Robert “Rob” John Hordzwick

Robert “Rob” John Hordzwick, 60, passed away Tuesday, September 6, 2016.

Rob was born July 21, 1956 in Glendale, California, to Edward and Maryanna Hordzwick. He grew up in Burbank, California, graduating from Burbank High School where he later went to Pierce Community College in 1975. This is where he met the love of his life, Kristin Leann Hein, and they married in 1977. They have been happily married for 39 years. Together they had two daughters, Tara and Kristina.

Throughout Rob’s childhood, his parents took him and his sisters on camping trips in Lake Tahoe. This is where his true love for Tahoe began and continued as him and Kristi, both Cali natives, ventured for a new life and home in Lake Tahoe in 1987. They continued to live in the area for the following 30 years.

Rob loved what he did, as a real estate agent for almost 40 years in Southern California and the Northern Nevada area. Some of his happiest moments were spent on the golf course with his family and friends.

Rob is survived by his loving wife, Kristi, daughters Tara Deming and Kristina Hordzwick, and his beautiful granddaughter Dylan Grace. He is also survived by his Mother, Maryanna Hordzwick, and his sisters, Kathy Varlotta and Carol Nagy, as well as his many nieces and nephews. Rob was a loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend.

A celebration of life will be held from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Sunday, September 18 at Lake Tahoe Golf Course, 2500 Emerald Bay Rd, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150.
