Obituary for John "Jack" Horschel

John "Jack"  Horschel
Jack was born in Ironton, Ohio on March 14, 1924 to Henry Horschel and Hallie Thornton. He moved to Fellsmere, FL when he was three. He lived in Florida most of his life.

Jack and Kathryn (Kuhr) married in 1945 and had 8 children; Johnny (Robyn), Ernestine Ellington (Robert ), Hallie Laneuville (Hank ), Joey (Rebecca) Billy (Kathy), Paul (Tamara), Priscilla Allen (Tom) and Mary Pat Green (Thomas). These children have done very well for themselves, a great sign that Jack was not only a loving father, but very supportive parent to them in whatever endeavor they attempted. He is the grandfather of 20 children and the greatgrandfather of 33. He and Kathryn started quite a dynasty!

After Kathryn died in 1999, Jack knew what he wanted, and went after it. He wanted Ann and pursued her until she accepted. They were married August 5, 2000 and traveled all over, most times with Nahtalia, in the 15.5 years they were married. They have been to the Panama Canal, Aruba, Grand Cayman, Belize as well as all over the United States. Their last trip was to Oregon in October 2015 for the wedding of Jack’s youngest granddaughter, Denise Green. Jack was a wonderful male role model to not only his children, but to his stepchildren, Elaina Stratton, and Chris Stratton, and Elaina’s daughter, Nahtalia Stratton.
