Obituary of Francis Lee Swillinger

Please share a memory of Francis to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
F. Lee Swillinger, born December 9, 1928 and known by his nickname from birth as "Speedy"passed away on May 1, 2022. Preceded by his loving wife of 68 years, JoAnn (nee Pring) Swillinger, his Little Jo. He will be missed by his "girls": daughters Linda Eatore and Kat Reinhardt, favorite granddaughter Farah Foss, grandsons Richard Foss and Tyler Reinhardt, two great-grandchildren, Kase and Kyla Reinhardt and his faithful dog companions, Cleo and Charlie. Speedy grew up in Kanawha City WV and lived in CA, OH and NJ as an executive in the glass industry. During his career he traveled the world and invented and received multiple patents for his work. Upon retiring as CEO of Denton Glass and Vacuum in 1995 he moved back to "Almost Heaven" WV. For those who knew him well, we will most miss his sense of humor. Speedy never met a stranger. He will be laid to rest as John Denver sang "to the place I belong , WV." . In lieu of flowers, please donate to Alzheimer's Association.
