Uncle Bob will be missed. My mother Ruby and Bob were always very close. As kids, we couldnt wait for him to come home from his US Navy travels and see him in his uniform. He always taught us some words of Japanese. It is so sad to see the last of that clan pass on. RIP Uncle Bob. Much love to you.

God Blessings be with the Sweny Family. Wonderful memories of the Guy Sweny family while growing up in Sunray. Worked for Jim and Bob as a high school student. Ruby was our neighbor in Canyon as the wife of Buz Bonds.
