Dear Horr family, I was so very sorry to hear about Bob's passing. Back in 1995, I did my student teaching at Grandview Heights High School, and Bob was my cooperating teacher. I could not have asked for a better experience. He was the epitome of an excellent teacher, and I learned so much from him. He had masterful knowledge of all things literature, but more important, he was great with the students on a personal level. He truly cared, and it showed. On my last day of student teaching, he took me out to lunch at the Red Door Tavern. One detail I will never forget is that he told me I had what it took to be a great teacher. It meant the world to me. I took those words with me as I embarked on my career teaching English at Gahanna Lincoln High School. I'm currently in year 24, and much of my success in the classroom I owe to my experience as a student teacher learning from Bob. I'm very sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Joe Mischler

I remember our couples circle group going to the men’s homeless shelter years ago to serve a meal and a young (probably 20 something) man called out Bob’s name. He had been a student of Bob’s in Grandview. I believe the former student was battling drug addiction and other mental health issues. Bob sat with him and had the same kind of conversation he would have engaged in with any student. Never one to judge, but always one to show kindness and respect for everyone.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.
