Kirk William Swaim, 57, of Royal passed away on July 20, 2017. He was born in Flint, Michigan to William and Audrey Swaim.

Kirk attended both the Michigan and Arkansas School for the Blind where he learned how to read using braille. Although he was blind, Kirk never let this slow him down or hinder his bright, childlike personality. He loved to read, fish and could even ride a bicycle. Kirk was incredibly outgoing and never met a stranger; his family will deeply miss the light he put into the world.

Left to cherish his memory are his siblings; Jack Swaim (Roberta), Bill Swaim (June) and several nieces and nephews.

Greeting Kirk in Heaven are his parents and sister, Angela Walker.

A visitation will be held in the chapel of Gross Funeral Home from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. on Monday, July 24, 2014 with a Celebration of Kirk’s life to immediately follow.

Interment will be at Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
