A tribute to my Dad.

One behalf of my Mom Gerry, my Sisters Karen and Bethann, myself and our families; thank you all for being here to celebrate the life of a truly great man.

I’m standing here today with both sorrow and joy.
In that way, maybe, you’re sitting here this morning feeling exactly like me.

I can say truthfully that the pain I suffered myself seeing the effects of Parkinson’s Disease from a distance is nothing compared to what Mom has been dealing with first hand over the past several years. We owe her an enormous debt of gratitude. Thank you, Mom. Dad was blessed to have you by his side taking such loving care of him

My Dad was an extraordinarily honest, thoughtful, and caring man with numerous talents, skills and abilities.

With your permission I’d like to highlight a few of his many accomplishments.

As I look back on everything that he did I don’t think there is any doubt that he was tremendously successful having achieved most, if not all, of his goals and aspirations.

Dad was born in 1937. He was the middle child in between his sister Barb and brother Phil. They lived in a modest row home in West Oaklane and spent summers in Kirkwood playing tennis, ping pong, darts and card games and I should mention, he was unbeatable, ask anyone who’s played against him in ping pong or darts. In the 40’s he attended grade school and went through high school in the early 50’s. Elvis was just getting started and so was my Dad. Gerry and Tim started dating in High School. They danced the jitterbug and drove cars from the 30’s and 40’s. After graduation, Dad left home to study engineering at Purdue. He must have done a lot of thinking about his High School sweetheart back home because he dropped out after 1 semester, came home and got a job with PECO. They soon after got engaged and were married in 1958. He was 21 and Mom was 20. The night before the wedding a major snowstorm dropped 12 inches of snow on the city; thus began the whirlwind of their married life. They bought our Passmore Street home and by his 25th birthday they had 2 kids in diapers and another one on the way. His job with PECO was perfect for raising a family. He started work early in the mornings and was home by early afternoon when he would work on the house and help with the kids. He would put to good use the construction skills he learned from his father.
We moved to Elizabeth Rd in ‘65 where he would make improvements to that house too. As we kids grew older and got into scouts and sports, he made time for coaching and going on camping trips with the scouts. He had an adventurous spirit and loved the outdoors. When I got into Gymnastics Dad never missed a meet and would take home movies of me and my teammates. When I started traveling with the Temple Team Mom and Dad attended nearly every gymnastics meet, home and away. It was the same with Karen and Bethann’s activities. He did not like to miss anything we did.

He was also very close with his father and siblings as summers were special too. In the 60’s and 70’s we all spent at least 2 weeks together in Ocean City every summer. Grandpop Sr, Aunt Barb, Uncle Ed, Aunt Ellen, Uncle Phil and all the cousins. It was always a great vacation at the beach as us kids were finding new ways to drive our parents crazy.

When Karen and Gary, Mark and Bethann, and Suzann and I got married and started having kids he shifted into Grandpop mode and if you were one of his grandchildren you were really lucky because he got the opportunity to retire early at 55 and grasped it with both hands. He was the best grandfather to Michael, Steven, Nicholas, Sam, Max, August and Justin and loved attending every major event possible, in between rounds of golf, of course. Golfing and skiing were 2 of his passions which showed his adventurous side.

My folks loved nothing more than spending time with family. These moments were everything to them. Whether it was celebrating birthdays, Thanksgiving dinners, or Tree trimming parties; they loved their home full of family and friends with good food and drink. Just ask any grandchild, who makes the best Shirley Temples?

Living at Pinecrest on the Golf Course was another life goal. He played golf almost every day for a full year. Also; Bethann was now in Jackson Hole so why not build a house in Idaho and buy an RV to travel around the country. All of the kids traveled in the RV all across American and Canada or spent summers in Star Valley.

But he didn’t stop there. He took all of us on 2 spectacular all-expense-paid vacations. One to Puerto Vallarta to Celebrate 50 years of marriage and another to Florida where we also took a cruise ship to the Caribbean.

Shortly after that; Mom and Dad found themselves enjoying their sunset years loving the warmth of Arizona and the coolness of Southern Wyoming. Golf was king and new and lasting friendships were formed.

Faith in God also played a significant role in his life, volunteering at the church which we attended every Sunday or helping a friend or neighbor in need. He taught us that it is better to give than to receive and the more you give the more you get. And, he lived it! He even donated the gift of his body to science and his brain to Parkinson’s research in the hope of helping to find a cure for future generations.

I could go on for hours with stories of this incredible man who was Tim Horn. I’m so happy and grateful that my parents were able to enjoy their 61 years of marriage together and at the same time living a life of love to its fullest.

In the end; if I had to sum up how my Dad would like to be remembered – it’s this:

“One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I live in, or the kind of car I drove; but that the world may be a better place because I was important in the life of a child.”

And YES, Dad – you were important – to all of us!

Do you think Dad is in Heaven? No doubt!

Dad, we pray you’re enjoying those heavenly golf courses with all of your loved ones who are there to greet you.

Rest in Peace!
RH

I was a little sad when I heard Uncle Tim had passed. Now he's with grandpop, grandma, mom and Uncle Phil. He's in good hands up there. I'm reminded of all the good times we had on the beaches of Ocean City and all the holiday parties with the entire family. The fishing trips on the Bay were great! I'll never forget the look on Tim's face as Henry stuck the bait knife in the bottom of the boat after baiting his hook. We were out in the middle of nowhere and as we pulled it out, water started to bubble up into the boat. Needless to say, the trip was over for that day and we headed back in. We were all relieved to be back on dry land. Later that day on the beach, we all had a good laugh over that story and for many years to come we enjoyed telling it.
Thanks for all the support at our Gymnastic meets. Take care and say hi to everyone up there. I'll see ya on the other side!
