Richard C. Horan, 57 years old of Downingtown, PA passed away peacefully on Saturday January 14, 2023 at Paoli Hospital in Paoli.
He was the loving husband and best friend of Laurie Lee Hillier Horan.
Born December 13, 1965 in Scranton, PA he was the son of the late James Garvey Horan Jr. and the late Patricia Ann Hemenway Horan.
Richard grew up in Westtown and attended Henderson High School. He graduated from the University of Maryland with a bachelor’s degree in History.
He worked as a Commercial Appraiser for Chester County for over 20 years.
Rich was a master of trivia and a history buff who read voraciously. He enjoyed indoor gardening, fishing in Pinehurst North Carolina, astronomy, and watching Philadelphia sports teams. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of rock music and was always ready with an obscure factoid. Rich’s family and friends loved his sly sense of humor and his funny, unexpected observations. He was quiet and reserved, but always ready to lend a hand to anyone who needed it.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by his sister, Victoria (Donn Roberts) Horan and brother, James (Meredith) Horan III.
Services and Interment will be private.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Brandywine Valley SPCA
