MarkHorton Memorial graphic 1 




Memorial Services are scheduled for
Saturday February 18th at 10 am 
at Elyria Catholic High School
725 Gulf Rd. Elyria Ohio

Parking for uniformed fire fighters and general public will be in the lot across from 463 Poplar St.
Those attending should plan on being seated prior to 930 am.

A procession of Fire Apparatus will follow Secretary/Treasurer Horton from Elyria Catholic High School to a private family burial ceremony.


It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news that OAPFF Secretary Treasurer Mark Horton has passed away. Mark was tragically killed in an auto accident on his way to an IAFF Training Seminar this afternoon.

Mark was a tireless advocate for our profession. His leadership was essential as we fought some of the biggest battles our organization has ever faced. Senate Bill 5, pension protection, and cancer presumption are just some of the victories that we accomplished during Mark's tenure as Secretary/Treasurer. More than that, Mark was my friend whose counsel I valued.

Please keep Mark, his wife Barbara, and all of those affected by his untimely passing in your thoughts and prayers.

Rest easy Brother, we've got it from here.

In Solidarity.

Michael P. Taylor
OAPFF President

When I am called to duty, God,

wherever flames may rage,

give me strength to save a life,

whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child

before it is too late,

or save an older person from

the horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert,

to hear the weakest shout

and quickly and efficiently

to put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling,

to give the best in me,

to guard my friend and neighbor,

and protect his property.

And if according to Your will

I must answer death’s call,

bless with your protecting hand,

my family one and all.
