James A. Swinney
69, of Greencastle, passed away on August 25, 2021 at Hendricks Regional Health, with his daughters by his side. Jim was born on December 18, 1951 in Indianapolis, IN to the late Dorothy L. (Farmer) and James R. Swinney.

Jim worked in the family business as a repairman for Swinney Zenith TV, before working in maintenance for Indianapolis Water Company for over 25 years, retiring in 2017. Family was important to Jim. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandkids. He also enjoyed spending time outdoors, watching hummingbirds and wildlife from his front porch, fishing, camping and off-road riding on his UTVs. He was known for his cooking, especially his creative uses of onions and peppers and catching butter on fire. He will be remembered as a hardworking man who loved to tell stories and pulling pranks on family and friends.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother-in-law, William Wright and a nephew Macklin J. Swinney.

He is survived by his daughters Karla Mullins (Kevin), Jamie Tucker (Michael), Danelle Martin (Cory); sister Dana Wright; brothers Mike Swinney (Kim), Pat Swinney (Bonnie), Mark Swinney (Liz), Scott Swinney (Dinah Alsept); grandchildren Emma Mullins, Laila Tucker, Grayson Tucker; partner Sally Schank, and his beloved Yorkie, Gizmo.
