Robert W. Swanson, 89, of Wheaton, passed away May 29, 2018.

Bob never forgot a birthday or any holiday that gave him an excuse to send a card. He was a proud Navy veteran and VFW member. He was also a memberof the Wheaton Elk’s Club where he regularly plotted with fellow members to keep the USA on the right path. It took a lot of hammer swings, but he found a way to pay the tuition for his four kids to graduate from St. Petronille in Glen Ellyn and Benet Academy in Lisle. Because of his self-sacrifice all four kids and his 11 grandchildren old enough to do so, have completed college. Visitation Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. at Williams-Kampp Funeral Home 430 E.
