AGE: 64 • Beachwood

Ron 'Ronnie' Swayze, 64 of Beachwood, NJ, went home to his Heavenly Father, peacefully, surrounded by his family on July 25, 2014. He 'fought the good fight, finished the course and kept the faith'. He was a loving and self-sacrificing husband and father. Ron was born in Irvington and lived in Lincroft before moving to Beachwood. He worked as a chemist for International Flavors and Fragrances in Hazlet for the past 44 years. He was a communicant of St. Joseph's Catholic Church of Toms River where he served as an extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, the Veritas men's group, and he was active in the Flame of Love Catholic Charismatic Prayer Group. Ron was also a member of Trout Unlimited. Ron also served in the Army Reserves. He was loved by so many people, showing Jesus' love to all he met. They were touched and encouraged by the light of the Holy Spirit shining through him. Ron was known to fishermen as an expert angler, often consulted for the perfect fly for different waters.
