Peter Jeffrey "Jeff" Horn
1962-2012
Peter Jeffrey “Jeff” Horn- 49, of Marriott’s Cove, Lunenburg County passed away on Monday, July 23, 2012 the result of a snorkelling accident.
Born in Lunenburg on July 24, 1962, Jeff was the beloved son of the late Dora Horn and of Peter Horn, loving father to Mitchell and Katie, best friend and light in a storm to his sister Nita (Chris Plummer).
Jeff spent his growing up years in the Mahone Bay/Oakland area where he developed and fine-tuned his love for adventure. A graduate of the Institute of Technology, Jeff began his career working for NAV Canada, then Transport Canada, and found himself in Resolute Bay, Nunavut for a year where he broke up his days snowmobiling and chasing polar bears. Coming back to Nova Scotia he settled in Halifax. Over the next years Jeff would see himself renovating and building homes for his family with the help of his father. In his early thirties Jeff fought a terrible battle with cancer and despite the odds he won. His will to live and see his children grow up saw him through the battle of his life. Jeff was a “jack-of-all-trades” and truly a master of all of them. He was an adept mechanic and for a space of time had a part-time used car business. His love of the water and sailing was ever present as he toured around the waters of Lunenburg County on his own pleasure boat and crewed on Scotch Mist. His eye for detail and composition shone through in his photography and woodworking projects. Jeff had a love of motorcycles. He developed his confidence early on as a young boy on a dirt bike in a gravel pit behind his childhood home. So, it would naturally follow that his son would take up the sport. He so enjoyed exploring the motor-cross race tracks of the Maritimes with Mitch and following the horse riding circuit with daughter Katie gave him great pride and happiness. Jeff will be sorely missed by all of those whose life he touched. A sincere thank you to all of you who participated in the search for Jeff and to those who have expressed their condolences over the last few difficult days. Your love has meant a great deal to us.
There will be a gathering on Wednesday, August 8th at the Lunenburg Yacht Club on Herman’s Island between 6 and 8pm to remember and celebrate Jeff’s life.
In Jeff’s memory donations may be made to SHAID Tree Animal Shelter or the Cancer Society.
