Rick (Ricky) Lee Horton

April 13, 1952 — July 30, 2023

Rick (Ricky) Lee Horton, age 71, passed away Sunday, July 30, 2023 in Omaha, Nebraska. He was born April 13, 1952, and was the son of the late Robert (Paula) Horton and Joyce (Fluke) Horton. He graduated from Osceola High School. Later in life, he attended Iowa Western Community College and received an Associate’s Degree.

Rick was united in marriage to Sharon Rust. To this union, they were blessed with six children. They made their home in Treynor. Rick was highly involved in community youth events; umpiring and coaching baseball with his children was a favorite pastime.

He had a strong love for meteorology, weather, and all things in the sky. Many friends and family referred to him as Radar Rick and Papa Fix ‘it. Rick owned/operated Home & Acres in Treynor for over 25 years. When he wasn’t working, you would find Rick cruising around Treynor, getting ice cream with his dog Maggie, or spending time with his grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents and wife, Sharon Horton. He is survived by his children: Autumn Horton (Cheryl); Justin Horton (Kris); Moriah Bees (Dylan); Alyssa Horton (Mark); Nigel Horton (Rachel); Erin Horton (Liz); 12 grandchildren; sister, Vicky Horton; brother, Darren Horton; a host of other relatives and friends.

Visitation with the family will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. with a prayer service to follow on Thursday, August 3, 2023 at the Zion Congregational Church in Treynor.
