Spartan Super-Fan Dallas Thornton Passes Away

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Dec 18, 2013

WILLIAMSTON -- Dallas Thornton, known as the Spartan Super-Fan, passed away Tuesday night.

Thornton was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, and doctors said he wouldn't live past November. But Thornton held on, and his family believes it was because he was waiting for MSU to go to the Rose Bowl.

Prayers go out to the Thornton family. Dallas Thornton was 69, and would have been married 50 years to his wife, Katie Thornton, in April.
