John Leonard Horton of Red Bay, Alabama passed away on September 2, 2022, at the age of 50.
He was a loving and devoted father and husband. And if you asked him this is where he would want this to end, but I am the better half, so I will keep going. He loved remote control cars (nitro cars). He would spend hours rebuilding them. He loved listening to music. Don't ask me his favorite because he listened to whatever he was in the mood for. He loved to fish and sit around the campfire and just talk and hang out with friends. And before gas prices got so high he enjoyed his long drives to nowhere. He also enjoyed the beach.
He is survived by Leah Horton (Wife), Karlene Horton (Daughter), CJ Strange (Adopted Son), James & Betty Horton (Father & Mother), and Jamie Morrow (Sister).
