Precious is all life from God, and it's hard each time a precious life is removed from us. Still, a man does not become an angel as many suggest when they pass, for angels are a created being apart from man. When mankind leaves this world they are destined to become something far more inspiring-themselves, perfected in his light and presence for all eternity. As bright as the stars, Dewaine radiates now and forever more just as his beloved memory burns with an everlasting flame within us.
Dewaine Hornsby, 57, of Piggott, Ark., was born October 17, 1959, in Washington, D.C. He passed away at his home on April 5, 2017, after battling cancer. His journey began at 1:10 a.m., peacefully surrounded by those he loved.
He was preceded in death by his father, Benjamin Hornsby, Jr.; a brother, Donavan Hornsby; a daughter, Cassandra Hornsby and his grandparents.
Dewaine is survived by his mother, Nancy Hornsby of Arkansas; his sisters, Barbara and Vicki, both of Florida and Nanci of Ohio; his daughter, Dana of Georgia; his nephews, Chris of Maryland and Rodger of Florida; great-nieces, Kristen of Maryland and Chaelyn of Florida, and a great-nephew, Donavan of Florida.
Dewaine was a welder by trade, and helped build the props and buildings at Pumpkin Hollow, far removed from the hardships and trials of this world. He shall live on, and we too shall one day reign with him in heaven. His smile, and the light in his eyes, will be missed until the day we meet him again. Until that day Dewaine will remain in the hearts and thoughts of friends and family. Our family will never be the same without him, but is better because we know he now sits on the shoulders of those he loved.
Til' we meet again, through the clouds and off to the stars.
