Dean E. Svoboda Obituary
Svoboda Dean E. Svoboda, passed away on April 18, 2017. We can know that Dean is truly happy again. Finally he has seen his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, face to face and has been reunited with his beautiful wife. He was preceded in death by his beautiful wife Arlene Sue (Smith) Svoboda, as well as by his parents Clarence and Mable Svoboda, his in-laws Ernest and Gladys Smith and his brother-in-law E. Samuel Smith. He is survived by his three sons, Joseph (Christina) Svoboda, John Svoboda, Dave (Amy) Svoboda; his three daughters, Kathi (Thomas) Parker, Judith (Brent) Curtiss, Lisa (John) Fox; 20 grandchildren, Anna (Tyler) Shoaf, Thomas J. Parker, Natasha (Gary) Kim, Andru Svoboda, Abigail Curtiss, Cameron Svoboda, Aaron Svoboda, Noah Fox, Moriah Curtiss, Connor Svoboda, Enoch Fox, Christopher Parker, Christiana Curtiss, Levi Fox, Miriam Svoboda, Leah Svoboda, Bethany Fox, Nathaniel Curtiss, Josiah Fox, Jacob Fox, and two great grandsons, Ezra Shoaf and Abel Shoaf. Dean was a unique individual, and he loved his family and friends dearly. He was a one on one person. Dean grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. He attended the Ohio State University, where he received his bachelor's, masters and doctorate degrees in Electrical Engineering. He worked in the OSU Electro Science Lab for over 20 years, much of that time in charge of the Datacraft, the Lab's main frame computer. He later worked for other computer companies. He preferred to program computers in "machine language". Dean and Susi also owned their own computer company, D & S Systems, where Dean consulted using his self-designed and self-built computer. After Living Hope Fellowship, a church he had belonged to for decades, became small he became the lay pastor of this little church for many years. He loved those who came there. Dean's passions were studying and teaching the Bible, programming and working with computers and flying. Another of his passions was keeping things going. He enjoyed walking in the woods, keeping plants alive, giving his ideas on politics, helping people and researching many different topics. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations may be made to Faith Mission Homeless Shelter and Service, 245 North Grant Ave., Columbus, Ohio 43215. A visitation will be held at SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL, 6699 N. High St., Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 6-8 p.m. and Friday, April 28, 2017 from 10-11 a.m. with a funeral service directly following at 11 a.m. Please visit our online guestbook at www.schoedinger.com to leave your condolences.
