St. Clair Theatre Guild board member Robert “Bob” Swain died on Sunday, April 21 at the age of 90. Bob was a member of the Guild’s “Susquatch” vocal group and was a generous supporter of his adopted community, especially the arts.
Bob was born in New Jersey but lived in several places around the U.S. as he pursued his career in the plastics industry. He was an innovator, manufacturer and leader in that industry, becoming an honorary member of the Plastics Pioneers Association and being elected to the Plastics Hall of Fame in 2009.
He moved to Michigan in 2005 and quickly became involved in the St. Clair community. In addition to the Guild, Bob was also active with Kids In Distress Services (K.I.D.S.) and the Rotary Club.
Bob’s obituary is available here. A remembrance gathering will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2019 in the Marysville Funeral Home, 1200 Michigan Avenue, Marysville, MI with a Memorial Service following at 12:00 p.m. A reception will immediately follow at the Voyageur Restaurant, 525 S. Riverside Ave. St. Clair MI until 4:00pm.
