We met in elementary school and I knew Bobby all through high school. We both graduated from DCHS in 1965 and we stayed in contact until now even though I now live in Washington, DC. He will be missed especially at our annual mini class reunions. God Bless him and his family!

Bobby, We worked at the same place for years, and I always enjoyed our chats. You always rememberd us at Xmas with something you made . Thank you for that. You seemed to have a fun life with all the wood shows and craft fairs that you went to. I think of you often.

Bob will be missed on Thursday night at bowling. The "doctor" always had something good to say and was fun to bowl with.

I have known Robert for years, having bowled with him in our bowling league. To us, he was known as Bobbie, Dr Robert, Dr Horton, and just plain doctor. His way of saying hello was scratching your back. I will miss him. My sincere condolences to his family during this difficult time.
