On September 13, 2017, Richard Lee Horne, husband, father, and pioneer, passed away in San Antonio, Texas. Richard took his last breaths surrounded with love and comfort by friends and family, including his wife and his two daughters.
Richard was born on February 13, 1943 in Kokomo, Indiana to Jack and Velma Horne, and he was the oldest of three brothers and one sister. Richard was a graduate of St. Mary's University in San Antonio earning a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Business Administration.
Richard was a larger-than-life figure with varied interests. He worked as an accountant, businessman, and conservationist. As a passionate activist in wildlife and habitat conservation, Richard was a member of several like-minded organizations including the Boone and Crockett Club, Game Conservation International, and the Safari Club International. Richard was an accomplished hunter, and he loved travelling the world hunting big game. Over his lifetime, he successfully harvested multiple trophy animals including a bull moose in Alaska, a brown bear in Siberia, and a European Red stag in New Zealand.
Richard was always ready for the next great adventure. He particularly enjoyed celebrating life with his friends and family, and he truly loved making the people in his life feel special. His keen wit and mischievous sense of humor compelled everyone around him to stay on their toes but always brought smiles to their faces.
An active philanthropist, Richard enthusiastically supported the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Junior Livestock Auction, and he was an active leader of the Y.O. Social Club's charitable activities.
He is survived by his devoted wife, Lynell Horne of San Antonio; daughters Mylissa Richardson (Paul) and Becky Baylor (Matthew) of Spring Branch; grandchildren Austin Richardson, Jake Richardson, Logan Baylor and Katherine Baylor; and Ruth Horne of San Antonio, mother of his loving daughters. He also leaves behind and will be warmly remembered by his sons-in law David Biegler (Kellie) and their children Karlie and Brooks of Seagrove Beach, Florida, and J. Brett Biegler of Delray Beach, Florida.
A visitation is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. on September 17, 2017 at Sunset Memorial Park. A rosary prayer service and funeral service is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. September 18, 2017 at St. Jerome Catholic Church. Flowers and cards can be sent to Sunset Memorial Park.
