Austin Cooper Horn of Boca Raton, Fla, died on Nov. 17, 2021.
With a heavy heart we share the sad news of Austin’s sudden passing. He was born May 12, 1998 in Mocksville, but lived for many years in Concord. Austin graduated from Cox Mill High School and attended UNCC.
Austin liked to live life big. He loved traveling, golf, all types of surfing, snow skiing, cars, and doing things with the people he loved. Austin’s soul was caring and his love for his brother and sister was earnest. He stuck up for what he believed, with strong opinions. Austin had a passion and desire for learning on a multitude of topics and interest. By living life on his terms, he showed us how to be bold and compassionate.
He was taken from us way too early, and we will forever be saddened, but the memories he left behind for us will last us a lifetime. Austin is now being held firmly in the loving arms of his Lord as he waits for his family and friends to see him once again.
He is predeceased by his grandmother, Dorothy Morris Horn.
Survivors: his mother, April Peterson (Jim); his father, Henry Horn (Lisa); siblings, Michael and Caitlin; stepsiblings, Faith and Rachel, and Travin, Margo, and Ellie; his grandparents, Claude R. Horn Jr., and Linda and Larry Fink; uncles, Robbie Barbour and Morris Horn; and numerous other family members.
A celebration of life has been held.
