My heart felt condolences to the Swinden family on the passing of Robert "Bob". I have many remembrances of Bob from the days at Camp Kandalore especially on the Lake Superior trip where he was a respected member of the crew. The crew of 4 consisted of Peter Anderson, Bob Swinden, Craig McDonald and Alden MacEachern. Hopefully , hopefully, the following photos will bring back good memories, Again, my regards Alden "Aldie" MacEachern. (Craig is the photographer fom the bow.)
I remember Rob very fondly.
For high school after dance parties in his parents’ basement, for the adventure of being fraternity roommates in college, the honour of being best man at his and Georgie’s wedding in England, for many lazy evenings at their place for dinner discussing all that was important in the world, for both water skiing and snow skiing with him, and after Georgie’s death, for his visits to us at the Jersey Shore, in Philly and Vermont, and more recently, for our quiet and reflective conversations when I was occasionally able to be in Toronto and take him out for a drink and dinner.
He contributed much richness to my life over many years, and I am sure to many others.
He is missed.
