It is with profound sadness and in loving memory that we announce the passing of Terry Horne, late of Ridgeway, Ontario, who was in his 92nd year. Terry was "gifted his wings" on February 5, 2021 and is now at home and at peace. He was born on August 20th, 1929 in Evanston, Ill., U.S.A. Terry and his wife Cheryl have lived in the Ridgeway area for the past 28 years, previously from Burlington, Ontario. Predeceased by first wife, Virginia (Ginny), his mother, Blanche, father Alfred, and brother James, Survived by wife Cheryl, brothers William (Lanny) and Richard (Rick), son Jay (Jo-Ann), daughter Sandy (Jeff), son Sean (Eva), step-son Jay Jordan (Elizabeth). Grandchildren: Jessica-Lyn (Hunor), Isaac, Alexis (Jorden), Mathias and Samantha and many nieces and nephews. For 35 years, Terry found success as the Vice President of Sales and Merchandise with Robinson's Department Store in Hamilton, Ontario and served on the Edith H. Turner Foundation Board of Directors for several years. More recently, Terry served his community as an Elder at the First United Church in Sherkston Ontario. He was a great lover of sunshine, boating, an avid golfer and loved the Golden Era of Hollywood films, westerns and musicals. Terry will be fondly remembered wearing his much loved and well worn "Indiana Jones" hat and birthday "bling". Terry and Cheryl enjoyed many "RV'ing" adventures in their retirement years, travelling around Canada and the US - making many friends and memories along the way. Terry especially liked the song "Somewhere over the Rainbow" and took great pride in helping to promote his daughter Sandy's musical projects, including the band "Spoons". Indeed, our entire family has been blessed by having his support in our lives. Terry was the kind of man you couldn't help but love, respect and adore. He shone with a genuine wit and a cheeky sense of humour. He was always ready with a playful joke or an impish one-liner; always willing and able to keep everyone laughing. Besides his light-hearted nature, Terry was an ever present, loving husband, father, grandfather and good friend who adored his dog, Sheba, his wine and more than a little bit of salt on his dinner plate. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Maple Park Lodge in Fort Erie for their exemplary and loving care of Terry for the last four years of his life. Celebration of Life to be announced in the spring. In lieu of flowers, should you wish, donations to the Alzheimer's Association or Maple Park Lodge (6 Hagey Street, Fort Erie, ON L2A-5M5) would be appreciated. Arrangements in care of JJ Patterson & Sons Funeral Residence, 19 Young St., Welland. Online memories and condolences at
