Lennon was born April 12, 2002 in Decorah, the son of Dwight and Shauna (Swift) Horns. He was a sophomore at Postville Community School, Postville.

Lennon lived his whole life in what was his own personal paradise, within the valleys surrounding the Yellow River north of Postville. He spent his time fishing for trout, finding fossils, looking for whitetail deer sheds, kayaking and mushroom hunting. He also enjoyed camping on the Mississippi River, exploring the wilderness with his dog, Molly, finding arrowheads, target shooting with his gun or bow, working and making money. Most of all, Lennon loved inviting others to share in his passion of spending time outdoors.
