Horst C. Ammon, 87, passed away peacefully at home on January 15, 2021 surrounded by his beloved wife of 61 years, Dolores and loving family.
Born in Newark, NJ, to parents Gustav and Luise (Kasten) Ammon, he proudly served his country in the US Navy on the USS Hissem.

He was very active and enjoyed bowling, skiing, fishing, tending to his vegetable garden, taking trips to Atlantic City and doing home improvement projects. His most beloved hobby of all was cutting and splitting firewood.
