Galen M. Swain

May 16, 1957 - September 9, 2020

    Galen Matthew Swain, age 63, a resident of Waters Rd, Pinetown, passed away on Wednesday,September 9, 2020 after a brief illness.

    Galen was born May 16, 1957 in Washington to D.S. Swain Jr. and Margie Respess Swain. He is survived by a brother, D.S. Swain III of Chocowinity, and a sister Amy Swain of Louisburg, NC. He. was predeceased by his parents, a brother Eric Swain, and a sister Nima Swain.

    Galen was "Galen". If you met him, you were unlikely to forget him. He lived life his own way, uncompromising and unapologetic. He was firm in his opinions and unafraid to express them. Galen liked motorcycles, guns, cars, horses, women, and having beers with his friends. If you were his friend, Galen had a heart of gold. If you were his enemy, you knew it. Galen was very proud of his captain's license and was looking forward to his campaign for county commissioner in the next election cycle. He will be missed.

    A private burial service will be held at the Swain family plot at Oakdale Cemetery.

    On-line condolences may be addressed to the family by visiting www.paulfuneralhome.com.

    Paul Funeral Home & Crematory is honored to serve the Swain family.
