I worked with Mr. Schwab when I started out as a young apprentice mortician. I always admired his calm demeanor and compassionate approach toward families. He was a very kindly gentleman. He also made me howl with laughter many times. Great guy. Rest easy, Truman. God Bless.

I am so sorry to hear of Truman’s passing. My parents, Janet and Ed Franey, enjoyed a wonderful friendship with Lisa and Truman during their years together at Charlestown Retirement Community. I remember the Schwab’s hospitality when my husband and I first starting attending Chapelgate Church years ago. We will keep your family in our prayers.

Mr. Schwab and his wife were wonderful people. They made my family feel so welcomed when we starting attending Chapel Hill Church back in the early 70s. Mr. and Mrs. Schwab used to buy us Easter dresses - I'll never forget that. Mr. Schwab was a true gentleman. There aren't many like him. I will always remember him with gratitude and fondness.

Our condolences on your loss. I first met Truman Schwab in 1965 when I was 23 yrs.old & my father was laid out at Schwabs on Old Frederick Rd. He was kind man who made you feel at ease during your time of sorrow. Through the years, it seemed our paths crossed several times during the loss of several of my husband's family (the Neville's from Irvington). He never changed, always the kind man who remembered your face and offered comfort.
May he rest in peace in God's loving arms.
