Obituary

Roosevelt Horton, the last of 10 children, born to James and Sarah Horton on December 8, 1933 in Marion Junction, Alabama.  He was a loving and devoted family man who believed in hard work.  One of his greatest joys was  working with his hands to build and create.  He enjoyed spending time with his family and loved connecting with friends when possible.  Being an exceptional conversationalist, he could often be found in retirement sharing words of wisdom and encouraging others.  Later in life, after completely surrendering his life to Christ, he answered God 's call to "tell the weak ones about him!"

He was preceded in death by his father and mother, James and Sarah Horton; 9 siblings, Ernest Horton, Robert Horton, Anna Horton, Willie Horton, James Horton, renzy Horton, Anna Horton, Lorene Baldwin, Sarah Lee Adams and Geneva Harrell; son Eldred Leroy Horton, father-in-law, Frank Hall; mother-in-law Alice Hall, 9 brothers-in-law Henry Williams; Roman Hall, Robert Hall, Leroy Hall, Willie James Hall, Leon Hall, Will Smith, J.C. Miles and Thomas Wells; and 4 sisters-in-law Zilpha  Williams, Margurite  Miles, Mary Frances Smith and Irene Hall.

He leaves to cherish his many beautiful memories, a loving and devoted wife, Susie Mae Horton; 2 sons, Roosevelt Horton, Jr., Sweetwater, AL and Martin (Sharon) Horton of Ewa  Beach, Hawaii; 6 daughters, Rosie Jean 9Charles) James, Mobile, AL; Rosetta Horton, Pensacola, FL; Mary Priscilla Horton, Seattle Washington; Susan Horton, Sarah Horton and Marie Horton all of Prattville, AL; 13 Grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; 3 brother-in-laws, Frank (Rose) Hall of Montgomery, AL, Lorenzo (Rebecca Hall of Prattville, AL and Michael Hall of Wooster, Ohio; sisters-in-law, Clara (Jimmy) Julius and Alberta Wells and Valeria Hall of Prattville, AL; Blanche Hall, Millbrook, AL, Luthinia  Hall; Autaugaville, AL; host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
