In 1970 he married his wife Peggy and had two adventurous sons, Jesse and Benjamin.

It wasn't until Walt reached his mid-forties that sculpture entered his life and it didn't take long for the three-dimensional world of bronze sculpture to become his passion.

Living in Colorado, the next 15 years Walt's bronze work was represented by  various galleries around the country.In 2009 Walt and Peggy opened their own gallery, Walt Horton Fine Art, in Beaver Creek Colorado.

To everyone's surprise Walt passed away in his sleep in March of 2010.

He is greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. His art is still with us and still does the job Walt intended, to make the world a happier place.

From a tender age, Walt always had a way of making people smile. Cartooning was his first career. His life as an artist came naturally, with a lot of hard work, learning as he went, his innate propensity to draw flourished.
