Dick Swendeman was born in Los Angeles, California, on Feb. 18, 1924. He died peacefully surrounded by family on Dec. 26, 2014.

He is survived by his wife, Junella North Swendeman of Tiburon, California; his children, Crystal and Jerry Anderson, of Idaho, Colleen Mullin, of Belvedere, California, and Rick and Nicki Swendeman, of Angels Camp; 10 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren with another due in February.

Dick was preceded in death by his grandson, Marcus Swendeman; his siblings, Jim Swendeman, Robert Swendeman, Wilma Volf and Ardath Crosby; his mother, Crystal Swendeman, and father, Bill Swendeman.

Dick was a proud World War II veteran in the Army. He also was in the construction business and co-owned the Swendeman Hardware store in Angels Camp.
