IN LOVING MEMORY OF Christopher “Chris” Horner.

Chris had a heart bigger than his stature and will be remembered for his ability to never take people and his relationships for granted. Chris passed away peacefully after a short illness with his beloved wife and children by his side.

Chris was married the love of his life, high school sweetheart, Trich, for 36 years. They had 2 children, Joe and Brianne and his pride and joy, grandson Leo. It was extra special he was able to work side by side his son Joe for the past 7 years in the Beverly Hills, CA Raymond James office.

Chris was born in West Covina, CA. After graduating from West Covina High School, he went on to play football on a scholarship, graduating with honors earning a bachelor’s degree in political science and public administration from California State University at Fullerton.

Chris joined Raymond James in 2010 and opened the Los Angeles office as branch manager. He was attracted by the firm’s unique corporate culture and felt that Raymond James is truly committed to serving ultra-high-net-worth families through its dedicated wealth strategies team. He worked closely with Lisa, Gary and the team, to ensure that clients receive the highest degree of personal service and attention.

He held several senior management positions during his career, including regional director, regional sales manager, complex manager, and branch manager. He began his career in the financial services industry in 1987 at Prudential Securities, where he was named rookie of the year.

Outside of work, Chris was active in his community as a youth athletics coach and has served as a board member and vice president of the Covina American Little League. He loved hanging out with his family, supporting USC, Dodgers baseball, the Lakers, Rams and loved to Fish, collecting sports memorabilia, BBQs, and enjoy drinks with friends.

Chris used to always tell Joe and Brianne, “you need to work for things, then ask for things. In that order”. He never turned away a weekend with the family and lived by the 5 pm bell to never “cut into cocktail hour”. That is how Chris lived his life, with grace, hard work, a giant smile, and open door, never taking friends and family for granted.
