Thurman Lee Horton Obituary
Lee was born to Elzie and Dorothy Horton in Post, Texas. Lee graduated from Bakersfield College. He joined the army in 1967. He was proud of his service as a Crew Chief on a helicopter in Vietnam. He distinguished himself by receiving the Bronze Star Medal with Valor Device for acts of heroism in a combat zone. Lee was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He leaves a legacy of Christian faith and patriotic love of his country to his family. Lee loved nothing more than traveling with Donna. He also loved jamming on his guitar with his friends, fishing with his son, or hitting up the casino with his buddy, Ger.
Those who mourn his passing include his wife of 45 years, Donna; his son, Michael and his wife Nicole; his son, Doug; his grandson, Gavin; granddaughters Brandy Cobb, Brittney Farinas and husband, Kennedy, and many other family members and friends.
