Obituary

Harry E. Swan, 91, of Finksburg, Maryland was reunited in heaven with his one true love, Madeline on July 22, 2019. They were married on April 4, 1948.
Born Dec. 15, 1927 on Bloom Road, he lived his entire life on the same property. He was the son of the late Edward F. and Mary E. Swan.
Harry was a WWII Navy Veteran. Returning from the service he worked as a materials handler for Black and Decker, Hampstead Plant until its closing, and then worked as a building maintenance supervisor at Sears in Westminster.
He loved to work with wood and built the house he would raise his family in. Throughout his entire life he had his “projects”. He loved the outdoors and with the family spent vacations camping and exploring the US and Canada. Madeline would plan the route and he would get us there safely. Together he and Madeline attended antique auctions and funded their retirement adventures with the proceeds. He was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church in Westminster.
The memories and strength of the family will continue through their children; daughter Linda Wainer and husband Keith of Salisbury, Neil Swan and wife Diane of Westcliffe, CO, and Curtis Swan and wife Jane of Westminster. His five grandchildren were the light of his life. Brigette Swan and husband Brandon, Allison Brown and her husband Richard, Jennifer Swan, Timothy Swan and Matthew Swan. Allison and Richard blessed him with two Great Grandchildren McKenna and Camden Brown. He is survived by a sister-in-law Dorothy Swan and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by brothers Norman (as an infant) and Melvin Swan and Sister, Pauline Lang.
A life well lived and the legacy of love, faith and humor will be carried on

I met Harry and Madeline when I worked with Madeline at Sears in Westminster in 1984, They were truly two of the dearest people I have ever met. Mad, as I called her, would share stories of their traveling, antiquing and of course their beloved children. We both moved to the new Sears store in the mall and continued to work together for many years. When life took us separate ways we stayed in touch with letters and Christmas cards, sharing stories of our families and life. I was so sad to learn of her passing after it happened and even sadder to learn how Harry passed just recently. I know he is now with his sweetheart. I treasure the time I knew them and will be comforted by the letters we shared over the years. RIP Harry and Mad. God has brought you together in paradise!
