December 23, 1950 – May 12, 2022

 Michael Swire ,71, of Carlyss, LA passed away May 12, 2022, at Houston Methodist Hospital in Houston, TX.

 Michael was born December 23, 1950, to Clarence J. Swire and Dorothy Mae Chasson Harrington. He was a 1970 graduate of Sulphur High School.

In 1995, he began working for the Montgomery County school district and remained there until he retired in 2015. Upon his retirement, he became a “leisure specialist “as he called it. He even had business cards made.

About 4 years ago, he moved back to Sulphur so he could focus on spending more time with his family. During this time back home, he was able to spend more time with his daughters, granddaughter, grand son and 3 great grandsons that he adored so much. He was able to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. He enjoyed road trips, car shows and spending time eating meals with family and friends at Hollier’s and a few of his other favorite places. Food always seemed to be involved when we spent time together.
