John R. Horn, age 51, of Lombard, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 21, 2021.
John was the loving husband of Kathleen; beloved father of Mitchell and Monica Horn, and stepfather of Allison Yuknis; cherished son of the late Gene and the late Shirley Horn nee Schalkey; dear brother of the late Keith Horn, Laura (Tim Kolzow) McNeece, and Bill Horn; and cousin and uncle of many.
John and his family moved to Lombard from LeSueur, MN when he was nine. He will be remembered for his witty sense of humor, problem-solving skills, integrity, and his faith. He had a strong love for kayaking, especially on his favorite creek in Michigan, accompanied with an occasional cigar. He enjoyed fixing things, and exploring the many eras of technology, which led him to his career of network administrator at Woodridge School District. He often watched NCIS, was fond of cooking, liked playing euchre and loved listening to many genres of music. He was a tremendous husband and father who often stated to his kids to be ‘kindly affectionate.’ He always thought of others and loved to share his stories with those that were lucky enough to hear them. John will be dearly missed by so many.
