Obituary for Edward Bruce Swearingen
Montgomery – Edward Bruce Swearingen passed away July 16, 2010, in Houston, Texas from infection as a complication of leukemia. He was born Nov. 15, 1948, in Washington, D.C. to Paul A. and Minnie H. Swearingen, both deceased. He grew up in Tucson, AZ, and graduated from Univ of Arizona. He was a veteran of the United States Army, serving in Vietnam in the late 1960s. He has worked in telecommunications, both nationally and internationally, for 35 years, the most recent 16 years in the oil and gas industry. At the time of his death he was working for Fluor Corporation in Sugar Land, Texas. He is survived by his wife, Melinda Arceneaux Swearingen of Richmond, TX and Montgomery Center; his daughter, Tonya Kushner of Beaverton, OR and two step-sons, John G. E. Nicholls of St. Albans and Andrew A.A. Nicholls of Amherst, MA. He is also survived by two grandsons, Benjamin Kushner and Henry Kushner and his sister and brother, Dolores Hadley of Berkley Springs, WV and Rod Swearingen of Arlington, VA. He did not suffer fools well, but he honored friendships as sacred things. He helped the helpless and was a devoted Christian. He was tenacious in serving his country and he loved and provided for his family. In all things he was steadfast. He went too young and will be greatly missed. A service will be held at Pratt Hall in Montgomery, VT on October 23 at 9:00 A.M. Burial will be at dusk in Montgomery Center Cemetery. Messages of condolence are welcome at
