Michael Horne Obituary

Horne, Michael Graham

With tremendous sadness in our hearts, we share our father’s passing after a decade long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Mike was born in Rothwell, England on April 5th, 1934. He is predeceased by loving parents: Daphne (2001) and Dudley Horne (1981) and younger sister June Horne (2017) Mike leaves behind his loving wife, Josephine of nearly 65 years, his four children: Rosie, Bill (Elaine), Sue (Ron) and Mike jr. (Susan). A wonderful grampy to: Alec, Edric, Brendan, Ashley, Claudia, Maria and Emi.  Also mourning his loss are countless nieces, nephews, cousins and brother’s and sisters- in-law.

Mike had an amazing nearly 90 years as a graduate of Oxford University (MSc Chemistry), a passion for travel (Europe, and North America mostly), building things like: cottages, rotating homes, decks, docks, and home renos. Professionally, he was a chemist for CIL, Copper Cliff, On,  in Burbank CA, Buffalo NY and Toronto. He was passionate about teaching and spent 8 years at LEPSS and Lasalle collectively followed by 20 years at Cambrian College as both a teacher and administrator.

His greatest passions were undoubtedly spending time with family and friends, telling stories, a love for the outdoors, photography and socializing at weddings, birthdays, and family reunions.  

Please consider making donations to your local Alzheimer’s Society. 

Family and friends are invited to join us to attend a Celebration of his Life.   Details to be provided in the near future.
