Not sure what to say?

I don't know where this year has gone, we have missed you and thought of you often. With our love to Grandma Sonie and your memory, Tina, Danny, Anthony, and Jarrod

I was thinking of Mr. Swartz just the other day and tried to look him up online. Unfortunately I discovered this obituary. Jim Swartz was the finest teacher I had. Ever. Period. A great loss to his family, friends, and all the students he inspired throughout his career. Rest in peace sir.

Ive always enjoy being in youre office when got into trouble knowing you for years an of course granddaughter well my love goes out to family we will miss you alot

My sympathy for your loss. Mr. Swartz was my 6th grade teacher and had a huge impact on my life.

So sorry to hear of Mr. Swartz's passing. He will always have a place in my heart. Sixth grade at Westwings was one of the best learning experiences of my education. He taught us to think for ourselves. He was a great teacher who left his imprint on my heart and mind. Rest in peace Jim.

My condolences to the Swartz family. Mr. Swartz was a great teacher. I was in his 6th grade class at VAFB '76 and I hated to leave mid-year when my father retired. I will always remember him.

Condolences to the family. However, Jim was a wonderful person and will always be remembered as such !!

He was such an amazing teacher/principal and will be greatly missed.. Prayers going out to the family

Mr. Swartz was the best principal anyone could ask for. I attented Los Berros all of my years and Mr. Swartz was such a fun principal. As kids we would get in line for him to perform magic tricks and pull quarters out of our ears, and then tell us to wash behind our ears so he can get the quater. He was always so fun. I will always remember him. My thoughts and love go out to his family.
