Our little superhero, Steven Anthony Thornton III (Junie), son of Chloe Allen and Steven Thornton Jr, became an angel on October 1, 2019. Junie was born June 6, 2016 and lived a short beautiful life in Louisville, KY. He was incredibly outgoing and had the biggest “cheesiest” smile you’d ever seen. He loved playing football with his daddy and his Hulk smash action figure, watching movies, playing video games, and most of all he loved food. His laugh was contagious, his hugs were warm and so full of love. Even though it was only a short time, Junie brought so much love, joy, and happiness to everyone he knew. Just seeing his face would change your day. He will forever be OUR Hulk Smash.
Steven is survived by his parents. Two siblings, Lovelynn Rice and Laraynah Thornton. His grandparents, Lisa and Dontez Westmoreland; Brandi Rice, Daniel Rice (Cheryl); Kelly Greenwood, Mistelle and Steven Thornton Sr. His great grandparents, Nina and Charles Lewis Sr, Rick Gambrell, Donna Rice, Melvin Rice, John Jenkins Sr. (Kay), Eldoese and Dennis Craven.
