In his early years Mikel had two children, Kasey Horne and Shannon Horne-Wilkens. As his life progressed, Mikel was blessed with three additional children, Kathryn Barnes (Horne), James Horne and Taylor Horne.
Mikel was a private man who enjoyed embracing the out doors and the ranch life. He was hard working and tough as they came which is easily identified through his children and would always be willing to share a cold drink at the end of the day.

He is survived by his mother Marion Horne, his siblings Chip (Linda) Horne, Beth Horne, Connie (Pat) Schneiderhan, and Laura Horne, his children Kasey (Stephanie) Horne, Shannon (Mike) Horne-Wilkens, Kathryn (Ryan) Barnes, James (Brenna) Horne, Taylor Horne and 8 grand children.
