August 15,1929 – August 29, 2015
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Robert (Bob) Horton of Courtenay and formerly of Halifax, as well as several military bases he called home, wishes to announce his passing on August 29, 2015 in the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria B.C. He is survived by his wife of 51 years Margaret, sons Robert (Nanette)and Sean (Anita), grandchildren Cameron, Jessica, Rachael, Mclean, Landen and Oakley, and brother Skip (Vivian) Horton and their children and grandchildren. He is predeceased by his parents Cora and Emdon Horton. Bob spent 32 years in the R.C.A.F. as a financial officer which included a peacekeeping mission in Egypt. He served his country with great pride and dignity. His family was his world – his passing will leave a great hole that will be felt by all of them. He had a great sense of humour that will be sadly missed by all who knew him. As requested by Bob, there will be no service. Arrangements have been entrusted to Toneff Funeral Services.
