Go Back

Eric H. Swansson


I was born in San Francisco on July 4, 1926, and I thought it was the greatest place, until I started dreaming of outer space.

Summers held some of my best memories. With my dad at the helm and I by his side, we sailed the beautiful, unpredictable seas. This was tradition until I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley.

At that time, my dreams came true - an electrical engineer I would be, working in the aerospace industry. I traveled the world and had a great life.

My two greatest blessings were my children and my first wife. I have no regrets for my life was truly blessed.

Eric Swansson died Sunday, Jan. 1. He is survived by one son, David Swansson, 53, of Bandera.
