John Horn

September 23, 1967 — September 22, 2021


John Patrick Horn, 53, of Kempner TX, passed away on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. A Celebration of his life will be held at 12:30 pm on Thursday, October 7th at Southern Hills Baptist Church, 2920 South F.M. 116, Kempner, TX 76539 followed by a procession to the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen, TX where there will be a military honors ceremony at 3 pm. The service will be live-streamed on Southern Hills Baptist Church's Facebook page.

John was born September 23, 1967, in Arlington, Texas. John is preceded in death by his parents Don and Barbara Horn. John is survived by his wife, Shannon; daughter, Courtney; granddaughters, Kylar and Parker; brother, Russell Horn; sister, and brother-in-law, Kelly and Rich Bartko; nieces, Molly Bembry and Jessica Teeples; nephews, Matthew Horn, John Bartko and Evan Horn.

John proudly served in the US Army from October 15, 1986 - October 31, 2006. His first duty station was at Fort Hood, TX where he met his wife, Shannon. He served in Operation Desert Storm, Bosnia, and two tours during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Over the past 15 years, John was grateful to continue serving the US Army as a contractor on Fort Hood repairing electronic equipment to be mission-ready.

John loved to spend time with family and friends. He loved Christ and the Church. He had an unparalleled personality that made everyone laugh. He enjoyed camping, biking, concerts, games, and watching Cowboys and TCU football. John was the self-proclaimed President, CEO and Founding Member of the “Zero Club”.

John’s verse, Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Grampers’ words of wisdom…… “Check yo self before you wreck yo self” and “Is that how you want to be acting when Jesus comes back?”

In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of John can be made to the granddaughters through Southern Hills Baptist Church (PO Box 638 Copperas Cove, TX 76522).
