Kerry Swan

November 13, 1956 — December 19, 2019

Mr. Kerry Swan was born November 13, 1956 in Bessmer, Alabama, the son of Hoover and Lillie Swan. He fell asleep on Thursday, December 19, 2019 at the age of 63 years.

Kerry lived in Saginaw, Michigan most of his life besides a brief residence in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Saginaw High School, “Class of 1974.” After graduation, Kerry completed a year of studies at Delta College, majoring in Political Science. He was a faithful member of New Covenant Christian Center under the leadership of Dr. Ron Frierson.

Kerry had an entrepreneurial spirit and founded two construction companies, Tin and Wood Construction and Swank Builders. He was self-employed most of his life after working in the plant and as a contractor at the VA Hospital early on in his career. His hands were skilled and blessed with the ability to build and fix anything.

Kerry was strong-willed, kind-hearted and a family man who loved his kids, as well as all his grandchildren. He will truly be missed, yet we find comfort in knowing he is now resting in a building not made by hands.

Kerry was preceded in death by his parents, Hoover and Lillie Swan.

He leaves a lifetime of memories with his former spouse, Karen Swan; children, Shontell Beasley, Dallas, Texas; son, Kerrington (Ma’Kyla) Swan, Saginaw, Michigan; stepdaughter, Kandria Richardson, Saginaw, Michigan; grandchildren, Chaun’terria Watson, Terrianna Pippins, DaMazia Gaines, Andre Williams, Jr., all of Dallas, Texas, Amari Richardson, Kingston, Ma’Ki, Ki’Air, Kerrington Swan II, all of Saginaw, Michigan, Armariyaun Richardson, Japan ; great-grandchildren, Dakota Charles, Terrion Young, Chloe Pippins; sisters, Rita Swan, Dallas, Texas, Kim Swan, Dayton, Ohio, Dionne Swan, Saginaw, Michigan; Milton Swan, Saginaw, Michigan, Greg Swan, Kent, Washington, Jeff (Rochelle) Swan, Martinsburg, West Virginia; niece, Takira Swan; nephews, Sterling Nelson, Ken Swan, Kevin Swan, Greg Minor; many cousins, other relatives and friends, including special cousin Terry Shephard and mother of his first child, Bridgette Beasley.

The family would like to express special thanks to Ivan E. Phillips and the Staff of Paradise Funeral Chapel.
