Plan Ahead

Swinford, Wyman Griffin


Wyman Griffin Swinford, age 86, passed away in Lewisville, TX on June 14, 2021. He was born on December 20, 1934, to Emmitt and Sybil (Hays) Swinford in Linden, TX. He was a 1952 graduate of Linden-Kildare High School. He went on to serve in the US Army, stationed in Germany post WWII. Upon returning, he trained in HVAC and was employed with the US General Service Administration (GSA) in Tyler, TX until his retirement in 1991. His most meaningful work came after retirement in the 25+ years he traveled with the Volunteer Christian Builders to assist churches across the country to start or complete their construction projects.

Wyman loved family above all else and lived life to the fullest. He never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a smile. He saw the very best in people and gave the very best of himself. He lived his life to enter His kingdom and no doubt the angels opened the doors for him…he was a good and faithful servant.

He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Stacie and Carl Bukowsky of Highland Village, TX, his son and daughter-in-law, Wes and Lisa Swinford of Burleson, TX, and grandchildren: Zachary and Tanner Swinford, Caleb, Kristen and Ava Bukowsky, Kara, and Ashton Swinford, as well as three great grandsons: Braxton Swinford and Knox and Slade Swinford.

He is also survived by his sister, Jannette Smith of Donna, TX, as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins, and countless friends.

Wyman was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Jack and Hubert Swinford, his wife Glenna Swinford, and his son Stewart Swinford.

Funeral services will take place at Caves Springs Baptist Church and Cemetery on Sunday, July 18 at 2pm with burial following immediately afterward.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made “In honor of Wyman Swinford” to Volunteer Christian Builders:

    I was raised in the samew community as Wyman and went to school with him at Linden . Knew his entire family of Emmit, Sybil, brother Jack, Huberty and sister Janette. So sorry to hear about his passing.

    There’s a huge hole in my heart in losing this most wonderful man. Everyone that knew him also knew he had a heart bigger than Texas. Until our heavenly reunion, Happy Trails!

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
