Jody K. Swain, age 60, of Lubbock, TX passed away in Oklahoma City, OK, while working on the road as a long-distance truck driver.

Born June 20, 1959 in Santa Cruz, CA., he was the son of the late Ronald Dean and Arlene Henson Swain. Growing up, Jody enjoyed being a part of his neighbor’s “pit crew”. Dick Beazley raced cars every Friday night in Manchester and each day, Jody would hurry home from school to hang out in the garage with Mr Beazley to work on the next engine, making sure the race car was ready for Friday night. In high school, Jody was a member of Future Farmers and he enjoyed helping out in the spring during “lambing season”. Family pictures show that he managed to somehow talk his sister into helping out as well. Jody was also a member of the track team, helping the team win many awards. He was also a member of the Clinton High School Class of 1978.

Jody is survived by his son, Jeff Swain and wife Teresa of Ft. Carson, Colorado; and his sister, Evette Strain, of Woodbridge, Virginia.

Burial will take place at Santa Fe National Military Cemetery on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at 9:45 a.m.

So dreadfully sorry to hear about my cousins passing. I believe I had only talked with him on facebook on or two time. Seemed like a very nice and pleasant person. Am very sorrowful to have to write this to his other family members (some I know, and some I don't. Anyhow, kindly accept my deepest condolences for the passing away of Jody (he was much to young and will be missed by many)
