James Edward Swain was born on March 24, 1940 in Talladega, Alabama, to Carson Swain and Emma Pearl English, who preceded him in death. He entered into Jehovah’s memory on Monday, February 10, 2014. James had two brothers who also preceded him in death, George W. Brown and Joe Lewis Swain. He also leaves behind a sister, Mrs. Flora Grace Rhoden of Talladega, Alabama, and one brother, Mr. Willie James Brown of Gadsden, Alabama. James Edward Swain leaves behind six children to cherish his memory: Willie Groce Swain, Arlisa Swain, Bruce E. Swain, Kenya Swain, James Lernard Swain, and Crystal Swain, all of Atlanta, Georgia. He also has five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins. James was called “Pops” by many, but the older generation called him “Baby Ray”. He was a great story-teller, particularly about the ‘old times’, and people loved to listen. He was a generous and caring person. Late in life, James began on his journey to reconnect with his children, and towards dedicating his life in service to Jehovah God. Prior to his death, he was learning about God’s promise of a resurrection of all those in the memorial tombs as stated at John 5:28-29. We will miss James’ rich, deep laughter and his infectious smile, as well as his familiar parting saying, “You be good and be safe.” Condolences can be sent to P.O. Box 3521, Marietta, GA 30061.
