Growing up Thorne was fueled by the approval of his older brother and his hard working family members. He was lucky to have a twin sister as a sidekick. From the building blocks that his parents instilled in him he gained hard work from his father and care from his mother. In his youth he was small in stature, however, he made up for this in character and heart, becoming the crazy kid with a passion for competition and people!
He believes anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Due to this he will be up all night breaking down the simplest of a process to make it better, then complain the next morning saying he is tired. His passion for competition led him to play collegiate basketball after his 3 years at Musselman High school. His favorite achievement there he says is meeting his wife Karalyn. Shortly after graduating at the University of Valley Forge he joined the West Virginia Army National Guard. Assigned to a Medical Evacuation Uh-60 Blackhawk company who he deployed with in 2020-21.
Thorne still carries this desire to be the best and bring out the best in those around him to this day. With his role in Top Gun Sealcoating you will quickly see that he is dedicated to the purpose of the business, as well as the customers relationship we establish on each and every job. You’ll spot Thorne by his abnormally tall and slender frame walking to greet you with a smile and a firm handshake. He will probably be singing some song and dancing as he works that has direct correlation. Soon after the job he will be complaining that he is hungry as his high metabolism keeps him wanting food 24/7.
Thorne, his wonderful wife Karalyn and son Jackson reside in West Virginia where they enjoy play days with their Saint Bernard Zoey. Calling Berkeley County home for Thorne has been something he has known now for 30 years and he wouldn’t change it for the world.
