David Wallace Horne + Enlarge

David Wallace Horne was born October 4, 1949 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Phyllis Jean and John Nelson Horne.  He passed away suddenly on August 4, 2017 at the age of 67 at Saint Marks Hospital of heart failure.

David grew up in the Sugarhouse area.  He attended Highland High School and graduated in 1968. He later attended the University of Utah and Steven Henager Business College.

David married Sandra Ingman at Lake Tahoe, Nevada on Feb 14, 1970 in a beautiful winter setting.  They were blessed with three wonderful children.

He is survived by his children, Lisa Jean Bateman (Brandon), Lesli Ann Greenhalgh (Douglas) and David Justin Horne; 11 grandchildren, step grandchildren, and one great grandchild.  David is preceded in death by his little sister Heather Horne and mother Phyllis Jean Horne.

David was a quiet, gentle person as a child.  He was an Eagle Scout and a member of the LDS church.  David overcame a life-threatening kidney disease in his youth which he endured along with his brother Chris who was one year younger than David.  They went through the crisis together with courage.  David is survived by his father John Nelson Horne, his older brother John Douglas Horne, younger brothers Robert Kevin Horne and Thomas Michael Horne.

David's young adult life was adventurous.  David moved his young family to Wyoming and began to build A-Frame mountain homes.  He was a hard worker and enjoyed his young children.  He found himself building a home for his own little family.  Wyoming winters were hard and the family remained in Wyoming for four years until the oil fields dried up and the housing market dropped.  

David then moved back to Utah where he and his wife, Sandra, managed a number of large apartment complexes for several years.  He then began his own successful garage business.

Several years later he married Romona Lee Timm with her 3 children.  She was a good friend and stepmom to David's children.

David recently retired from his business and began to spend quality time with his grandchildren and his wonderful great granddaughter Mollie, the apple of his eye.  He began to enjoy more time with his family on trips to Lake Powell and family gatherings.  He loved attending the grandkids games and just being a grandpa - it was his greatest joy.

David will be missed by all who knew and love him.

The family would like to personally thank Braydon Odette, the ambulance response and St. Marks Hospital staff.  Special thanks to his many friends at Fellowship Hall.  We, the family, are truly grateful for your support and love towards him.  

Funeral services for David will be held on Wednesday August 9,2017 at 11:00am at the LDS Chapel, 739 Ashton Avenue in Salt Lake City.  Friends may call upon the family one hour prior to the services.  Internment to follow at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park, 3401 South Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah.
