"Happiness is not a destination, it's a mode of transportation"

James Horn, Jr., age 51, of Delta, Ohio passed away on April 8, 2013, surrounded by his loving family. James was born in Toledo on October 4, 1961, to James and Beulah (Bollinger) Horn, Sr. Jim was an avid fisherman and hunter, as well as a passionate fan of the Detroit Tigers and Notre Dame football.

A devoted son, husband, father and brother he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
