Stephen Horton

of Palmerston, passed away peacefully at the Grand River Hospital, Kitchener on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 in his 60th year. Beloved husband of Terry (Schuknecht) for 39 years. Dear father of Chris Horton (fiancé Linda Black) of Palmerston and Nikki (husband Jozef Mikulec) of Arthur. Grandfather of Xavier. Predeceased by his parents Floyd (Bill) (1999) and the late Jean (Ritchie) Horton (2018).

Brother of the late Greg Horton (2006) and his wife Debbie Horton of Orangeville, the late Sharon Scott (2016) and her husband the late Lorn (2019) of Parry Sound, Willy Horton and his wife Twila of Edmonton, and Linda Buckley and her husband Richard of Palmerston.

Fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews; Brad and Melanie Horton of Orangeville, Kelly and Mike Lehman of Orangeville; Larry and Carolyn Scott of Edmonton, BJ Stevens of Port Carling; Chelsea and Jesse Nebo of Edmonton, Justin and Samantha Horton of Edmonton; Billy Buckley of London and Jessica Buckley of Drayton. Great Uncle of Ellie, Maddi, Aubrie, Kenzie, Haley, Jorja, Sydney, Danica and Kendra.

Fondly remembered by his friends and neighbours. To Steve, family is where life starts and where love never ends. He was a true ‘family’ man; both blood and extended, he would do anything for any of them, and to be a part of Steve’s family – you knew this and felt it. He was loved beyond measure and will be terribly missed by everyone.

To honour Steve’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will take place at a later date and will be announced at that time.
