Obituary for Andrew David Horne

Andrew David Horne, 78, passed away on December 3, 2017. He was born in Clinton, MA, to the late Andrew D and Theresa (Hallinan) Horne and then moved to Concord, MA. He was a gifted football, basketball and baseball player in high school. He joined the AirForce to see the world, but spent four years in Springfield, MA.

David came to Vermont in his early twenties to be closer to the mountains he loved to ski. Settling first in the Killington area, he lived the life of a "ski bum"; bartending nights and hitting the slopes daily. He recalled with reverence an incident he experienced early one blue sky winter morning as he paused on an overlook trail at Killington. Gazing at the incredible vista, he said he felt his heart would burst with joy and that "the hand of God" was upon him. He knew Vermont would be home forever.

Eventually Dave migrated north to Burlington and worked for a time at the hospital and at IBM, but his love of people always drew him back to bartending. He worked initially at the Burlington Country Club, but eventually signed on at the Burlington Elks Lodge where he was beloved as the bar steward for thirty years.

Skiing and golf were life long interests he pursued and enjoyed, although with more skill in the former than the latter. Sunday tee times and epic annual golf trips with "the boys"to the Cape and New York were traditions for years.

Although he never married, he adored the ladies and always maintained that women were stronger and smarter than men. Dave was very proud to have been instrumental in working behind the scenes to insure that women be allowed membership in the club.

David was Irish to the core, very proud of it, and loved his trips back to the old sod. Possessing the heart of a poet, he was a dreamer. As such, there is the book he never wrote, the bike he didn't ride, and other unfinished projects.

What does remain are the people he touched with his kindness and generosity as a fiercely loyal friend. May the road rise up to meet you friend, and the wind be at your back.

Left to cherish his memory are his sister Andrea Sargent and her husband Robert, nephews Stephen and Matthew Messier, niece Ellen and partner Lisa Skyler, grand nephews Collin and Owen Messier, extended family and countless friends.

Visitation will be held from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM Monday December 11, 2017 at LaVigne Funeral Home and Cremation Service, 132 Main St., Winooski, VT 05404. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on 11:00 AM Tuesday December 12, 2017 at St. John Vianney Catholic Church, 160 Hinesburg Rd, South Burlington, VT 05403. Burial will follow at Resurrection Park Cemetery. Condolences may be shared at www.lavignefuneralhome.com.
