He has 8 nieces and nephews, 5 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren and many wonderful friends. Bill Horner lived all the days of his life. He started at a young age, working hard - plowing for his grandpa and then they would go fishing. He was injured serving his country in Vietnam. When he returned home he worked hard to become a master carpenter. He developed his company and specialized in commerical interior trim. He left fingerprints in many places East of the Mississippi. During the course of his career, he mentored many men. He put that same energy into cooking and became an incredible chef. Bill put as much energy into enjoying life, as he did hard work. He enjoyed his dogs, dancing, Pink Floyd, playing cards, fishing, golfing, playing pool and spending time with his friends. Bill loved fireworks, Buckeye football and was an amazingly loyal Brown's fan. When he retired from carpentry and became restless, he began driving for Uber and developed several new friendships.
Bill was injured serving his country and continued to proudly support his country when he returned home. He supported Honor Flight and was proud to drive his patriotic truck in many local parades for several years. Bill enjoyed a long life after returning home from Vietnam, and gave the last full measure of service as a result of the use of Agent Orange. Bill is our hero.
