First met Swaney B in 1970 at ChristChurch, NZ. We were flying the “Deep Freeze mission to the Antarctic. We both ended up in 21AF Stand/ Eval at McGuire AFB, NJ. In the’70’s and we were good friends for close to 50 Years. I loved him like a brother. RIP Swaney B. Prayers for Gerry & the family.

I had the extreme pleasure to work with Swannie when I was at 21AF and the 6th as I worked closely with the squadron. He was so helpful to anyone who asked him for help or assistance. He parted loads of his knowledge to many a person. He always had a smile on his face and spring in his step and he loved to tell stories and joke.

My deepest sympathy to the Brown Family.

God Bless you ALL.

Swannie was a great mentor to me at McGuire AFB 1978-83. We flew together with Major General Tom Sadler . Swannie and Mac Mccommons were very influential to my Air Force career. My last visit with Swannie was 19 Jun 21 and we had a great lunch in his screen porch with his lady friend, Gerry. We told old stories and laughed a lot. I was looking forward to seeing him again this year in June when I would be in the area again. I send my condolences to the Brown Family and his friend Gerry. I will miss him. We had such great times flying around the world.
