He was born December 30, 1965 in Ironton, Ohio to Larry and Carolyn Kay Waddell Horn. He joined the Coast Guard in 1987 and served active duty from 1987-1991. While on active duty, he was a member of the Presidential Honor Guard, Color Guard and Drill Team. MCPO Horn joined the Coast Guard Reserve and was a senior enlisted Reserve member at MSU Paducah. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Physical Therapy Program at Volunteer State Community College and had a career in Physical Therapy for the past 20 years. An avid Titans fan and Bigfoot enthusiast, he loved spending time with his family as well as watching his children play sports. He also served as past Commander of American Legion Post 206 in White House and was a member of White House First Baptist Church. BMCS Douglas Gibson offered the following thoughts about his shipmate, "Dave was a great man, a great Coastie. He was a proud father and husband keeping them (his family) in his thoughts when he was away. He loved the job. I think back to all the underway experiences we shared. Nothing could rattle Dave. He was very professional, very structured, got the job done with style. He rose through the ranks quickly because he was thorough and he knew his job well. I'll never forget his sharpness and his crisp detailed uniform. He really was an exceptional man." MCPO Horne is survived by his wife, Michele Horn; daughters, Margaret and Mally Horn; step-children, Caleb Johnson, Jacob Johnson and Abigale Johnson; father; Larry Horn, Brother, Chris (Sherry) Horn, all of White House, sisters, Lisa Smallwood, also of White House, and Jennifer (Josh) Huhnke, Cocoa Beach, Fla. �
