Schwerin, John B. "Jack"
Jack passed away peacefully on June 13, 2008. He is survived by his true love, five caring children, four beloved grandchildren, his loving sister and brother, and too many wonderful friends to count.
He was particularly proud of his 20 years of service in the United States Navy where he honorable served as a Hospital Corpsman and retired as a Senior Chief. His service included tours abroad various naval vessels as well as serving along side fellow United States Marines.
Jack will be remembered for his unbridled spirit for life and for all it had to offer. His smile, heartfelt sense of humor and story telling will always be a gift that he shared with everyone he touched. Jack was a remarkable man who cared deeply for those he loved and welcomed into his life. He had a reputation of putting people at ease and striking up a conversation with any stranger to make a friend. He will be deeply missed, but not forgotten. Jack would want his life to be remembered as a celebration of life, love, happiness and laughter.
