Charles Randy Thorne

 

Funeral services celebrating the life of Charles Randy Thorne of Benton, Louisiana will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 14, 2024 at Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Bossier City. The family will receive friends from 1:30 p.m. until the time of service. Burial will take place at Hill Crest Memorial Park at a later date. Officiating the service will be Rex Cornwell, minister of the Bossier Church of Christ.

Randy was born on May 16, 1960 in Shreveport, Louisiana to Oliver Dee Thorne and Baby Raye Thorne and passed away surrounded by his loving family on January 10, 2024 after a brief illness in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Randy grew up in Bossier City, Louisiana and graduated from Airline High School. He was a member of the Bossier Church of Christ for over 26 years. Randy worked for most of his career in oilfield supply sales where he made many long-lasting friendships. In 1997, he married the love of his life, Jean Thomas Thorne. He was honored to become a father to Lauren Fortner Prothro and Chase Thomas Fortner since their father, Larry Fortner, had been tragically killed in a car accident two years prior. His love and devotion to Jean, his children, and their grandchildren was his greatest joy. They loved “Pappy,” and he was one of their greatest blessings. He loved taking Hudson and ChaseAnn fishing and to Destin, Florida every year for their family vacation. 

Randy is preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Roy Dee Thorne and Ray Dee Thorne; nephew, Darren Thorne; in-laws, B. J. and Frances Thomas; and brother-in-law, Gary Thomas. Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 26 years, Jean Thomas Thorne; daughter, Lauren Prothro and husband Patrick; son, Chase Fortner; grandchildren, Hudson Prothro and ChaseAnn Prothro; brother, William “W” Dee Thorne and wife Orlie; nephew, David Thorne; and brother and sister-in-laws, Mike and Sherri Pool, Jack and Marilyn Greenhouse, and Dottie Thomas.  

Honoring Randy as pallbearers will be W. Thorne, David Thorne, Chase Fortner, Hudson Prothro, Patrick Prothro, Mike Pool, Jerry Salyards, and David Kelsh.
