Stephen Otis Swim
May 5, 1950 – December 30, 2020
Stephen Otis Swim was born on 5/5/1950 in Norman, OK and left this world peacefully with his family by his side on Wednesday 12/30/2020. Steve was a kind and gentle soul who lived his life writing and making music and was loved by all who knew him. He was ready for this next adventure as he makes his way across the universe. No services are planned at this time, but we are hoping we can get together and have a celebration of life at a later date. Steve was predeceased by his parents, Dan and Idella Swim and his brothers Curtis Swim and Roger Swim. He leaves behind a sister Linda Blanton of Denton, Texas and many nieces and nephews and family and friends that will miss him dearly.

Steve or Nargoe Billeye as the Band was called back in the early 80's will be missed. I played Lead guitar In the Nargoe Billeye band for several years and we played the best and worst gigs. I have many fond memories of playing with Steve he was a solid stand up guy. I don't remember him ever missing a Gig. I am sure he is present for that great Gig in the sky and making beautiful Music. Someone has to sing the White Street Blues up there. I had several favorite Steve Swim Originals but my all time Favs is "The One that Got Away" I still play that tune for People. I guess the Nargoe Billeye Reunion Gig will have to wait. Steve you will be missed

Rest In Peace, my friend.
Steve was the epitome of "cool"! I've had the honor of playing with Steve many times! Many gigs and recordings, of Steve's very original music. Steve taught me so much! Loved that guy from the first time I heard him, at The Deli, in 1980. We were fast friends and remained so ever since. Steve called me "MR. B"..... I always laughed at that! Steve was just the best! There is a big hole in the world, without Mr. Stephen Swim.
Steve Swim was my dear friend and I will miss him.
