HOOKSETT – Robert “Sweed” S. Swiderski, age 78, a resident of Hooksett, NH and formerly of Lowell, passed away on February 8, 2020 at Lowell General Hospital, surrounded by love. Born in Lowell on April 5, 1941, he was a son of the late William and Mildred (Guild) Swiderski. He was the husband of Frances “Franny” J. (Burke) Swiderski with whom he had been happily married to for fifty years this past September. They celebrated by taking their bucket list trip for the first time ever to Las Vegas where they saw the production “The Beatles Love,” by Cirque du Soleil. Franny said Bob spoke to her often of that trip, saying it was one of the best memories of his life, celebrating with his love. The Beatles and many other artists of that time helped soothe Bob as he departed this world.
Bob was employed for many years by the City of Lowell Parks and Recreational Department having retired as a Park Foreman. He enjoyed working in his yard, watching daytime television shows, making his famous spaghetti sauce for Wednesday family dinners and above all, spending time with his grandchildren. He also had a sweet and tender love of animals, especially dogs. It began with his boyhood dog, Sandy, and continued up through several “grand-dogs,” leaving behind is beloved Gus, who loved to visit Nana and Papa’s house.
Surviving him in addition to his wife are two sons and two daughters in law, Robert and Kimberly Swiderski of Hooksett and Shawn and Jaimee Swiderski of Lowell; four grandchildren, Steven, Owen, Reed and Tristan; a brother and sister in law, Bill and Judy Swiderski of AZ; and nieces and nephews.
He was also the brother of the late Jane Friscino.
In accordance with his wishes, there will be no services.
