    • Robert D. “Bob” Swette quietly departed this world on Thursday, August 2, 2018. He was born on October 3, 1923, to George and Lillian Swette and was a lifelong resident of Green Bay.

      Bob attended Green Bay West High School and St. Norbert College and was a proud soldier at the European front in World War II. Bob put the war behind him when he returned home, marrying Mary Heintzkill on July 30, 1949. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather his entire life and freely gave his time, support, and love to his family.

      Bob owned Swette Candy Co. for many years before starting a second career as a Realtor. He exemplified the values of working hard and protecting others at work and at home. Bob loved going out to eat with family or friends and was the life of every party, including his 94th birthday party.
