In Memory

Robert Swedlow

Robert Swedlow

We were unable to locate an obituary, but thought the memories posted at the time of his passing were appropriate to repeat here.  He was still living in Fort Lauderdale and had just turned 62.

It was with great sadness that I learned of Bobby's passing. But it is with great warmth and fondness that I remember the fine young boy and the many good times we spent at Cumberland school, riding our bikes down Sheffield, and playing basketball at AZA. I will always cherish the special memories of this special man.

Like those who have written here before me (and Stuart who just called me), I lost touch with "Bobby" years ago but vividly recall growing up with him in Whitefish Bay. Grade school and high school, birthday parties, Temple Shalom, cars, girls, family ... That's the Bobby I'll warmly remember and miss. My sincere sympathy to Steve and others who knew Robert, became close to him over the intervening years, and deeply feel his loss.

We just found out that Bobby was gone....we don't know what happened. In recent years we have thought about Bobby, sad that time had slipped between us, recalling the diminutive yet charismatic smart brain (with the best hair!!) that he was when we knew him. We loved you, Bobby.... and hope that you have found peace.

As kids on Sheffield, Bob and I were best friends. I have so many great memories of our times together. I am very sad we have lost him.

I'm so very sad to hear Bobby has passed on. What great memories I have from our Cumberland School days . Bobby had the gifts of laughter and kindness. Bobby's deep laugh and  wonderful sense of humor kept our class laughing ,and what a head of hair he had!   I remember going to the dance lessons he organized in grade school.  Our friends  Neil Wiesfield , Stuart Turnansky (?) and anothers had good times while learning to Cha-Cha, and do the Madison. I fondly remember going to the circus with Bobby and several others, we had a ball. So farewell and rest in peace Bobby, my old friend. I offer my sympathy to Steve and Bobby's family.

I also remember lots of special times with Bobby. I spent tons of time on Sheffield ave. Fond memories of  building a go-kart from scratch, Dance lessons with Bobby and others at Jeff Soref's house, all I remember is the teachers name was Gene ?. Bobby's mom Lenore buying us all the 19cent George Webb  burgers we could eat. So sorry you won't be with us Bobby. Your grade school buddy. Jim Carey . Looking forward to seeing lots of the Cumberland gang at the reunion.
