Though we are feeling the loss of Lou Hornbeck, a beloved Father, Grandfather, and Great-Grandfather, we are thankful the Lord has allowed him to live a long and full life. One thing I know for certain is that he loved action! One of his favorite jobs was being a referee. He wanted to be in the middle of the fun and truly enjoyed sports (some of you have probably shared a round of golf with him- that was one of his favorites!). He also used to travel around on a motorcycle, and he spent several years enjoying traveling across the United States via a motorhome, visiting family on the way. He enjoyed adventure, and he has taken his final journey into the arms of Christ where he is whole and healed in every way. With renewed strength, he can worship his Savior whom he rededicated his life to back in December of 2020 when he was baptized before his family members. He has left behind a wonderful legacy of his 4 children, his grandchildren, and his great-grandchildren! Many don't have the privilege of getting to meet and spend time with their great-grandchildren, but Lou was strong in mind and body for the vast majority of his life. We have been so grateful to have him around for many years. Although his last years were more difficult as he was losing his strength, we look back with fondness at the memories of his beautiful smile that could light up a room, his laughter when he was particularly tickled by something funny, and the way he used to call everyone "kid" (I can hear his voice now- "Hey, kid! How are ya?"). Lou never knew a stranger and could make friends in any random place with any random person- this outgoing nature is a trait he has passed down to his family members for sure! He will be missed, always loved, and never forgotten.
