Robert Bruce Horton died on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 with his wife by his side in Kenosha, WI at The Bay on Sheridan nursing home. Bob, 80, was born on April 13, 1941 in Gary, IN. He graduated in 1959 from Wilmot High School.
Bob was a Vietnam Veteran in the Air Force where he learned to fly and love airplanes. After he returned from his deployment, he continued to be a pilot for K-Airways where he met his wife, Noreen. Later in life, Bob worked and retired from Patel Gianetti Construction.
Bob could talk to and connect with anyone, anywhere. He always had time to share his stories, advice, or his opinions to make small talk or just to make others laugh! In his free time, Bob loved fishing and hunting which was evident in the time he spent with his grandkids, teaching them everything from gun safety to casting a line. You could always count on Bob to be there if you needed him.
Bob is survived by his wife Noreen Horton (Gross), November 1972; son Ryan Horton (Kandi); daughter Heather Davison; grandchildren Brandon Horton, Abby Horton, Owen Davison, Annalise Davison, and Benjamin Davison. He is also survived by siblings Bonnie Kennefick (Thomas), Thomas Horton, Susan Luebchow (Carl), and Steven Horton.
Bob is preceded in death by his parents Robert and Arlene Horton and sister Cheryl Horton.
We will sorely miss Bob (Papa) and everything he brought to our lives.
