife and children, and loved to go on vacation with their Friends to sunny climes during the winters. He and Bardie instilled in their children strong family values of honesty, integrity, humility, and grace. Hugh was delighted to engage in conversation with his children and extended family and to be taken to task by his kids in discussions on politics or philosophy. The bantering and humour that went on around the table, even right up until the days before his passing, will be remembered and cherished by them forever. He was very proud of his children and their spouses and his adored grandchildren. Hugh was most proud of his accomplishments that occurred in his post-retirement years when he returned to painting. His many beautiful works of art adorn the halls of the family home, and the homes of Friends. He was eternally grateful to the Minden Hills Cultural Centre where his works were regularly shown each summer at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery and where, just in October, he was awarded 1st place in the People's Choice Award at the Members Show. He leaves his beloved wife of 56 years, Barbara BRIGHAM, and their loving children David LIVINGSTONE (Paula ZINOVICH) of Victoria, British Columbia, Gerry THORNTON (Stephen MOORE) of Toronto; and Andrew THORNTON (Sandra REYNOLDS) of Barrie, Ontario. Left to grieve for their adored Grandpa are Colin, Raeanne and Richard MOORE, and Jesse and Emma LIVINGSTONE. Hugh was predeceased by all seven of his siblings: Philip, Margaret (Bud BURROWS,) Bob (Phyllis, Helen,) Marion (Frank KENNEDY), Don (Mimi); Anne (Vince RUSSO), and Gerry. He was a wonderful uncle to Doctor Dan THORNTON (Donna,) Carol PAGNACCO (Ernie), Brian KENNEDY (Katie), Keith KENNEDY (Joan), Gail WILLIAMS (Ken,) Linda CLARY, the late Ted THORNTON, Andrea THORNTON, Philip RUSSO (Mary), Vicki BENOIT (Jerry), Eric Russo, Dianne THORNTON (Mark RECZKIEWICZ), Ian THORNTON (Lisa McLAUGHLIN) and Rob THORNTON. He is survived by his sisters-in-law Hilde THORNTON of Toronto (Dr. Harry HURWITZ,) Leonore THORNTON of Kingston, Jean CAWLEY of Vernon, British Columbia and children Tom, Cathy, and Joy Frances BRIGHAM (John DAVIES) of Victoria and children Becky, Tony, Judy, and Tim; along with brothers-in-law Joe BRIGHAM (Mary) of New Bern and son Phil; and Bill BRIGHAM (Pearl) of Mount Hope and children Cathy, Ruth, and Terry. He is lovingly remembered by dear cousins Kirk and Mary THORNTON of Orillia and Marilyn, Andrea, and Chrissie LEMIEUX of Toronto. He leaves many grand nieces and nephews and a great-grand niece. Deeply saddened are Friends from high school days, business and the art world, the cottages at Buckhorn and Boshkung Lakes, Don Mills and Aurora neighbours, as well as the many caregivers whose hearts were touched by his incredible courage and ceaseless wit and sense of humour. Special thanks goes to our primary care day nurse, Melissa, and primary care night nurse, Dan, our primary support worker, Jacquie, and most especially the Dies family, Bill, Joan, June, Rob, Paul, and Joanne for their generosity of spirit, Friendship, time, love, and personal care for Dad during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation (Cancer Program) would be appreciated. Address: 615 Davis Dr., Suite 304, Newmarket, Ontario. L3Y 2R2. Alternatively, donations may be made to the Hugh Thornton Award. This has been established by the Minden Hills Cultural Centre to be given to a special Grade 8 student at Archie Stouffer Elementary School in Minden who has shown an interest and/or potential in the arts. The address is: Hugh Thornton Award, c/o Dianne GRAHAM, Agnes Jamieson Gallery, 176 Bobcaygeon Road, Minden, Ontario. K0M 2K0 Cremation has taken place. A public memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 19, at Trinity Anglican Church, 79 Victoria St. in Aurora, Ontario at 2 p.m.
