Calvin R. Swann

December 25, 1948 — July 7, 2023




Calvin Rudolph Swann, 74 of Broadway passed away Friday July 7, 2023. Graveside services will be held at 10:00 am Tuesday at Barbecue Presbyterian Church Cemetery.


Mr. Swann was born in Harnett Co, a son of the late W.J. Swann and Minnie Lee McCormick Swann. Calvin loved the outdoors and could most often be found tending to his cows and other farm animals. After retirement Calvin was often spotted out to eat at various local establishments with his wife of 54 years. Calvin's true joy came from his four grandchildren who he loved unconditionally.  There is not an event that they were involved in that he did not support.


Mr. Swann is survived by his wife, Sandra May Swann; daughter, Amy Swann Smith (Donnie) of Sanford; sons, Kevin Swann (Tara) of Sanford and Adam Swann (LeeAnna) of Broadway; grandchildren, Gavin Swann, Branson Smith, Emily Swann, and Gracelynn Swann; brothers, Billy Swann (Phyllis) and Frankie Swann; sister-in-law, Joy Holder (Tommy); many nieces and nephews.


The family will greet friends following the graveside service and other times at the family residence.
