My principal knew Mike and he told us about it today. He said he bought a boat from him in 1997 and then heard that he died in the plane crash. He said when he heard that he was so sad.

I personally am very sorry for all his relatives as they are going through grief today.

Mike I was up in NYC over the Holidays. The WTC/911 memorial has a "preview Museum". It has a running slide show of 911 memorials from around the world. Ours was not in the slide show, so I reached out and had a picture sent. They were really impressed.

I served with Rocks at Cherry Point, NC. I was a new copilot when Mike was a new Aircraft commander. We never flew there together but he was a highly respected officer in the squadron. When I transferred to Pensacola I flew with him while learning to be a flight instructor. I think we flew 3-4 times together. I think about him quiet often. He was a great guy.  Keep looking down on us Rocks! Miss you.

On this day we lost some great people, I knew Michael from his time in Pensacola.Our kids played together at times. What a loss of a great man! Our prayers are with you.

Be well Michael. All the best to your family. I think of you often friend.

Every year at this time I take out our photo albums of the Pensacola time that our families shared. There are photos of our daughters in Winnie the Pooh outfits, and all the kids playing in the yards. But the picture that will stay in my heart forever, is that of Michael always around, playing, reading, or holding your kids. He was such an OUTSTANDING father, husband, Marine and person. We are blessed to have great memories of him, and think about your family often! You have kept the memory of Michael alive in so many ways, but watching what your kids have accomplished is truly seeing Michael live on! Hugs to all!

I never met Mike, but we graduated from the same high school. I always use to walk past the plaque in our school that was in remembrance of Mike. I now hear the high school is also dedicating a memorial that will be on permanently on campus. I may have never known you, but you sound like a person that was incredibly kind. I will be thinking of you on Sunday the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

We miss Michael very much. He was a HUGE part of our family. We have many, many good memories of him and always will. Our love to the whole family. You are always in our thoughts and prayers. Love Dawn and Debbie :-)

Michael was the son of two friends of mine from LBI. I remember Mike as a cute little boy who grew up to be a Marine pilot and a father. I was very sad after 9-11 but when I heard that Mike was one of the pilots the tragedy became very personal. I pray that the last 10 years has soften the pain and loss for the family. Michael represented our best and a true hero. God Bless Michael

Your son and my brother went to school together and I was too young to remember 9/11, but I know the loss of you affected my whole family ever since we heard the news.

May you rest in peace MIKE!

To whom this may concern. I am looking for information on victims of 9/11 and if they were survived by any children. I am taking a course at Rutgers University where we need to find a child and interview them. So did Mr. Horrocks have any children that are still alive?

I am a senior at WCU. I did not know Michael personally and was not able to go to the unveiling of the statue, but I have passed it many times. It is absolutely beautiful. I praise the university for remembering and honoring such a hero. He risked his life for our country and ended up dying. We cannot be more grateful for such brave citizens because without them, we would not be free.

You lived an honorable life, Michael, and I hope you are resting peacefully.

God bless you, Mike Horrocks. Your family is living proof of who you are!

I found out at the last minute on Saturday 9/11 that the Michael Horrocks memorial was going to occur. I made it in time to the Farrell Field at WCU and was absolutely INSPIRED when they did the unveiling of the memorial. I attend classes at WCU and will stop by at least twice a month to visit the memorial. I AM SO PROUD OF THE WEST CHESTER UNIVERSITY'S MICHAEL HORROCKS MEMORIAL — YOU DID IT ALL RIGHT!

  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you,
