Writing on behalf of my mom, Kay Walsh, who you’ll remember as a longtime neighbor on 89th Street. She was just remembering you and Bob, Kathy, and what good neighbors you were - how much you’d laugh with each other. We’re such you still miss Bob - and just wish you and the family all our best. Mom is 99 in June, living up in Minneapolis with me. Take care, Maureen

Dear Bob, May your great journey as you transition from this life to the next be a blessed one. It's been a pleasure to get to know your daughter Mary, who sure does seem to be continuing your witness of faith and love at Mercy Burlingame. Know that you and all the family are held in prayer. Rest now dear one; blessings; ~~~Brent

When I moved into Wauwatosa in June of 1980, I first met Bob when he was on 64th and North. He remained my barber until he retired. I always enjoyed conversing with him and sharing stories. I missed him when he retired and I still think about him from time to time. My condolences and God comfort the family.

Mary, my prayers are with you and all in your family as you grieve the loss of your father and celebrate his life. May he know the fullness of life in God's presence.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Jason Bond left a message on August 4, 2021:
I was sad and surprised to learn of Bob's passing. He was my barber from 1989 until 2006 when he retired. I always looked forward to my haircut along with enjoying insightful and humorous conversion with him. Above all, Bob clearly showed that he know Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. May the Lord Jesus Christ be with the Horkheimer family at this time and forevermore. Jason Bond. Milwaukee, WI.
