Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
James Thomas Swain, II was born October 19, 1952 in Columbus, Georgia to the late Jim T. and Katie Watson Swain. Mr. Swain was a 1970 graduate of Jordan Vocational High School and a graduate of Columbus College. Mr. Swain was always a very active runner until his health began to deteriorate. He retired from Kinetic (TIC) Credit Union after 34 years of service. He had many joys in life and was known to be quite the jokester with his witty sense of humor. He was an avid Georgia Bulldogs fan and could be heard often cheering “Go Dawgs” on any fall Saturday they were on the field. He was a devoted man of God, which was also felt in his quiet strength. He was a long-time member of Calvary Baptist Church.
James Thomas Swain, II passed away on November 19, 2020 at Magnolia Manor at the age of 68 after a long hard battle with Alzheimers. He was a genuine and good man and a role model of a good father, friend, and follower of God.
Survivors include his children, Katie Swain, Andrew (Heather) Swain, and Aaron Swain; sister, Cheryl Hopper; beloved grandchildren, Tommy Walden, John Ryan Walden, Evan Walden, Bailey Walden, and Reagan Walden; nieces, Tracy Boyd Britton (Angelia), Tammy Wright (Marcus), Shirlene Newsome (Eddie), and Tara Higginbotham Dietrich (Scott); nephew, David Higginbotham (Bridgett), mother of his children and life-long friend, Cindy Saines; special cousin, Belinda Hemby Lanier (Hippie); and his special feline companion, Rosie; and a host of friends and church family.
