Kevin Arthur Swan, 58 of Givens Hot Springs area passed away on January 3, 2016 at home surrounded by his daughter, family and friends after a long battle with cancer.
He was born on September 10,1957 in Yerington, Nevada to Donald Charles Swan(born in Idaho) and Bettie Lou Young (born in Missouri).

Kevin loved sports and while in school he participated in basketball, football, track and wrestling.He continued after high school by watching all sports he could on t.v. but also encouraged his niece (Carrie) in track, following his nephew, Charles Swan while he played football in high school. He was Charles biggest fan. In addition he loved to go hunting and fishing and camping and a yearly hunting and fishing trip occurred for years.
