Obituary for Dwayne Horton

Dwayne Horton, 52, of Wake Forest, NC passed away on December 14, 2019. He was born on November 10, 1967 to Leeman Horton and the late Esther Mae Horton.

Dwayne graduated from Wake Forest-Rolesville High School in 1986. He attended Chowan University for two years, and then enlisted in the United States Navy. He served his country for eight years and received an honorable discharge.

Dwayne joined the Apostle’s Doctrine Holy Church of Christ in Garner, NC in 1998, where he served as an ordained Deacon and Sunday School Teacher.

Dwayne was employed at Schrader Bellows (Parker Hannifin in Wake Forest, NC) as a CNC Machinist for eight years. He later pursued and was successful in being self-employed with his trucking company named E. M. Horton Trucking in 2002 and remained until his passing.

Dwayne was an UNC Tar Heels fan. He always kept UNC paraphernalia close by and would often let you know who was the king of basketball.
