Donald SWORDS Obituary
SWORDS, Jr., Donald Edward "Poppy Don" Swords - Donald Edward Swords, Jr. "Poppy Don" born October 9, 1952 in Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia passed on September 17, 2017. Beloved husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, son, brother, brother-in-law, nephew, uncle, cousin, friend, mentor, and union brother. Don is survived by his loving wife Darlene Davis Swords of 46 years, their 2 sons, Brian (Shannon) Swords of Loganville, Clint (Brittany) Swords of Hull, his 4 grandchildren, Haley Swords, Gavin Swords, Connor Swords, and Miles Swords, his father and mother Donald Edward and Jean Autry Swords, Sr. of Snellville, brothers, David Swords of Snellville, Kenneth (Ann) Swords of Grayson and Keith Swords of Snellville. His service will be held at 4 PM on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 in the Snellville Chapel of Tim Stewart Funeral Home. Elders Silas Ford & Gus Harter will officiate. Don's warm charismatic personality and wit made him fast friends to those he came in to contact with. He was a proud member of Local Union #72 Plumbers, Pipefitters and Service Technicians for 46 years. Don loved his Local and its members. He loved to fish and would wait all day for a bite. The man loved being a home DJ and playing music for his guests. Don looked forward to fall and watching the Yellow Jackets play football on Saturdays and the Falcons on Sundays. Don loved baseball and softball, if anyone wanted to talk baseball, they got an earful. "It is not the length of life, but the depth of life." His lifetime was not a great length, but he certainly made up for that in great depth and the legacy of family and friends he leaves behind. "Poppy Don" will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him!! Flowers are accepted or memorial donations may be made to: Kindred Hospice IPU @ Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center: 1199 Prince Ave. Suite H 3rd Floor Athens, GA 30606. The family will receive friends from 2-4 PM on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at Tim Stewart Funeral Home: 2246 Wisteria Dr. Snellville, GA 30078. Please leave online condolences at
