Robert Jackson Swanner, 60, passed away on Friday, January 1st, 2016.
“Big Bobby” as he was affectionately known by his family and friends was born October 9, 1955 to the late Renaldo and Virginia Swanner in Norfolk, VA. Big Bobby lived his life the way he wanted, full of life with a smile on his face embracing each and every moment. His loyalty to his family and friends was obvious to everyone who was fortunate to have known him. Big Bobby’s large stature could bring fear to any man but those who knew him would say he was a kind loving person who would give you the shirt off his back. Bobby will always be remembered as a loving father, grandfather, brother, cousin and friend. He will be deeply missed.
Left to cherish his memory are: son, “Little Bobby” Swanner and wife Heather; daughter, Kellie Smith; two brothers, Mike Swanner and Phil Estes; sister, Sandra Swanner-Harbor; grandchildren: Jackson Swanner, Hayleigh Swanner, Madison Swanner and Carson Smith; “adopted son”, Chris Martin; best friend Jerry Ashford and numerous nieces, nephews and family members.
A celebration of life will be held at 6:30 pm, Friday, January 8, 2016 at Family Choice Funerals & Cremations.
