Wesley Howard Schwab Jr., 65, of 150 Boiling Springs Hwy., Gaffney, SC, passed away Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013, at his residence. Born in East Brunswick, NJ, Mr. Schwab was the husband of Sally Conover Schwab of the home and the son of the late Wesley Howard Sr. and Ida Dunn Schwab. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1966 to 1970 as a sergeant in the civil engineering squadron. He always took the time to thank our veterans for their service to our great country.
Wes was a retired journeyman of the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 9 in New Jersey. He was a welder from 1972 until 2003 and taught welding at the Local 9 Training Center from 1993 until he moved to South Carolina in 2007. Mr. Schwab was also a friend of Bill W's, having been a member in good standing for 32 years until his death.
His love for all of us will be missed and the memories we have will surely bring a warm smile.
In addition to his wife, Mr. Schwab is survived by daughter, Gayle Peninger and husband, Matthew of Gaffney, SC; and a brother, Bruce P. Schwab of Lakewood, NJ.
