Obituary of Terence Van Horn

Terence “Ted” Van Horn, a Veteran of the US Army Reserves, passed away on March 28, 2022, after suffering an extremely aggressive form of Lung and Liver Cancer. He spent the last moments of his life with his soulmate, Janet. He was 61 years old.

Ted was also known as the “Gentle Giant,” with a heart just as big as he was. He would not hesitate to help anyone in need, in fact, he would go out of his way to lend a helping hand. He will always be remembered for his good-natured soul. He was a man that believed in fixing things rather than replacing them. He loved his trucks and spent much of his life as a truck driver. He loved his family limitlessly, and always did what he could to support, guide, and be there for them. He worked tirelessly, left a positive impact on those around him, and will surely be missed.

He is survived by his devoted wife Janet; his loving children Stephanie, married to David; Trudie; Terence Jr., married to Melissa; his beautiful grandchildren Noah; Keelia; Ciaran; Ryan; Emily; Bentley; Ryker; Jaxon; his siblings- Rena McAdam; Susan Smith; Christine Holley; Benjamin, married to Laura Lee; David, married to Peggy. He was predeceased by his grandson Aiden Jay; father, Benjamin James; mother Gertrude Anna (Skellenger) Van Horn; as well as his sisters Roseanna; Dolores Anne; Bernice Marie Sides.
