Obituary of Barry Horstman


Barry M. passed away suddenly Monday, February 25, 2013.

Beloved husband of Sheila Guckenberger Horstman (nee Deck), cherished Stepfather to Kristen (Kevin) Adams and loving "Grandpa Barry" to Alexandra "Lexi" Adams and Nathaniel Adams of Mt. Washington. He also is survived by his three brothers and several nieces and nephews, Ronald (Gloria) Horstman and Zachary Horstman of Bridgetown; Jeffrey (Linda) Horstman and Christopher Horstman of Delhi; and David (Joni) Horstman, and Emma and Elise Horstman of Anderson.

Barry was a resident of Mt. Lookout. He loved Cincinnati, journalism and his family. The West Side native was a newspaper reporter for The Cincinnati Post, The Cincinnati Enquirer, the Scripps Howard News Service, The Las Vegas Sun and the San Diego bureau of the Los Angeles Times but he always came back to his hometown. An Anglophile, he visited London often among his travels around the globe. An avid runner, he also took pride in always being well dressed.
