Robert Barker 25/04/1953 - 03/01/2022

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sad news of the passing of Robert Barker, the founder (along with his wife Anne) of HSC.

Robert and Anne started HSC back in 1985, following Roberts passion for Homeopathy and all things natural health. His enthusiasm and energy grew the company from a single tray of bottles to the company it is today.

Although having stepped back from the business a few years ago, leaving it in the capable hands of Anne, his son Alan and all the amazing staff who work here, his ethos and principles remain strongly embedded in HSC to this day.

Robert will be hugely missed and although the last few years had been a struggle for him, his legacy as a kind, generous and loving husband, father and friend will live with us forevermore.

As per Roberts wishes, a donation will be made to the Amma Resonance Healing Foundation (https://www.arhf.nl/en/home/) to support their work in Africa, a charity he hugely admired and supported.

I’m very sad to read of Rob’s passing. Like some of the comments above, I was so well supported and encouraged by him when I started my homeopathy training in 1987. He was unforgettably patient, kind and generous. He will be sadly missed and I am so glad HSC continues with his family. Wendy

Dear Anne and the HSC team,
Learning of your family news, I feel saddened but remembering too the wonderfully caring and supportive approach Robert took with me as I started my Homoeopathic training in 2002, and in placing my first order with HSC. I remember with appreciation, Robert’s quiet support and attentiveness – hallmarks of HSC today!
Yours sincerely,

I am so sad to read of Robert’s departure from the earth. I met him in 1987 and he made an indelible impression on me because of his open heart, fair mindedness and humility. I have supported his business for many years and will continue to do so.
He was a truly lovely person and even though I didn’t know him well I always appreciated his kind soul in the days I studied at the college of homeopathy.
I send my deepest condolences to his family and team.

It was always a pleasure to see Rob at homeopathic events. It took me back to those early days at the College of Homeopathy when the Homeopathic Supply Company was first emerging. We all owe Rob a great deal for his vision and enterprise. Because of his integrity we have had such high quality homeopathic supplies over the years. Blessings to his family.
