It is with a heavy heart that I bring the solemn news of the passing of one of the earliest stalwart supporters of the Border Patrol Foundation, Bob Horn. Bob recently passed after a long illness. Bob has been with the foundation as a voting member of the board since late 2009. He provided legal advice and expert guidance each year since then. Bob was recently honored at the BPF Annual Recognition Dinner, October 2019, for his many laudable contributions to the foundation. To say he will be missed is an understatement. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Bob’s family and dearest friends.
