Obituary of John Horton
Suddenly on his 79th birthday, Dad/Poppa took his last breathe. He loved his life like no other man. His love for his family was one of a kind. Dad/Poppa has never been able to recover since the loss of his one true love (Faye/Nanny). Now he can finally sleep, because he will be with her. (whether she was ready for him or NOT!) Our dad leaves us to carry on his strong family commitment with the following John was the beloved husband of late Norma “Faye” Horton (nee Germyn). He was cherished greatly by his children Karen (Leonard Hummel), Jackie (David Barber), and Todd (Claudette).
