Horn, age 55 who passed away peacefully on October 3, 2021, at Lake Ridge Care Center in Buffalo, MN after a courageous 3-year battle with cancer. Visitation will be two hours prior to the services at the church.

John was born January 12, 1966, in Paynesville to John and Mary Ann (Eiynck) Horn.

John worked as a Chef for 25 years at the St. Cloud Hospital. His most recent employment was at Good Shepherd Nursing Home.

He served as a Eucharistic Minister, Sacristan/Acolyte, served on the parish council, taught Faith Formation and was a Chef for community meals at St. Peter’s Church. John was also an active member of Communion and Liberation.

John also played an important role in his nieces and nephews lives, especially helping Austin discover his strengths. When babysitting he enjoyed watching movies and baking cookies. At Christmas time, he enjoyed making tie blankets for them. His passions were baking, cooking, playing cribbage, going to Summertime by George, dog sitting and was an avid Vikings fan.

He is proceeded in death by his Father, John F. Horn; infant niece, McKenzie Horn; Godfather, Eugene Eiynck; Grandparents, aunt, and uncles.
