HORNER, Lloy Thomas "Whitey" - 83, Woodside, passed away June 30, 2006, in Dartmouth General Hospital, surrounded by his family. Born April 12, 1923, in Woodside, he was a son of the late Henry Thomas "Nicky" and Winnifred (Henneberry) Horner. He was a former employee of Fairbanks Morse, spent 13 years as a purchaser with Fairey Aviation, and retired in 1986 after 17 years as Senior Buyer with the Halifax Shipyards. Besides his family, Whitey's true passions were softball and bowling. The youngest of four boys, he began his softball career as a boy, assuming the position of pitcher in make-up games played at Carney Field. As a boy, his neighbourhood Woodside teams traveled throughout Metro to play softball. Through the 1940s, in an era when gloves were not allowed on the field, he played Senior "A" ball for Myers Sport Store, losing the Nova Scotia Championship to Greenwood in 1949. It was also in senior ball that the North Stars defeated Whitey's team in the first game of the finals before he came back to pitch and win the next four games. Through the 1950s and 60s he played with the H and D League in Dartmouth and as a member of the International Association of Machinists on the Fairey Aviation Field in Shearwater. Through the 1970s, Whitey played with Esso in the Intermediate "D" Softball League and one year, he and his nephew, Clyde, pitched their team to an undefeated 20 consecutive win season with Whitey winning 12 of those games. Following a playing career that spanned 57 years, Whitey became a softball mentor and coach in the local sport scene. Whitey began his bowling career as a boy at the Spud Beazley Bowling Centre in Dartmouth. About the age of 15, when his brother, Clyde, asked him to fill in for a member of the Dartmouth Church League's Immaculate Conception Bowling team, Whitey joined his father and another brother, Reginald, on the team, and began a career which lasted 66 straight years. Throughout his Immaculate Conception years, Whitey bowled with his father, his brother, Reginald, his nephew, Clyde, and his son, Reggie. During the last 30 years or more, he served as Captain of the Immaculate Team, finishing 2006 with an average well into the 90s on a team which won both the League Championships and League Playoffs. Since the 1950s, Whitey was also a member of what began as the Fairey Aviation Bowling League, continuing to bowl regularly in that league through the course of 2006. Whitey is survived by daughters, Valerie (Lloyd MacQueen), Dartmouth; Cynthia (Blair Sampson), Dartmouth; son, Reggie (Carolyn Snow), Halifax; brother, Reginald, Dartmouth; granddaughters, Melanie (Edmund Kennedy), Dartmouth; Aimee Cook, Halifax; grandsons, Taylor Cook, Dartmouth; Jonny Horner, Halifax; great-grandchildren, Ryan, Kayden and Kennedi, all of Dartmouth; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife, Catherine "Katie" Elizabeth (Cox) in 1994; brothers, Clyde, who died overseas in 1944 in Holland during the Second World War, and Basil "Liz". He was a lifelong member of Immaculate Conception Church and a past member of the International Association of Machinists. Visitation will be 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Sunday in Dartmouth Funeral Home. Funeral mass 10 a.m. Monday in Immaculate Conception Church, Rev. Owen Connelly officiating. Burial will be in Mount Hermon Cemetery.
