William SWAN

SWAN, William James "Whipper"
Born May 26,1935 With great sadness we share with you the passing of William "Whipper" James Swan. Whipper has finished his challenging fifteen year journey with Lou Gehrigs ( ALS ) and will now enjoy his new life with Jesus. During his final quarter in the fight against his opponent, Lou Gehrigs (ALS), Whipper was blessed to say goodbye to his two sons Michael and Mark before returning home where he passed holding hands with his wife Toni of fifty years and his daughter Monique (Miki). Whipper will be so missed by all his friends and family, especially his loving grandchildren and his two daughters-in-law Patty and Zoe. He will be remembered for his love of gathering with friends and family and enjoying stories and laughter. Whipper was a warrior on and off the field; a man who knew that success was the result of commitment, determination and passion for those ventures he engaged in. He only wanted the very best for his family and demonstrated this through his love and the decisions he made to make a better life for them. Whipper may not be here with us anymore, but his spirit will always be OUR WIND BENEATH OUR WINGS forever. Godspeed Whipper and may you enjoy your golf game in Heaven. Swing Easy -love your family.
