In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a brother, Carl Svenson; a sister, Mary “Tilly” Reynolds; and grandchildren, James Barker, Timothy Stone, and Christianna Scruggs; and a daughter-in-law, Wendy Barker.

Love and condolences to all the family. Uncle Bob/ Pork was always a favorite among nieces and nephews! Such great memories. And loved the nicknames he gave us, even when they were less than flattering! (Crisco), but very blessed to have had one bestowed. Always in my heart, Uncle Bob.
