Richard C. Horton, Dad and Poppy, age 85, passed away April 10, 2020 after a long illness. He was born May 4, 1934 in Rutland, VT and was the son of Clarence N. Horton and Bernice R. Cassels (Wood).

Richard married Claudia Smith in 1959 and together they raised six daughters and one son. The pair divorced in 1987 and he married Donna Cyr of Rutland, VT in 2006. The couple resided in Kannapolis, NC.

Richard was proud to serve in the US Marine Corp and fought in the Korean War. He retired from GE and was a devoted member of the Trinity Episcopal Church in Rutland. Richard loved baking and many people will remember him for his delicious pastries and cakes. Aside from being a talented baker Richard was an incredible artist. His works grace the homes of his immediate and extended family and friends.

Survivors include his wife, Donna Horton; his son, Shawn; daughters, Judy, Rebecca, Tracy, Pippa, Erin and Nicole; his step-daughters, Cindy, Lisa, Valerie, Marybeth and Charles. His legacy also extends to his eighteen grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

Sorry for your loss. My mother remembers Clarence and Bernice Horton. They were relatives of Roy Horton, who was my grandfather. And Erie Horton was my fathers uncle, Ronald Horton Sr. God bless you all. Darlene Horton
