N.Lincoln Avenue was part of Mr. Swayze's walks around town. Whenever he was walking past my house and I was out working in the yard, he would stop and we'd chat...about the heat, doctor's orders, the dog, yardwork, and Newtown as it was 'back in the day.' Then he'd walk on and I'd get back to my weeding or pruning with the pleasant feeling of having spent a few pleasant moments with a friend and another 'old Newtowner.' I'm so grateful for those moments.

My sympathy to all the family for your loss of this dear man.

Dear Barbara and Family,

I do remember you from my days at St. Andrew's. It has been a long time, but I just wanted to extend my sincere sympathy on the death of your dear husband and father.

I am not sure if you remember me, but the intention is sincere.

May Wilson rest in peace.

I loved him to death but now he is gone. please pray for him that he is doing well. i remember when he would take me on his tractor. I loved that so much. I hope to see you all at the funeral.

I am very saddened to hear of Wills passing.My deepest sympathy for Barbara and family. I provided fertilizing treatments to Wills lawn for the past 10 years to keep him doing what he loved to do most...MOW. I will miss most being invited in after each scheduled treatment to sit at the kitchen table with Will and just chit chat about his family and mine. It makes me feel good inside to have those memories to reflect back on. I'll miss you Will.

With my deepest sympathies to the Swayze family and with very warm regards to Barbara, I want to express my sadness over the passing of Will.
My friend died this week. Will was not ready to leave this world and I damn sure was not ready to lose him. But he's gone and I will miss our daily talks over coffee.
I first met Wilson in front of Starbucks in Newtown. He sat there with Mike Donovan as I strolled up

When I was younger, I remember Uncle Will as having a good spirit. He always seemed to have a smile on his face and seemed to really enjoy life. He spoke fondly of Danny, Chris, Robyn and Jacqueline - very proud of his children. I also remember when I would go to the pool in Newtown with Aunt Dora (Uncle Will's sister). Uncle Will, Aunt Barbara and Jacqueline would meet us there. He was so much fun to be around.

As stated in Mr. Swayze's obituary, he loved to mow his lawn.
One of my fondest childhood memories are when he lived in Holland and every Saturday during the fall we would traipse to the Swayze home on Saturday mornings to rake leaves with his daughter, Robyn. Mr Swayze would drive around and around in circles in the yard with his tractor lawn mower and then we would all rake the big piles of leaves and of course, jump in! Mrs.
