Robert Caswell Obituary

Robert Lewis Caswell died peacefully on May 13, 2024. He spent almost 93 years with us, born to his parents Earl and Josephine (Tailford) Caswell on May 20, 1931.


Bob had a love of the outdoors and athletics. He played football for Swanton High School, where he graduated from in 1949. After graduating, he went right to work for his father’s business, Earl’s Auto Parts, and eventually ran the business. After retirement from the family business, “Bob worked nine years in the maintenance department for the Village of Holland.”


In grade school, he met the love of his life, Carol Reno, and on June 8, 1949, the childhood sweethearts were wed, enjoying almost 75 years together. Family and hard work were at the core of Bob’s identity, but he also enjoyed gardening, hunting Morrel mushrooms, bowling, golf, Ohio State Football, and all Cleveland sporting teams. He excelled at oval track racing in his younger years; and was even a shuffleboard champion!


Food held a special place in Bob’s heart. He could eat just about anything! His favorites were a good steak and any homemade dessert he could find.


Preceding in death were his parents; brothers, Earl “Sonny” Caswell Jr., and Richard Caswell; children, Robert Caswell Jr., and Debra Jones.


Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Carol (Reno) Caswell; children, Charles (Cindy) Caswell, Linda (Jesse) Limon, Lizabeth (Rob) Conboy, 12 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren; sister Florence Wyman, son-in-law, Jim Jones, and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.


A visitation will be held at Walker Funeral Home, Springfield-Holland Chapel (7438 Airport Hwy.) on Monday, May 20, 2024, from 4 pm – 8 pm. A Catholic Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, at Our Lady of Lourdes (6149 Hill Ave.) at 11 am with an hour of visiting beginning at 10 am. Interment will follow at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery.
