Richard Ray Swearingen was born in St. Joseph, MO, the first child of Norma Jean Swearingen (nee Richards). He grew up in Maywood, CA and graduated from Huntington Park high school at the top of his class. He was awarded a full scholarship to the University of California at Berkeley which he joyfully accepted, beginning a long run in academia. He earned degrees in History, but immediately after graduating he began to teach arts at the school. With a few years experience he moved on to instruct at the prestigious California Institute of the Arts. While working there he met the love of his life, and agreed to move to the town of Harrison, AR near family. The two lived in the small town and owned and operated a small art gallery just outside of the town square. Richard Swearingen passed away 10 days after his 64th birthday following a massive heart attack at home.
