With the sudden loss of our father, Scott Horn, we are overwhelmed with the love and support of our family, friends and local Laurel community, which we have been apart of for the past 25 years.
In light of our great sadness and with heavy hearts we are planning a "Celebration of Life" to honor all that he loved and accomplished and the relationships that he had with so many.
Scott was a father of four with his youngest daughter, Kelly (18), graduating from Laurel High School this May and his youngest son, Riley (20), currently still in college.
Our Family is strong and we will get passed this tremendous tragedy together, but there will forever be a missing piece of our souls. We sincerely appreciate everyone's kindness and support during this life changing time.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will go towards assisting the family with funeral services and support.
We ❤️ You Dad! Rest In Peace S.A.H.
Scott Alan Horn, 62, passed away suddenly near his home in Laurel, Maryland, on March 16th, 2017. Scott, the son of William J. "Jack" & Joyce A. Horn, was born in Bethlehem, PA where he grew up in a Navy family, living in Scotland and Key West as a child and eventually settling down in Virginia Beach, VA. He attended Kellam High School, Class of 72’ and went on to participate in the Air Force ROTC program at East Carolina University where he was a member of the graduating class of 1976. He then pursued his masters at East Tennessee State University until receiving his first set of orders to flight school with the U.S. Air Force.
Scott served six years in the Air Force, 1977-1983, as a C-130E Hercules Navigator with the Green Hornets of the 61st Tactical Airlift Squadron at Little Rock Air Force Base, AR. In 1983 he enjoyed a five year stint as an Arkansas Real Estate Broker and discovered what would later become a lifelong passion. Scott graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Academy in Quantico, VA, in 1988 and joined the Department of Justice as a Special Agent for the FBI. In October of 1988 he reported to his first assignment at the FBI Field Office in Omaha, NE, and later transferred to the FBI Field Office in Baltimore, MD where he served out the remainder of his time with the Bureau and retired after 23 years of honorable and faithful service. Scott’s most notable case was working in conjunction with the joint task force on the successful capture of the D.C area Sniper in 2002.
Scott was the best son, father & friend that anyone could ask for. He loved life, his family, his career and the new experiences & people that came along with all of them. He was a coach and board member for the Laurel Little League, an active parent in boy scouts and could often times be found around town working on his real estate properties while chatting with neighbors and business owners alike. Scott’s passions were abundant, he lined up all four of his children with their first job, he enjoyed playing golf, a good game of scrabble or poker and was an avid Baltimore Orioles fan and season ticket holder. He was a YMCA Youth Ping-Pong champion, enjoyed dancing, had a traveling disk jockey business while in the Air Force and held a love for music that lead him to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on a regular basis. He was a staple for the Laurel community and could be seen on any given day driving around town in his old Green Ford Van or cream Ford Granada, strolling down the aisles of Lowe’s or Home Depot whistling some Sinatra in his classic plaid flannel shirt and searching for his next home energy efficient project to work on while he saved up for the eventual purchase of his first electric car. He loved to cook, he drank cold milk at dinner, traveled around with a tall plastic cup of pepsi and ice to the brim, and he liked his burgers with extra red onions and pickles. He had a habit of telling jokes and laughing before the punch-line and his laugh was the kind that could only make you smile, and we did. He loved life and he was the best.
He is survived by his parents, William J. "Jack" and Joyce A. Horn; sister, Pam; wife of 26 years, Anne; loving children, John, Julie, Riley and Kelly; precious grandchildren, Knox, Elianna, and Athena; and his beloved pets, Keynai, Muffin, Mr. Kitty and Charlie.
