Not sure what to say?

Horace was the finest man, both professionally and personally that I have ever had the honor to work for. He always had a smile on his face. Oh how he loved his candy. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. He will surely be missed by all.

No matter where I went at KSC, if someone said "Horace" we knew who he or she meant. When I retired, I felt fortunate that I got to tell Horace I respected him more than anyone I had ever worked with.

Peggy, Marcia, Karen and family,

John and I want to let you know how grateful we are that we knew Horace. He was a true gentleman, with a quick smile, and genuinely cared about all who worked for him. And, both of you were so friendly to us whenever we would see you in the neighborhood. May God richly bless and comfort all of you.

I first met Horace in the 70’s while working as a contractor in design for the new space shuttle systems. At that time, things were hectic with some anxiety by all on what was required from us to finalize these system designs.

I knew Horace was a senior level NASA engineer so I did not know what to expect. It was amazing to me not only how technically astute he was but how...

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Horace will always be remembered by me as true gentleman and a person who exuded his love for the space program. Horace always told what and how the situation was, in a kindly, but strong way. He was always true to his fellow workers. He will be missed.

I had the privilege and honor of knowing and working with Horace as a member of his Main Propulsion System Team during Shuttle launches. He was extremely knowledgeable and possessed an outstanding gift for being able to organize the resolution of complex launch issues in a timely manner. He established a very high bar when it came to engineering integrity and excellence. He will always be admired and respected by all who came in contact with this fine southern gentleman and friend.

I have known Horace for some forty years through the Apollo and the Space Shuttle programs and as a neighbor in Satellite Beach. He is respected and admired by more people than anyone else that I have ever known. I count it as a great privilege to have worked with him and directly for him on the Shuttle Program. No one ever worked longer or harder or with more dedication for any project that he was connected with than Horace. He will be missed, Our thoughts and prayers are with Peggy...
