April 10, 1942 - August 3, 2019
GREENFIELD - Carl W. Swift, age 77, of Greenfield, passed away Saturday, August 3, 2019 at his residence surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Indianapolis on April 10, 1942 to George and Mary (Mulinaro) Swift. He graduated from Greenfield High School in 1961, and enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving during the Vietnam War from 1963-1967. Carl married the love of his life, Judy, on February 5, 1971 in Greenfield. Carl spent most of his career working for National Wine & Spirits before retiring in 2001. He was a proud U.S. Navy Veteran and was a member of the Greenfield American Legion Post #119 and the Greenfield V.F.W. Post #2693. Carl was known as the ‘rock’ to his family – an amazing husband, papaw, and person overall. He’s known for his big smile, selfless attitude, and strong frame with a big heart. He brought light wherever he went and would attract a party – socializing with any and all but also loved being at home or taking long drives in his truck listening to smooth jazz. There is so much to say but to sum it up – Carl Swift is irreplaceable as a man who meant so much, to so many. Carl is survived by his wife, Judy Swift of Greenfield; son, Michael (Becky) Swift of Greenfield; daughter, Angela (Alex) Hall of McCordsville; sister, Maria (Fred) Johnson of Florida; grandchildren, Ethan and Caleb Swift; and Dorian, Julius, and Elena Hall.
