Jay Harold Swain, 81, passed from this life on October 14, 2013 while surrounded by his loving family.

Jay was born in Salt Lake City on September 2, 1932 to Harold Levond and Rayta Petersen Swain.

He married Annaliza Ruth Hoemke on June 8, 1951 in the Salt Lake Temple.

He worked for Deseret Transportation for over thirty years. He loved to water ski, garden, and repair anything that was broken, from cars and trucks, to fences and roofs, to hearts and spirits.

Most of all, he loved to spend time with his family. It was that love and the priesthood blessings he received that kept him here longer than his cancer wanted him to stay.

He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served in many, many callings including Bishop, most recently serving as Stake Patriarch and a temple worker.

Jay is survived by his wife of sixty-two years, Annaliza ("Missus S"), and his children, Barbara (Arnold) Grundvig, Deborah (Dennis) Brown, Sharon Clarke, Chris (Darla) Swain, and Julie (Thomas) Otto; along with eighteen grandchildren and twenty-five great-grandchildren, ALL of whom are following his example as faithful members of the Church.

The family wishes to thank the doctors and expert staff at Huntsman Cancer Center for the extraordinary care they gave our family patriarch. They shared in our grief, with their own tears, at his passing.

Funeral services were held Saturday, October 19, 2013at 11:00 a.m. in the Granger Fifteenth Ward Chapel, 2835 South 2855 West, West Valley City. Friends called on Friday, October 18th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at McDougal Funeral Home, 4330 South Redwood Road, Taylorsville, and at the church, Saturday from 10:00-10:45 a.m.

Interment at the Taylorsville Memorial Park Cemetery, 4585 South Redwood Road, Taylorsville.
