Bob HollowHorn

Postby Sharon » Tue Apr 19, 2016 8:13 am

It's with a heavy heart that I pass on the sad news that HollowHorn passed away last night; he had cancer. One of the best of men, he will be very sadly missed. He was the much loved HG elder for a decade and it really just won't be the same without him.

RIP Robert, we will miss you.

He wasn't bad, eh? What a good fella. RIP.

Just heard this news.

Very sad. Hollowhorn was one of the first forum members I got to know on line when I first moved to glasgow.

I'll miss ye Bob, but I'll always have me photies and memory's, I'll be thinking about ye on days out and nattering with other HG members - I still cant believe it. RIP

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. HollowHorn was very welcoming when I first came here and he was so helpful to me and went out of his way to provide valuable information seeing as I couldn't get it for myself. There is a thread on here about St Andrews Square which he was almost single-handedly responsible for, with a wealth of information, all because I asked a question. I'll never forget his kindness.

RIP HollowHorn

Very sad news.

I may only have met him once in person but from dealings and interactions on here he seemed like a thoroughly helpful, friendly and enthusiastic chap.
