Olivia and Dee,
So very sorry for your loss. Please know our thoughts and prayers will be with you during this difficult time. It seems like those volleyball days and other good times were just yesterday. Breaks my heart to know Bob is gone. I would run into him off and on and he was always so friendly and anxious and proud to give me "Olivia updates".
Blessings to your family,

I worked for Bob many years ago at Goods and will always remember his laugh and the many, many stories he shared with us. I'm very sorry to hear of your loss.

I knew Bob when he was a Rep at BMS as we were in the same District for some time. He was a good sales rep and added to our meetings. Customers liked him and enjoyed his humor and knowledge of the products. I'm sorry that he is gone and extend my condolences to each member of his family.
- From: Bruce Gage
I am not sure if you remember me. I worked with Bob at BMS. He was a good friend to me while he was there and I really enjoyed working with him. Professionally, Bob was always product and disease state savvy and I always remembered him asking piercing questions in meetings. His wit and humor was timely in taking the edge off a hard day. I talked to him often when I needed to relate or hear a friendly voice whilst in the field. I lost track of him in recent years and was only able to talk to him a few times once he left the organization. He was your husband and my friend.
I am sorry and regret your loss. Dee, he is in my prayers today.

It's been a lot of years since I pestered Bob to work at the sailboat rental. Looking at that picture of him holding that big tarpon, I can hear his distinctive voice. I always enjoyed Bob, but did not know his family. My prayer would be that you all would have great peace and much love during this difficult time. My time around the sailboats, my younger days, is precious to me... Bob is a part of those memories for me. He will be missed.

Dee & Olivia,
I was surprised to hear about Bob passing.
He was part of our BMS Team with Big Al. I will never forget when I drove my Vibe and
Bob's knee touched the dash. He couldn't
drive the car---He was too tall.
I am so sorry for your family and you will be
in my prayers.
- From: Geoff Cochran
Dee and Olivia, I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Bob. He was one of the first reps I met after taking my job, and was always gracious in answering any questions I had in the field. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I would like to express my sympathy to you for the loss of your brother. I met him when he owned Goods and he was always friendly and helpful. I can see from his obituary that he will be much missed.

I was very saddened to hear of Bob's passing. I have know him for many years including his days near Lake Monroe when I was with the Fourwinds.
I always admired his drive and personality... he will be missed by all of us.

You walk in my footsteps all too soon...

I had not seen Bob in many years but can still remember him from the days on Lake Monroe. Bob rented the sailboats and I rented the ski boats out of the Fourwinds Marina. We had a great time in the 70s and 80s. Bob will be missed by everyone who knew him and my thoughts are with you and your family.
- From: Alice Lindeman
To all the Swansons: fond memories of Thanksgiving. It has been a pleasure to have shared Thanksgiving with you all. Bob was a key part of the conversations and "stories," Henry and I shall most certainly miss him.

Dear Dee and the Swanson family,
Our thoughts are with you on this day of loss.
Yet when I think of Bob, I can't help from grinning! He always had a wry anectdote to make me laugh. We'll all miss him, even knowing that his suffering is over.
Very sorry that we can't be there with you.
