SANBORNTON – David C. Swain, 80, last dairy farmer in Sanbornton, died on Monday, December 25, 2017, at St. Francis Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center, Laconia. His room was full of family, friends, and lots of love.

David was born on July 13, 1937, at Laconia Hospital, son of the late Frank B. and Josephine (Woodman) Swain. 

David is survived by his wife of 56 years, Elaine (Dearborn) Swain and their four children, Robin Simons and her husband, Ben, of New York, Matthew Swain and his wife, Rachel, of Sanbornton, Elizabeth Keefe, of Sanbornton and Daniel Swain and his wife, Julie, of Tilton; 12 grandchildren, Christopher, Randi and Emily Simons, of New York, Nicole, Tyler, Laura, David, Joseph and Peter Swain, of Sanbornton, Ryan Keefe, of Concord and Johnathan and Hannah Swain, of Tilton; David's brother, Ret. Col. Don W. Swain and his wife, Mary, of Williamsburg, Va.; nieces, Kristi Kotlarchuk and her husband, Steve, of Alaska and Lisa Todl and her husband, Al, of Virginia Beach, Va. and families.

On July 15, 2017, friends and family sponsored a "birthday party" - benefit for David. A "celebration of life" with David enjoying one and all. The Swain family is ever indebted and extremely grateful for all the love and kindness.

David's wishes were to be a donor, cremated and buried in the family cemetery on his farm. A springtime gathering of family and friends is planned, when the robin birds return. 

We, Elaine and family, are eternally grateful to the staff at St. Francis for the loving care, encouragement and comfort they gave David for the last six months. He was happy to be there. Thank you!
