Michael Steven Horton, Sr

September 4, 1959 — December 23, 2023

Michael Steven Horton, Sr., a loving husband, father, sibling and friend, passed away on December 23, 2023. He was born on September 4, 1959, and leaves behind a legacy of laughter, kindness, and unconditional love.

Michael was a devoted family man who cherished every moment he spent with his loved ones. He was always willing to go above and beyond for his family. His warm heart and selflessness knew no bounds when it came to ensuring the happiness and welfare of his family.

Michael was a man whose heart overflowed with compassion and faith in Jesus. Above all else, Michael's faith in Jesus Christ guided him throughout his life. It was this passion that fueled his every action and inspired those around him to live with purpose. He immersed himself in the teachings of Christ, finding strength in prayer.

With a great sense of humor that could brighten anyone's day, Michael brought joy to the lives of everyone he encountered. His infectious laughter created an atmosphere of happiness wherever he went. His witty jokes and clever remarks will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

In addition to being a family man, Michael had a deep passion for outdoor activities. He adored playing baseball and watching his kids play as well. The mountains held a special place in his heart; he found solace in their majestic beauty with Yami by his side.              

Michael leaves behind a deep void in the hearts of his loved ones who will forever cherish his memory. He is survived by his beloved wife Yami Umana, whose support provided strength throughout their journey together.  Michael is also survived by his four children who will forever carry his love in their hearts: Michelle Ramirez, Michael Horton Jr., Sasha Bent-Trinder, and Christina Hernandez. Their lives have been touched profoundly by their father's loving support, guidance, and unconditional love. Their love and admiration for their father will forever remain in their hearts as a constant reminder of the extraordinary bond they shared.

Michael's passing is mourned by his mother Jacqueline Horton and siblings Roger Horton, Gary Horton, Pamela Allen, and Suzanne Dyer. The memories they created together will forever be cherished and treasured.
