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!"
