Community remembers 11-year-old killed in hunting accident

BERLIN, Wis. — At Riverside Park on Friday night, a crowd dressed in blaze orange could be heard singing, praying, and sharing stories of 11-year-old Easton Thom, who died in a hunting accident last weekend.

Thom was in sixth grade at Berlin Middle School. During the vigil, held at Riverside Park in the Town of Berlin, his classmates recalled always counting on the 11-year-old to make them laugh on a bad day, join in on their classroom jokes, and bring joy to those he loved.

A benefit account for Easton Thom’s family is set up at Farmers and Merchants Bank of Berlin. Checks can be sent to:
