Dwayne Raymond Swanson

Dwayne Raymond Swanson

Passed on June 2, 2020

November 25, 1960 – June 2, 2020 I was born to Harry Floyd Swanson and Viola Eleanor Swanson in Winnipeg. Two brothers soon followed with Blair and Randy. Younger life was spent on the road most of the time. Whether it was basic hockey or baseball events or our yearly summer vacation to Banff, Jasper or whatever else. Weekends were also spent travelling to my Mom’s family farm at Geysir, near Arborg. In 1972 we moved to Stonewall and that’s where I fell in love with athletics. From hardball to fastball to soccer to cross country racing to track and field to broomball, but, my first love was always hockey. We had a lot of success in those days and that kind of helped. In 1976, I left for the west to pursue my hockey dreams. After stops in Brandon, B.C., Alberta, I returned home after accumulating a number of great friends and contacts that were invaluable to me throughout my life. In 1988, I met the love of my life, Penny. She was and is a dream. She gives of herself so tirelessly, I sometimes wonder if she’s going to pass out. Penny has completed my life and given me two perfect kids as well. Eric Raymond and Neely Brit are getting ready to graduate in their respective areas and I could not be prouder. Like I said you are both perfect. My years of work at MTS were very gratifying. They allowed me to progress in my job while still playing hockey. I finally retired after 34 years of service. No regrets, no grudges and no ill will to anyone. Hey Penny, WE DID GREAT!! Thanks everyone for the ride! There will be a private family function.


So sorry for your loss thinking of you Love Bob and Judy Vanrobaeys
