Dallas Horn of Chandler, AZ died on November 1, 2020 at the age of 83. Dallas was born in Huntington, West Virginia. His beloved wife of 34 years, Barbara J. Horn, survived him by only 2 days. They were two peas in a pod and could not imagine being without each other. Two souls but one spirit, they are together now forever. The relatives Dallas leaves behind include sons David N. Horn and Daniel M. Horn, stepdaughter Cindy L. Ruiz, granddaughters Quinne B. Shirey, Dallas J. Horn, Olivia N. Ruiz and Vanessa R. Ruiz, grandsons Sean B. Horn, and Robert Ritchey, great granddaughter Riley A. Horn and great grandson Leviathan P. Last-Horn. Also, two sisters, Dorothy Nelson, and Virginia B. Sullivan and two brothers, Thomas E. Bundy, and Roger W. Bundy. Dallas was a veteran, serving his country in the US Air Force. He moved to Phoenix in 1959 and went to work for AiResearch (which eventually became Honeywell) as a Quality Assurance Manager and retired in 1989. He loved sports, fishing, games and being in the company of family and friends. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved good-natured practical joking. He said that his favorite movie was The Wizard of Oz because he had seen it more times than any other. All who knew him loved him, and family and friends miss him beyond measure. The family suggests donations be made to a charity of your choice in lieu of flowers. Condolences may be expressed at www.whitneymurphyfuneralhome.com.
I’m so heartbroken to hear about Dallas. I’ve known Dallas my whole life and just cannot believe he’s gone. He was family to me and was one of my favorite people. Dallas and Barb were great friends with my parents and I have so many wonderful memories of dinners, camping trips, holidays. It seems they were always there for every major event in my life. Dallas was larger than life and had such a big heart. I absolutely loved him and will miss him dearly. David, Dan, Cindy and family, I pray that you will find peace and God’s comfort through this difficult time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

This breaks my heart. As Barbara’s break/lunch coverage in the 301 Building, we had plenty of time to converse. Barbara would share stories of Saturday Dallas grooming. Barbara loved her daughters un conditionally.. Barbara encouraged Jim Hamblen to date the newly divorced girl in Security (me) & I credit her with our 33 years o f marriage. Dallas was the perfect match & they were the perfect couple.

Dallas always had a smile for everyone!! He will be missed.
Dallas and I were both analysts in Repair and Overhaul in Phoenix working for AiResearch (now Honeywell). We would carpool with Lloyd Kay and shared some great times on those rides to and from work. I lost track of Dallas as we both went different directions within the company. Soon I was back at the Pneumatics Division and Dallas was in Quality Assurance, where we rekindled our relationship. Dallas had an amazing sense of humor and could talk about an array of subjects. I enjoyed the time I got to spend with Dallas and will miss him dearly.
