Julius Thurn

Obituary of Julius Thurn

Julius was a hard-working man, who did his best to provide for his family. He was very talented when it came to working with his hands, and could fix a lot around the house. He was truly blessed with a large and loving family, and he had the honor of having 9 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.

Julius truly enjoyed being in nature, spending time in the woods when he was able. Reading was another pastime of Julius’, he went through books quickly and happily. One of his favorite things to do was golf. Please take a golf tee to take home with you, so that you can always remember how Julius was a hole in one in your heart.
