I never had the opportunity of working side by side with Thornton but our roles with BMO did bring us together on numerous occasions over the years. On a personal basis I recall Thornton as a very thoughtful and helpful person, but it was probably hearing those he worked with describing him as a true team player that probably made the biggest impression on me. That's quite a complement from co-workers in the ever changing world of banking. I know that my life is richer from having known Thornton. My sincere condolences to his wife Janet and the family.

Remembering a gentleman and colleague who was a staunch professional, always respectful of others, always living with integrity - while striving for the best for others, and quietly demonstrating the essence of his faith. To leave a positive familial, professional, and public legacy - as Thornton did - is surely to have lived here well! Respectfully - with heartfelt condolences - while yet celebrating life - in an ever brighter day! [Ronald (Ron) Leslie]
