Larry Thon attended Ottawa Hills High School and went on to graduate from Northwestern University, according to his online obituary. He was also an officer in the United States Marine Corps for four years, which included a tour in Vietnam.
Thon leaves behind a wife, daughter, son, brother, and aunt.
The American Legion Charles A. Conklin Post No. 28 in Grand Haven will host a celebration of life for Thon at 1 p.m. on July 13. Mulligan’s Hollow Lodge will also host a happy hour in his honor from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on July 12.
Instead of flowers, Thon’s loved ones ask that donations be made in his honor to Grand Haven’s “Save the Catwalk” campaign.
