Congressman Frank Horton dies at home in Virginia

Former congressman Frank Horton, who represented the region in the House of Representatives for 30 years, died Monday at his home in Virginia. He was 84.
Rep. Horton retired in 1993 when his district was redrawn rather than seek re-election against incumbent Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-Perinton.
Before his election to Congress, Rep. Horton was a member of the Rochester City Council from 1955 to 1961. He was president of Rochester Community Baseball Inc. from 1956 to 1961, and was executive vice president of the International Baseball League from 1959 to 1961, also serving as attorney for the league.
Born in Texas and raised in Louisiana, Rep. Horton graduated from law school at Cornell University, was admitted to the New York bar in 1947 and began his practice in Rochester.
