William Barron Horton

William Barron Horton, of West Columbia, SC, passed away on November 24, 2021. Born on October 10, 1955 in Columbia, SC to Robert A. and Katie Clark Horton, he was the youngest of four children.

After he graduated from Irmo High School, William went to work for Honda. Known for his love of anything automotive, he also worked for Jim Moore as a service advisor, as well as Rhino Linings.

Thirteen years ago, he found AA and became an ardent supporter and member. Thru his sponsors, AA helped him re-find himself. He truly loved helping others with their struggles. It became a large part of his life and we, his family, got our sweet, fun loving brother back.

Barron is survived by his siblings, Dianne Risher (Thomas) of Hilton Head SC, Donna Brown (Pete) of Wilmington, NC, and Robert A. Horton, Jr (Donna) of Greer SC; as well as his beloved nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews who so loved their “Uncle Barney”.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, April 9, 2022 at Thompson Funeral Home of Lexington. A visitation will take place prior to the service, beginning at 1:00pm.
