November 15, 1970 – December 19, 2013
Robert Swan, known fondly as “Bobby,” age 43, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 19, 2013.
Bobby was born in Wilmington, Delaware on November 15, 1970, and was a son of Ralph Carello Jr. and Matilda Smallwood Carello. In his youth, he worked as a landscaper and swimming pool installer.
Bobby was a former member of the Minquadale Fire Company. A charming and outgoing individual by nature, he never missed an opportunity to show his flirtatious and cheeky personality. Bobby adored animals of all kinds and loved the thrill of driving sports cars – the faster, the better. Above all else, he will be remembered by all as a loving son, brother, uncle, and friend.
In addition to his parents, Bobby is survived by his brothers, Ralph Carello, III and wife Denice and Michael Carello; sisters, Renee Grajewski and husband Mark and Tara Susi and husband Peter; 9 nieces; and 9 nephews.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Bobby’s caregiver, Ritz Rodriguez for all of the compassionate and loving care she provided during his illness.
