He was the son of the late Harold Horner and Eleanor Golt Horner. He was a 1960 graduate from Easton High School. Bob served proudly in the Maryland National Guard, 29th Infantry Division from 1962-1969. He was a member of Oasis Covenant Church in Easton, Easton Volunteer Fire Company throughout the 1960’s, and the Train Collector’s Association since 1972. Bob worked for T.

He worked for Talbot County Public Schools as a Bus Contractor/Driver for many years from 1970’s-1980’s; Bob was also a driving instructor for TCPS. He especially enjoyed his time transporting students on Bus 30, to and from Oxford. From 1989-1992, Bob volunteered with the Chesapeake Railroad, operating the brush-clearing machine along the railroad between Clayton, DE and Easton, MD. During the 1990’s, Bob worked for his classmate, Earl Swann, in his farming operation. From 1994-1995, he worked for Tom Cohee at Barker’s Landing. But, the most significant amount of time working, was spent working for his parents at the H&G Restaurant in Easton until 1980, when he purchased it from them. He owned the restaurant from 1980-1990 and then again from 1999-2005. He loved visiting and talking with friends, telling stories and reminiscing.
