Paul D. Horton of Plymouth, and formerly of Pembroke passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on Sunday night, December 6th, 2020 after a courageous battle with liver cancer. He was a loving father to his daughter Nichole Holmes and her husband Bill of Plymouth, and to his late son Paul Horton . He was the caring stepfather to Heather March and her husband Joe March of Pembroke. Paul was a devoted grandfather to Haley March, Caylin and Samarah Holmes, and a very special “Papa” to Jennie and Madilyn Holmes. He came from a large family and was the oldest of six children. He will be greatly missed by his brothers and sisters, Cheryl Donahue of Center Harbor, New Hampshire, Gary Horton and his wife Lynne of Malden David Horton and his wife Siobhan of Plymouth, Julie Horton of Kingston, and Gregg Horton and his wife Tracey of Marshfield. He was also a cherished uncle to many nieces and nephews. Paul was also best friend to Mike Neil and his wife Cindy, Eddie McDonough, and Stephen Amrhein all from Plymouth. He was loved by many friends and extended family. He is also survived by his wife Denise Horton of Pembroke.

Paul grew up in Malden Massachusetts, son of the late Paul W. Horton and Dorothy E. (Cadeiro) Horton. He graduated from Malden High School in 1973 and was a skillful carpenter with Carpenters Local Union 40. After Paul retired, he continued to enjoy the trade and was always helping family and friends with their home improvement projects. In his younger years he enjoyed playing basketball, hockey, and skating with friends and siblings. The countless summers he spent with his parents, brothers and sisters at their cottage on White Horse Beach would start his love for fishing and the ocean. As he got older, he became the best hands-on dad, taking pride in his children, coaching their basketball teams, and sharing his love for fishing, the sea, and walks around the point at White Horse Beach. He loved long car rides and stopping by his friends’ homes to shoot the breeze. He enjoyed cooking, and grilling, but will vividly be remembered standing at the sink washing the dishes. Fishing and boating from his blue Princecraft that he was constantly fixing was something he immensely enjoyed. Paul was most proud of being a “Papa” and adored his granddaughters beyond words, they always put the biggest smile on his face. To know Paul was to love him and his kindness and love for everyone will always be remembered.
