In Memoriam
Gene Alley (Sept. 2, 1931 - May 23, 2015)
HORN CEO and Chariman Emeritus

A visionary and beloved leader, Gene Alley, HORN CEO and Chairman Emeritus passed away in his San Clemente home on May 23, 2015. Gene was an extraordinary person and his presence is already missed well beyond the walls of the company he has helped to shape and build.

Gene was known to endorse that building genuine, lasting relationships with partners is the key to success, on the part of both his company and the industry it serves. His influence is evident in HORN’s success today from its devoted industry support, to the selection and training of its technical sales team and the way it conducts business with transparency, integrity and collaboration. His adherence to progressive, forward-thinking performance and his 50+ years of expert experience are qualities of a dedicated industry leader, an identity that is evident in the positive impact he has on HORN and the industry. Gene will continue to motivate future generations at HORN. His leadership and sense of humor will be greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, please consider supporting “Team HORN in Memory of Gene Alley,” a fundraiser benefiting Gene's favorite charity, Wounded Warrior Project® – a nonprofit that honors and empowers wounded warriors – sailors, soldiers, marines and airmen who sacrificed so much to defend our freedom.
