Glen Eugene Horner, 89, passed from this life May 10, 2023, in Hamilton from recent cancer and complications.

Services were Monday, May 15, at Riley Funeral Home. Burial was in Oakwood Cemetery.

Mr. Horner was born Jan. 27, 1934, in Indian Gap to Ernest Lee Horner and Edith Lillian Stewart Horner of Indian Gap. He married Betty Ruth Hamilton in Hamilton on Feb. 3, 1954.

He worked for W.F. & J.F. Barnes Lumber Co. in Hamilton for 13 years, West Texas Produce in Cisco for about six months, Alexander Moulding Mill for two years in the Mill Plant, Anglin Office Equipment in Hamilton for five years as a salesman and Alexander’s for 27 years as a salesman. After retirement, he worked for 1 ½ years parttime in sales until Alexander’s closed.

He was a member of Park Heights church of Christ in Hamilton. He was a Deacon for many years. Mr. Horner enjoyed being with family and friends, going to Storm’s in the mornings for breakfast with his buddies, exercising at the Hamilton Wellness Center, drinking coffee and eating donuts or brownies with the men at their C.A.V.E. (Citizens Against Virtually Everything) meeting every Saturday morning at the church annex.

Glen also enjoyed church fellowship activities and trips and supporting the Hamilton Bulldogs in football, basketball and volleyball for years.

He always sat with families at the hospital when their loved one had surgery, visited while in the hospital and called to check on those who were sick. Everyone knew they would get a birthday card from him. He had cards ready to mail up to the very end.
