In Memory of Robert Swanson

Hello all, this is Robert’s Daughter, Samantha, or as my dad used to call me, his little girl.   I didn’t really make myself known to many, but my dad always made it loud and clear 

I wanted to come forth today that my father, Robert Bradley Swanson, had passed away, on November 18th, 2020, from Stage 4 Cancer.   He leaves behind 3 sons and a daughter, Bradley Donald Swanson, 30 ; Samantha Jeanette Swanson, 25 ; Franklin Adam Swanson, 23; and last but not least, the newer addition to the family, Gavan Robert Swanson, 9.  Including with mother, who he was married to, for 25 years, and known for 30, Jamie-Marie Swanson, 47.  

As well, I can’t definitely forget, his 3 grandchildren; Bentley, Asher, and one the way and due any day.  

My father was a very outgoing, smart, and skilled individual, who was loved by many in the community, even so coached, and sub coached the baseball teams, and the football team of Big Bear Lake, Big Bear Bears ; He was known as Mr. Fix-It ; even so “ Bob the Builder “. 

I as well, am coming forth, to reach out to the community, and the family and friends that so dearly loved my father and us as well over the years, for help during this hard time.  That way, the community, friends, and family can pitch in to help with expenses of his services, bills, and as well, and most importantly, help further with Gavan’s tuition.  That way my youngest brother can succeed during this hard time, and being so young, having to face the loss of a guiding figure, his father.  

Any help is appreciated, even as it’s just a dollar or 2.  

Thank you so much, may he Rest In Peace
