Robert Gerard Jaszewski was born December 30, 1955 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, during a period of American peace and prosperity. Growth in industry and the job market gave workers an opportunity to build homes and start families that launched the baby boom era.
Bobby was the sixth child of Andrew J. and Florence (Graczyk) Jaszewski. Along with his siblings—Michael, Patricia, Janice, Sue, Joan and Mary—he grew up on North Bartlett Avenue and attended Saints Peter and Paul Catholic grade school.
To say the least, Bobby was an active child. Many a time, his parents found themselves at the hospital emergency room, where Bobby was being treated for various injuries. He liked being outdoors and often traveled with family and friends to Northern Wisconsin for hunting and fishing. Having pursued martial arts from his youth, Bobby attained the level of black belt, the highest degree of competency.
After graduating from Riverside High School in Milwaukee, Bobby took a job with Advance Transportation as a dock worker. Unfortunately, a back injury and subsequent surgery left him unable to work, and the pain and discomfort he endured made life difficult for a man who was used to physical labor and challenging sport.
Bobby died March 11, 2013 at his residence in Shorewood, Wisconsin, not far from his boyhood home. Even as his family and friends mourn Bobby, they will remember his disciplined attitude and rugged spirit.
Robert Gerard Jaszewski, age 57, was preceded in death by his parents Andrew and Florence Jaszewski and his sister Joan Jaszewski. Dear brother of Michael (Myrtle) Jaszewski, Patricia Jaszewski, Janice (Dave) Hallett, Sue Jaszewski, and Mary (Gary) Gorman. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
