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.

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 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.
