MASURY, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Robert Allen Schweiss, Jr. of Masury, Ohio passed from this life into eternal rest at 5:56 p.m. Sunday, September 11, 2022, while a patient in the O’Brien Memorial Health Care Center, Masury, following a brief illness. He was 66.

Robert was born September 20, 1955, in Sharon, Pennsylvania, a son to Robert Allen Schweiss, Sr. and Betty (McInturff) Schweiss.
