Jason Dean Horrod

March 31, 1981October 1, 2019

With sadness and heavy hearts, we announce that Jason Dean Horrod passed away after a hard battle with cancer on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at the age of 38.

Jason was a kind, accepting, and hard-working man with a great sense of humour and a heart of gold. Born in Edmonton, Alberta, he was a quiet child, but loved to laugh. When he moved to B.C., he took comfort in watching the ocean and the ships as they sailed, but he was not a fan of swimming. After moving to Ontario and joining the cadets in Kitchener, he won an award for the Most Improved Cadet after he bravely jumped from a boat’s mast into the water. On the outside, Jay grew into a man with broad shoulders, who enjoyed body modification; on the inside he was a sensitive and spiritual soul. Very well-read and well-informed, he was a true leader and independent person who could figure things out with ease. He loved to watch wrestling, football, and music concerts, but above all, he loved his family. He was truly an amazing father.

Jason will be deeply missed and forever remembered by his wife and best friend of 13 years, Amanda Horrod, his sons Draven Horrod and Darien Shantz-Fisher, his mother Heather Moore and step-father Murray Moore, his sister Caitie Moore, his aunts Linda McGilvery (Larry), Karenia Jaroch (Michael), and Jaime Gill, his cousins Anthony Jaroch and Warren McGilvery, and many more extended family members and friends. Jason was predeceased by his grandfather Captain James Dean, his grandmother Lily Dean, and his father Terry Horrod.

As per his wishes, cremation has taken place, and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation.

My heart and soul goes out to Jason's family - such an unbearable parting! Jason left this part of our world, knowing how well he was loved - comforted and supported by his mother who was at his side all the way. He was blessed with the knowledge that his family was going to be ok, and that Caitie was on her way to see him. Take comfort in the memories - you never have to give those back and they stay alive with the power of love that created them. His children can keep him close in their hearts and be proud of the man who is their father. Love to you all!
