Victor F. Swyden II Obituary
Victor F. Swyden II Victor F. Swyden II, 69, passed away peacefully early Sunday morning with his wife Susan by his side. He was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the Kansas City Metropolitan area his entire life. He graduated from Center High School and then went on to graduate from Rockhurst University with a BSBA degree and thereafter whizzed through the tough exams to qualify as a certified public accountant. As an entrepreneur, Vic started his tax preparation and tax planning business over 30 years ago and served hundreds of clients not only in Kansas City but also in other cities and states. He was meticulous in his organization and record keeping, to the extent he could have taught courses on how to keep records, and strategies to develop and retain clients. Once people met Vic, not only were they his clients but they became lifelong friends. He was a member of the Kansas Society of CPAs and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Victor became the patriarch of his American Lebanese family after the passing of his father, Victor F. Swyden, a former Kansas City councilman. Victor was a proud husband to his wife Susan, father to his son Nick (of the home)), and son to his mother, Vivian, all of whom survive him. He is also survived by his daughters, Christine Stevens (Don) and Julie McConnell (Darrin), sisters Patty Sullivan (Bob ), Jan Reed (Barry), and his four grandchildren Emily, Hanna, Brayden, and Nathan. Vic loved baseball. He played from the age of 7 in 3&2 and continued playing until his sixties. He spent 20 years playing in the MSBL with teams that included as teammates many retired Royals players. He played with passion and pride. He was a tough and fiery competitor. #14 will be missed. Vic was active in his son's scouting program and was proud to attend Nick's Eagle Scout Review. Vic was also a Rotarian. He served as President of his chapter where he made lasting friendships. Memorial service (no visitation, no burial) will be held on Wednesday, December 12th, at 11:00 AM. Reception to follow. Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 7851 W 119th, Overland Park, KS 66213. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Holy Cross Lutheran Church.
