SCHWARTZ, John Edward

After a long battle with cancer, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Edward Schwartz, at age 68. Born in Chicago, IL, John was a resident of Tucson for 45 years. He is preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Charlotte Schwartz. He is survived by his loving wife, Patti, and their son, Jesse, as well as his children, Jennifer and Kyle (mother Pat Dandurand); grandsons, Jayden and Jordan, and his sister, Elizabeth Jardin (Craig). We wish to thank all of John's caring friends and family in Tucson and in Dallas, who meant so much to him. John loved music, movies, his red corvette, and especially his family. He was so proud of his son, Jesse, who spent the last few months by his father's side, loving and supportive, and his grandson, Jayden, who he spent so much time with. Special thanks to Faith Presbyterian Hospice in Dallas, Texas, for wonderful care. John is feeding the birds and bunnies in Heaven now. "Be still and know that I am God" Selah. Psalm 46:10. Burial will be at East Lawn Cemetery in Tucson, Arizona at a later date, Pastor Sam Rhodes officiating. Arrangements by EAST LAWN PALMS MORTUARY.
