He proudly served in the United States Army from 1956 to 1959. If he
knew you served he would always thank you for your service.

He was an avid fisherman and hunter. He enjoyed company of any kind,
especially coffee time and never turned anyone away. His greatest joy the
last three years was going out to eat and the Sunday visits at his home with his granddaughters, Makenzie & Alexandra Yearick and especially his great grandchildren, Sophia & Ryan Hoffmaster. He also enjoyed attending family reunion's when they had them.

Preceded in death by five brothers, Gary, Donald, Neil, Harold, Butch Swartzlander, three sisters, Katherine Benelisha, Rosella Hoffman, and Eleanor Smith, and a great grandson, Wyatt Erb.

Due to current health restrictions, a service will be held at a later date.

Robert would say this a lot lately: If you can't come see me when I'm living you don't need to see me when I'm gone.
