Pete Swain, 78, of Christiansburg, passed away on December 23, 2020. He was preceded in death by his mother, Lottie Swain; siblings, James Swain, Robert Swain, Virginia Mooney, Louise Wright; and his mother-in-law the next day after Pete passed, Bettie ‘MeMaw’ Maxey.
Pete is survived by his wife, Anne Swain; sons, Chuck Swain (Melissa), and Jay Swain; grandkids, Brad, Dirk, Hannah, and James Swain, LeAnne Swain; great-grandson, Cyris Hurley; his best friend, Butch Franklin; and his beloved pets, Journey, Jilly, Marley, Patsy, and Sally.
Pete was a professional over-the-road truck driver for over 50 years. After retiring he worked at Modern Automotive helping his son Chuck. Pete was known for being a straight shooter – he had no problem telling people the way things were. However, he had a very loving heart. He loved his family and friends fiercely and would help anyone that needed it. He will be greatly missed.
Memorial Services for Pete will be scheduled for a later date.
