Life Story / Obituary


Richard Horne passed away on August 14, 2020 and has joined his soul mate in Heaven. Richard traveled the world working for Harrison and Harrison Inc. a Pipe Organ Company based in England. That is what brought him to the United States and where he met his wife Janet (passed in 2018) . They spent 29 years together and enjoyed visiting family in England and New Mexico and vacationing in Hawaii. Richard was a wood worker at heart and created beautiful pieces of furniture and delicate art pieces such as jewelry boxes. He will be missed by his family in England, Daughter Nicola Barker (grandaughter Charlotte), Daughter Alison (Nigel) Metheringham (grandaughters Bethany and Grace), and Family in the states, Step son Colin DeRidder, and Step daughter Jenine (Josh) Elzinga (Grandaughters Morgan and Sara). A private family gathering will be held for immediate family. We would like to thank the friends and family for their support, prayer and for sharing special memories. In lieu of flowers, we would encourage a donation to be made to Hospice of Holland or Resthaven Maplewoods.
