Arnold H. Horn peacefully passed on June 23, 2020. He was born March 7, 1934 in New York City, son of Edward and Lee Horn. He was predeceased by his wife, Marilyn Cosgrove Horn in August 2015.

Arnold grew up in the Bronx, attended the New York City High School for Music and Arts. He continued his education at the Pratt University School of Architecture and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Architecture and Professional Planning in 1957. He met his wife, Marilyn at Pratt, where she graduated in 1959 with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture.

Contemporary architecture was Arnold’s passion. He worked at several New York City firms. He then moved to Princeton New Jersey to work for another general practice firm.  He also worked at the Wigton-Abbott Design Construction firm in central New Jersey for 15 years. In 1975, he and Marilyn opened a private architectural practice full time where they both worked until they retired in 2005.

Arnold’s work encompassed many well-known commercial projects, including work for Gillette, Shell Oil, Johnson & Johnson, International Flavor & Fragrances, and Proctor & Gamble. He also had a great passion for the design of residences. He worked on over 300 projects during his career including a 1972, project to design an addition to a Frank Lloyd Wright home in central New Jersey. Like Wright, he was passionate about including indigenous materials in his designs.

Arnold and Marilyn traveled the world and the United States extensively, especially to destinations of architectural interest.  Together they raised and loved award winning Weimaraners for field trials. Marilyn trained and traveled with their dogs around the country for numerous competitions.

In 2016, Arnold moved from the Princeton area of New Jersey to Indian River Estates in Vero Beach. He is survived by his son, Michael Horn, a computer programmer in Hillsborough, New Jersey, his son, Darrell Horn, a veterinarian and daughter in law, Susan Keller Horn of Vero Beach, Florida, his son, James Horn, a metal sculptor in Beacon, New York, his grandchildren, Halle Horn of Atlanta, Georgia and Conrad Horn of Vero Beach, Florida and his sister, Nancy Stevens of Delray Beach, Florida.
