Billy Jerome horn was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania by Emily and Oscar Horn. When World War 2 began, he eagerly volunteered to fight for his country. Initially, he was turned down by the Marine corps, but was able to join the Army's airborne division (Pvt Billy Jerome Horn 11th Airborne 511th PIR Company Hq1). Joining the Army led him to training in North Carolina, where he met and married Virginia Dare Horn. They were married until her death on October 15, 1997.

The marriage produced 2 daughters. Both daughters have 3 children each and live in North Carolina and Georgia.

Billy Horn led a very productive and meaningful life, being a church and community leader until Virginia's declining health pushed them to stay home and worked as a masterful electrician.

After a long battle with an aggressive form of lung cancer, Billy Jerome Horn passed away in his long-time home on March 16, 2006.
