MICHAEL THORNE Michael Sheahan Thorne, 48, was born in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 22, 1973 to Patrick and Dixie Thorne. Sadly, but peacefully, he passed away on April 22, 2021, after a long illness. In his youth he was bright, adventurous, and fearless. He graduated from Valley High School, Class of 1991, where he was an all-star pitcher. He loved to travel and was especially fond of Australia and New Zealand. Wherever he went, he touched the lives of so many. As a Vegas local, true to form, he gravitated towards the hospitality industry where he worked for many years in a variety of hotel and hospitality functions. He was a true son of Las Vegas. Mike had an enormous heart and was beloved for his kindness and his sense of humor. He had a great affection for animals and rescued many during his lifetime. Nothing was more important to him than his family and he spent as much time as he could with them. His smile, laugh, and warmth will be deeply missed. He is survived by his wife, Katy Smircich; parents, Patrick and Dixie; and his brother, Chris (Karen).
