To the Sweeney family. Keep the good thoughts of your father in your minds & hearts. I remember my brush with him. It was in Las Vegas when he won his 199th game. I had a sign that said 199. I hollered at him coach 199 coach & he looked up in the stands & grined & said 199. I will truly miss him as a Bulldog fan & I know he touched us all in some way. RIP oh great Coach. I will miss you truly.

Mr. Sweeney seemed like a person who lived his life to the fullest. Now he's asleep hoping to hear the words Lazarus heard when Jesus resurrected him saying "Lazarus come out" meaning from the grave. So for now rest in peace.

To the entire Sweeney Family our sincere condolences from the Kambich Family, Butte, Montana. Although, the families were separated over a thousand miles, we reflect on where it all got started. It started at Butte Central then up to the North Country Kalispell,Montana. Kalispell, where a number of Sweeney and Kambich kids were born. As a Child I remember going to Bozeman and staying at the Sweeney house and Jim taking us over to the college to swim. My father Willie enjoyed playing golf in the 80's, 90's and early 2000. There are far to many stories dating back to the 50's and 60's therefore on behalf of the Kambich Family ( Ceil, Michelle, Steve and Jim)our thoughts and prayers are with all of you June and the Children and grandchildren.
