Greg started working as a truck/delivery driver at the age of 18. Greg also enjoyed working for the Dallas Cowboys as a Security Supervisor for 28 years until Texas Stadium closed in 2008. For a period, Greg worked as a special education paraprofessional while coaching football, basketball and track. This work afforded Greg the opportunity, which he loved, to work with students and young athletes, whom over the years brought him another level of joy and accomplishment. Greg was a skilled umpire for baseball and his real love, fast pitch softball. Greg enjoyed umpiring for many years as both a profession and a passion. Greg continued umpiring until this past February.
In 1995, Greg and Paula Summers were married at Coyote Hills, west of Cheyenne, Ok. Throughout their marriage they shared many adventures and created wonderful memories with their daughters and grandchildren. Greg’s family was the joy of his life. Greg’s favorite athletes to coach were his daughters and his granddaughters. Greg’s most fond memories were coaching girls’ softball with his daughter, Summer Loree. Many did not know Greg’s skill for operating a bar-b-que grill, but Greg loved family gatherings and was ceremoniously named “grill master” for these fun family events.
Greg was preceded in death by his grandparents, William Leonard and Lorene Horn, Annie Conn, his mother Barbara Horn, his stepmother, Jackie Horn, his mother-in-law, Loree Summers and his infant daughter, Taylor Rae Horn.
Greg is survived by his wife Paula and daughter Summer Loree of Oklahoma City, his daughter, Meghan Allison and her husband Aaron, grandchildren Hannah Rene, Lyndsay Marie, and Brennen. Greg is also survived by his father, Robert Horn of Lancaster, Texas, sister Sharon and brother-in-law Russell Coe of Arlington, Texas, father-in-law Melvin Summers of Newcastle, Ok, sister-in-law Pamela and her husband Kenny Sylvester of Newcastle, Ok, and brother-in-law Marty Summers and his wife Stephanie of Oklahoma City.
