Daryl F. Swanson, 83 of Malmo, passed from this life to eternity on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 surrounded by family at Bryan West Medical Center in Lincoln, NE.  What can be said about a whole life in just a few column inches? A life-long resident of Saunders County, Daryl was born May 7, 1935 to Amon and Magnhild Swanson.  He graduated from Wahoo High School in May 1953. After serving in the 24th Medical Company of the Nebraska Army National Guard, he married Judy Schultz of Malmo in August 1962. Farming, livestock and drywall contracting kept him busy throughout life—not quite getting to experience harvest one last time. He taught his children hard work, responsibility and how to provide for those you love. Even in brief encounters with Daryl, people experienced his wit, teasing and dry sense of humor—even the nurses helping the last couple of days. Friday evenings were often spent with friends or family at homes or restaurants like Hakel’s, the Eagles Club, Farmer Brown’s and occasionally Red Lobster with dear people like Dale and Janet, John and Rosemary, Val and Terry, Dale and Suzanne and too many others to list. Holidays, Husker football, Major League Baseball, girls’ and boys’ state and just about any sport in season on TV were anticipated and enjoyed.  He was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church and served on Malmo’s town board.

Daryl is survived by his wife, Judy; children, Bryon (Beverly) Swanson, Michelle (Kerry) Stohlmann, Jason (Michelle) Swanson; grandchildren Nicole, Cam and Ellie Stohlmann, Maggie and Sophie Swanson and Riley Swanson; great-granddaughter, Hadley Goff-Stohlmann; sister, Marilyn and Vic Sedlacek; siblings-in-law, Clarence and Nancy Egr; much loved nieces, nephews and their families.

    We were so sorry to hear of Daryl’s passing. We never thought that the last time we were together would be the last here on earth. We are thinking of you Judy and your family. I know that you all have wonderful memories of your times with Daryl. He was such a happy, fun person. Living in Arizona will not allow us to be there, but know we will be thinking of you. Take care and keep in touch. Love, Ray and Juanita
