Harold Alexander Swaun “Harry”

On June 1st, 2019, twenty five years to the day of the passing of his wife, Pat, Harry and Pat are reunited following Harry’s passing. He passed peacefully at Yale New Haven Hospital with his family at his side. Brother John, daughter Linda, son in law Ron, son Phillip, grandson Michael, granddaughter Jamie, and nephew Artie were all with him. Grandchildren Jack, Sarah, Kristen, and great grandson Connor and grand dog Rookie were all there in spirit.

Harry was, and always will, be a pillar to the town of Clinton and an icon of the Clinton sports community. He touched so many lives with his selfless efforts. Always instilling a sense of confidence, fair play, and participation through the numerous teams he coached, managed, and kept score for through his extraordinary yet simple life. His dedication to the Clinton Park and Rec Department and The Clinton Little League will forever be preserved by his four plus decades of service and commitment to the youth of the town of Clinton.

Harry will be deeply missed not only by the town of Clinton, but mostly by his family, as he was our pillar and dedicated his life to ensuring that his family was always taken care of and always encouraged us to be the best we could be. On the court, the field, or at home, he was truly a great man.

Calling hours will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 2pm to 6pm at Swan Funeral Home, located at 80 East Main St., Clinton.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in his honor to the Clinton Park and Rec Department or the Harry Swaun/Clinton Little League because “EVERYBODY PLAYS”.

Mr. Swaun was a great person with a huge heart. He would always come to my softball games and cheer me on growing up. Sending lots of love to his family.

So many late little league nights at the concession stand we always burnt a dog at the end of the night to save for Harry!
So many times he would be playing basketball ball behind Joel with all ages of boys and girls !!
So many Clinton family days at the town beach handing out the popcorn !
Harry you were a gentleman and friend and a truly great man and the people of Clinton were so lucky to have you !
Rest easy - you will be remembered!

Harry gave so much of his time to others so others could "play ball". Baseball, basketball, and all the other sports, the athletes in Clinton had an opportunity to participate because of his sacrifices to assist every level of Clinton sports. Those athletes also gained the experiences that would guide their lessons of life. Our condolences to his friends and family.
