Bradley Otis Hor­ton


Bradley Otis Hor­ton, 65, passed away Tues­day, Au­gust 16, of can­cer. He was sur­rounded by his fam­ily, and his love for them was as ob­vi­ous as was their de­vo­tion to him.

He was born Fe­bru­ary 27, 1951, to Ted and Bil­lie (John­son) Hor­ton. He learned the value of hard work at an early age, work­ing along­side his broth­ers thinning onions and work­ing in the or­chards near his Payson home. This work ethic fol­lowed him through his life. He was an iron worker by trade and es­pe­cially en­joyed the friends made along the way.

To say Otis was an avid hunter and fish­er­man would be an un­der­state­ment. Next to spend­ing time with his fam­ily, hunt­ing and fish­ing were his fa­vorite things. He would rather be in his boat on Yuba or in a goose hole than al­most any­where else on earth. His skill at such was the stuff of leg­ends, and many lives were touched as he shared his love and skill as a fish­er­man and hunter.

Otis had a kind heart and was loved by all who knew him. He was a tease, but un­der the leg­endary beard beat the kin­d­est, most gen­tle heart you will ever find.

The true light of his life and his proud­est ac­com­plish­ment was his fam­ily. He en­joyed them and each knew and felt of his deep love for them. His chil­dren and grand­chil­dren were his great­est source of joy. They can each take com­fort in know­ing that the time spent with him, even in his last days here, will be cher­ished for­ever.

He was wel­comed on the other side by his par­ents who pre­ceded him. He will be greatly missed by his sur­viv­ing chil­dren: Anna (Rick) Steele, Brooke (Corey) Hor­ton-Young, Carly Cruiser, and Tyson Hor­ton (Kris­ten Mem­mott); his grand­chil­dren: Madye, Braedy, Shaylee, Gavin, Rai­dyn and Am­berly; his sib­lings: Chris (Karla) Hor­ton, Patsy (Den­nis) Wall, Kirk Hor­ton, and Karri (Jay) Best; as well as nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews.

The fam­ily would like to thank Lori and Bai­ley from Park­way Health and Patty and Col­lette from Sun­rise Hospice for the ex­cel­lent care and com­pas­sion shown to Otis as well as his fam­ily.

Ser­vices were held Satur­day, Au­gust 20, at 11:30 am at the Park 14th LDS Ward in Payson. In­ter­ment was in the Payson City Ceme­tery un­der the di­rec­tion of Brown Fam­ily Mor­tu­ary, San­taquin.
