I found out last night that Doyle Thornton, the head director at Bob Jones while I was the assistant there, died last week from a number of health issues he’d been dealing with. I worked with him for 11 years, my first job, and while we might have had our differences and disagreements at times (who wouldn’t over that amount of time working that closely together), he was a man that loved his job and loved his students and wanted them to be the best they could be. I still remember during my interview him saying, “We don’t teach music, we teach kids.”
From stories about his cat Blacky, or about his times at Southern Miss, or about where Bob Jones as a school was to what it had become, to random analogies explaining musical concepts, he endeared himself to his students and they loved him for it.
He was an “all-in” Bob Jones Patriot for 27 years, and he was an institution at that school. I am incredibly thankful for my time at Bob Jones, which wouldn’t have been possible had he not been willing to give me the chance to work there.
Thank you, Mr. Thornton.
Y’all join me in praying for his sweet wife, Ginger, and for his son Bobby and his wife and their two daughters.
