ROBERT EARL SCHWANBECK
Robert “Bob” Earl Schwanbeck gained his “forever wings” on Friday, April 27, 2018 in Bullhead City, Ariz. He was born on February 21, 1933 in a home in Ashfork, Ariz. to Herman and Dorothy.
Bob served in the Korean War for the USAF under SAC 67th BOMB SQ., and was a proud lifetime member of VFW POST 10005. He was a founding member of the B.P.O.E. in Bullhead City. A lifelong Arizonian, Bob loved to be outdoors. He could be found fishing, hunting, exploring, or just tinkering around. He was a humble, honest, hardworking man, who made deals with a shake of hand and held you by the words you said.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Herman and Dorothy; brother, Louis; Brenda Huff; and most recently son, Brett.
He is survived by his children, Brian, Derek, Robin, April and Loren Schwanbeck; Diana, Gerald and Daniel Huff; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Services will be held at 12:30pm on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at Desert Lawn Mortuary Mohave Valley, for family and close friends.
All are welcomed to a celebration of life at 2:00pm at the VFW Post 10005.
In honor of Bob’s love for his country, please dress in red, white, and blue.
In lieu of flowers, family requests a donation to The Air Force Museum Foundation, P.O. Box 1903, Wright-Patterson Air-Force Base, Ohio 45433.
