Robert L. Horohoe Jr. Scholarship FoundationBiography:
Robert was a very kind and caring person who touched many people in so many ways. He was a wonderful son, a caring brother, a doting uncle, a loyal friend, and a loving companion to his fiancé Lilia. I feel very proud to have raised such a special person. I feel very fortunate to have had such a special son.
Robert always went out of his way to include everyone in his life. He loved to socialize. Sitting in the backyard with his friends rehashing old childhood stories over a beer, he would always include his mom. I would be invited to join his friends for a glass of wine. We would laugh into the night.
Robert’s coworkers would encourage him to call me when Robert got particularly annoyed at work. Those conversations would usually end in laughter. Laughter and good times were so much a part of Robert’s life. Family and friends were Robert’s life. It was often hard to draw a line between the two. Robert’s family were also his friends and his friends were also his family.
Robert loved skiing, fishing, and playing tennis or golf with his friends. He loved his work, and worked hard for the firm and his customers. He had the strength and confidence to face challenges, and took great satisfaction in attaining his goals. I am very proud of all Robert had achieved.
Robert was to be married on May 4, 2002 to his fiancé Lilia. He was so happy and very much looking forward to their lifelong future together. They were looking forward to purchasing a home in Holmdel in order to be close to family and friends.
Robert will forever be remembered as a compassionate, generous and loving person with a heart of gold. We know Robert was loved by many, and now his memory will be cherished by all. (source)
