William Gilbert Hornberger passed away on April 30, 2016. He was in all respects a true mountain of a man, a genuinely kind-hearted person, a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served in the Tucson Arizona Mission. He was a tremendous father and husband. He loved being outdoors and especially loved being in the outdoors with others. From biking all over this country to spending numerous summers at Hull Valley Scout Camp teaching scouts horsemanship through pack trips and mountain biking, to climbing the highest mountain in South America, Aconcagua twice, it is an understatement to say he loved adventure. He died in a climbing accident in Logan Canyon doing one of the things he loved most, climbing and helping others.
He was a teacher at Alice C. Harris Intermediate School where he taught math and science.
William was born November 18, 1970 in Drayton Valley, Alberta, Canada.
He is survived by his parents Gilbert and Joan Redd Hornberger of Cardston, Alberta, Canada; his wife, Jennifer Richardson Hornberger; six children William Chad, Mark Adam (currently serving in the New Zealand Wellington Mission), Erin LaRae, James Sawyer, Kimberly Joan and Jared Gilbert all of Garland, Utah; his siblings Michael (Jenet), Laurel, Kathleen (Aaron) Dodd, Karen, Clark (deceased), Dorothy (Paul) Dodd, Harold (Heather), Susan (Josh) McDaniels, Sandra (Josh) Perry, Hermie (Dave) Morgan, David (Celeste), Darin (Carley), Rebecca, Donna (Micah) Weber and numerous nephews and nieces.
