Our deepest sympathy Sally and family. Some of our best memories of Bob are at the camp. Fishing, four-wheelers, burning trash in the fire, fishing in the river and playing corn hole. Thank you for always making our family feel welcomed, loved, and a part of your beautiful family! Bob will be missed.
Craig, Tina, Maxx and Mitchell Swineford

No more chasing forest animals down and releasing them unharmed. No more building rafts and floating them down the Susquehanna. No more chasing the leather at Riverside Stadium. No more outings as United States Marines. But, Bob, old buddy, no one can take away the memories of moments we shared least while I am able to breathe, think and write. Semper Fi, Brother. "Hou-Rah" to us and to those like us. Dr. Allen R. (Dick) Remaley

Sally & family, sorry to hear about Bob. Don't know what we'll miss most, his sense of humor (yobe) or sitting around fire watching the sky! He will be missed.
