Anthony Horney Jr., 57 – Pitched in the College World Series

Anthony Horney, Jr., 57, of Auburn, passed away Monday, June 22, at his residence in Lake Wynonah.

Born in Lebanon on February 4, 1963, a son of Anthony Horney, Sr. and his wife Roberta of Steelton, and the late Judith (Kapp) Horney.

He and his wife, Lisa White were married for 26 years and shared a passion for family time at the beach, sports and a good laugh.

Anthony was a graduate of Lebanon Catholic High School, Wilmington University and received his Masters of Social Work Degree from Marywood University. Anthony played college baseball and pitched in the college world series.  He received All-American honors that year. Anthony was employed as a clinical social worker.
Anthony was an avid hunter and enjoyed his time upstate with his buddies Mike and Ken.  He also enjoyed fishing.  Always the jokester, with his quick wit and love of the three stooges.

Anthony’s greatest joy was the times he spent with his children. Anthony coached biddy and junior high basketball and also coached baseball at every level; little league teener, and High School at Nativity.  He was so proud of his children’s accomplishments both athletically and academically, and he played a key role in helping them become caring young adults.

Anyone that knew Tony, knew he was a big teddy bear and had a heart of gold.  He would help anyone or any animal in need.

In addition to his wife and father, he is survived by a son, Bryar White; daughter, Keegan White; a sister, Judith, wife of Bob Frantz, of Taylor, SC; and a brother, Kerry Horney, fiance of Jennifer Winfield, of Greenville, SC.

A visitation will be held prior from 10 am until the time of the service at the Funeral Home.
