DONALD F. HORTON
WAYNE – Donald F. Horton, 55 years old of Wayne, NY passed away with friends and family surrounding him at home on Tuesday (May 30, 2023) after a long battle.
Donald was predeceased by his father, Francis Horton and mother, Laura MacIntire. Donald is survived by stepmother, Joan Horton; daughter, Brittany Morgan; granddaughters, Briar and Blake; his dog, Oakley; three sisters, Tina Stanton, Dana McLoud, Holly Harvey; stepsisters, Tonya Niland, Sonja Conover and Lucy Clingerman; as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Donald retired as a Sergeant after dedicating 28 years to the New York State Department of Corrections. Following his retirement, he continued to serve the Department of Corrections with the Steuben County Sheriff Department. For 41 years Donny devoted himself to the Wayne Fire Department as an active firefighter, EMT and Commissioner. Donald was continually helping others and never expected anything in return, even in the toughest times. Donny’s courage and spirit live on as we echo his words, “push on, push thru.” We ask that you remember him doing what he loved, spending time on Keuka Lake surrounded by his beloved friends, family and Oakley.
Services will be on Saturday, (June 10, 2023) at the Bishop & DeSanto Funeral Home, 35 Main St., in HAMMONDSPORT, NY. Calling hours will be 10 am-12 pm, with a funeral service at 12 pm. Fireman services will follow at the Wayne Cemetery. Following the Fireman Service there will be a celebration of life at the Wayne Fire Department.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Wayne Fire Department, PO Box 91, Wayne, NY 14893.
The Bishop & DeSanto Funeral Home is honored to assist Donny’s family with the arrangements.
