Ronnie Swire

November 16, 1950 ~ April 28, 2022

Ronnie Dewey Swire, 71, of Carlyss, LA passed away on April 28, 2022, at a local hospital. Ronnie was born on November 16, 1950, to Joseph “Dewey” and Nellie Swire in Hackberry, LA. 

Ronnie loved collecting guns, competing in shooting matches, and was a proud NRA member. Ronnie worked at the Petroleum Reserve in Hackberry, but his true passion was with the Cameron Parish Sheriff’s Department where he proudly served as a Deputy Sherriff for 32 years. He later became the resource deputy at Hackberry High School where he was loved by all. 

Those left to cherish Mr. Swire’s memory are his children, Sharon Welch, Rebecca “Becky” Knapp and husband Tom, Nicole “Niki” Broussard and husband Jared; one son; 6 grandchildren, Cheyenne Bass, Brittney Knapp, Austin Broussard, Taggart Broussard, Wade Broussard, and Alexandra Broussard; two great grandsons, Brantley Bass and Mason Bass; and one sister, Mary Wooten.  

He is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Darlene Swire; and one brother. 

Ronnie’s daughters wish to express their eternal gratitude for the loyalty and happiness his friends brought to him, especially in his time of need. 

A memorial service will be held at 1:00 PM Wednesday, May 4, 2022, at the Hackberry Community Center. Visitation will be from 10:00 AM until the time of service. The family asks that all who attend bring fond memories and laughter.

Memories Timeline


  1. I've Known Ronnie since 1980. I was part of the Parsons-Gilbane Joint venture for Phase II if the SPR. I worked with Ronnie and the other operators until transferring to Big Hill in 1997. He and I had many hours of talking and sharing laughs and information. He stopped by our house on Hwy 27 just before retiring from the Sherriff's Dept. I'll miss him but I'll also remember our times at the SPR.
