Kenny lived his whole life in Plymouth, Ind. In addition to proudly serving his country, he was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He will be missed by them all.

Born in Plymouth on January 12, 1930, Kenny was the son of Ivan and Hazel Holmes Horn. He graduated from Plymouth High School with the class of 1948 and from Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C., in 1952.

After his retirement, he stayed active in a number of organizations.

He was a lifetime member of VFW Marshall County Post 1162 and for many years he served on the Honor Guard giving tribute to fallen comrades. He also was a member of the Eagles, the Moose and the American Legion Post #27.

He served as Post Commander of Plymouth’s VFW organization from 1996 to 2003. During this time, he would volunteer and cook lunches for the members, something he continued up until the last two months when he became ill.
