Remembering Bill Horne, ELCA Vice-President and Florida-Bahamas Synod Vice-President
Our ELCA Vice-President was a quietly accomplished, reliably upbeat, and effortlessly friendly man named Bill Horne. At one of our Synod Assemblies, his family occupied the hotel room next to mine. He'd greet me when we passed in the hallway, and always have a smile on his face when I'd see him. I knew his face because he frequented Synod gatherings, but I only gradually learned of his background, his history, and his job as Clearwater City Manager. I remember thinking how blessed that city was to have someone as well-suited as Bill to be handling those delicate interactions with the local Scientologists.
I've included some articles about Bill below, as well as information about his funeral service. Our prayers and blessings go out to Bill's family, and our thanks to God for giving our Church such a wise and encouraging lay leader.
The Memorial Service for Bill Horne will be this Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 11:00am at Calvary Church in Clearwater, Florida.
