David Eric Horton

David Eric Horton, of Cullman, Alabama, passed away on February 11, 2022, at the age of 52. He was born April 11, 1969, in Cullman County, Alabama, to Millard Eldredge and Jacqueline Freeman Horton.

Eric was a member of Pleasant View Baptist Church, in Holly Pond, where four generations of the Horton family worship their Savior together every Sunday morning. Mr. Horton was an automotive machinist. He owned his own business and he enjoyed getting to work in an industry that he was passionate about. Eric was a fun loving and joyful man. He was always teasing, joking, or playing. Eric enjoyed God’s blessing of laughter and humor and he found joy in laughing with those he loved. Eric was always doing for others. He was a giving and loving man, and his heart was that of a servant of Christ. Eric’s love and adoration for his family was evident. He adored his wife, his Tara Ann, and his heart belonged to his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as well. Eric was also a loving son, brother, and brother-in-law. While our hearts are broken, we also rejoice in knowing that Eric is home with the Father and we are grateful for the blessing Eric has been to so many of us. 

Eric was welcomed into heaven by his father, Millard Horton, and his grandparents, Art and Gracie Horton.

Eric is survived by his wife, Tara Ann Horton; sons, Eren Horton, Ross and Maggie Bailey, Jacob and Hannah Bailey; daughters, Ashley and Chris Ralph, Kelly Horton Hall; grandchildren, Vera Hall, Valyn Hall, Drew Ralph, Adora Ralph; great-grandchildren, Cora, Maliah, Riley, Selah, Kabri, and Paxton; mother, Jackie Horton; brother, Kevin and Lisa Horton; sister, Kathy and Jerome Kilgo; nephews, Grant and Samantha Banks, Kade Horton, Kohl Horton; great-nieces, Kaylee Banks, and Alyssa Banks; uncle, Jerry Freeman; and his dog, Ratchet.
