LES HORN 1925 - 2012 Suddenly on June 26, 2012, Les Horn passed away peacefully with his family by his side. Les was respected and loved by everyone who knew him and will always be remembered by his children Rick Horne, Linda (Brian) Gray, Susan (Dan) Hagen, and Bryan Horn; his grandchildren Scott, Sean, Jennifer, Sarah, Jessica, Michael, and Kirsten; his great-grandchildren Kayden, Dylan, Alex, and Taylor; as well as his sister Lillian Kay and family, and many friends. Les was predeceased by his beloved wife Edna Horn (nee Traves) in 2005. Born in Hull, England, he served with the Royal Air Force during the Second World War and met Edna while stationed in Australia. Later they reunited in England where they were married and Les joined the Hull Police Department. They moved to Winnipeg in 1954 where Les had a distinguished career with the Winnipeg Police Department until he retired in 1985, rising to the rank of Sergeant. He and Edna spent many years wintering in Texas where they had many wonderful friends. In recent years, Les joined the High Steppers Club and made many new friends, whom he looked forward to spending time with every Thursday. A small family service will be held on Thursday, July 5, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate his life. Interment will take place with Edna at Glenlawn Memorial Gardens, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd. along with a private family ceremony.
