Noah Horton, age 36, passed away on Wednesday, March 24th. Noah would hate it if we wasted a bunch of words babbling on about how great he was. Well too bad, Noah. Guess you should have written your own obituary. Noah moved to Maryville as a teenager, but he was from Loveland, Ohio, and proud of it. For someone who claimed to hate people, he was better at loving them than most. He was a beloved son, grandson, big brother, son-in-law, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin, nephew, friend, husband, and most of all, a devoted father. The best days of his life were spent with his son, Draven, hiking and admiring the incredible young man he helped to raise. The joys in Noah’s life were simple things. All who love him only wish he’d had more time to enjoy them. Noah is survived by his son: Draven Blaine Kyle-Horton, brother: Gabriel J. Horton, parents: Sharon R. Barnett and Mitchel D. Horton, and grandparents: Margaret H. Barnett, C. Edward Barnett, Jr. and Dixie Barnett and wife: Kandice Kyle. He is predeceased by his grandparents: Jaquelin C. Walker and William W. Horton. A Celebration of Life will be held at Grandview Pavilion, 2316 Graves Rd, Maryville, TN 37803 on Saturday, April 3rd at 3:00 p.m. The family will receive friends at 2:30. Guests are asked to observe Covid precautions (mask and social distancing). In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations in his memory to McNabb Center, to support the mental health of young people in Blount County.
