"Timothy (Tim) Bruce Horner, at the age of 69, put a glide in his stride, a dip in his hip and was escorted to the Mothership by Star Child and Dr. Funkenstein on the 14th day of December in the year 2021. We can now confirm that there is indeed funk after death and Tim has improved his interplanetary funksmanship.
Well alright, now back down to earth… Tim was born October 17th, 1952, to parents Barbara Jean Brand and Frank Burke Horner in Neptune, NJ. He has lived in Myrtle Beach, SC for the last 40 years and was an independent roofing contractor for most of that time. He got up early and worked hard to make it to Downwind Sails beach in the afternoon for his daily surf sessions. Tim was a frequent flyer at Sounds Familiar record shop, an avid collector of music and a connoisseur of all things funky and groovy. He was always proud to have the greenest lawn on the block and a towering sycamore tree that he parked his ’89 red Dodge Ram under. His conversations and opinions were always passionate and animated by “Tim-isms”. He loved and cared for many dogs in his life and surely has a pack of Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds awaiting him at the pearly gates. Tim spent his final days watching the animal planet and listening to music with his daughter by his side at Grand Strand Medical Center.
He is survived by his daughter Caitlin Marie Horner, brother Kenneth Michael Horner, sister Kathryn Leigh Horner Somers, nephew James Franklin Somers, and niece Kelsey Alexandra Horner.
Tim has been described as a legend by friends, so may his legacy and energy live on in us, in the waves of the ocean, and in every record that spins."
Mr. Horner is entrusted to the care of Lewis Crematory & Funeral Services of Myrtle Beach, SC.
