Harold A. Swank

MANSFIELD: Harold A. Swank passed away Thursday, October 28, 2021 in his home. He was 69 years old.

He was born April 26, 1952 to Almeda (Gatton) Swank in Mansfield. He graduated from Clear Fork High School in 1970.

In early years he served part time for the Butler police department as well as volunteered for the Worthington Township Fire Department. He worked at Weekley as a mechanic as well as for the Village of Butler in the water and sewer department before transferring to the Village of Lexington to again work in the water and sewer department where he eventually retired. Harold even took a job working at the Clear Fork Ski Resort just so his son Jason would be able to ski for free!

He was a dedicated fan of the Cleveland Indians, Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Browns. Harold lived his life for other people and loved to take care of others. He was always there for his kids whenever they needed him. He will be remembered for how much he cared for those around him.

He is survived by children Jason (Sarah) Swank and Christina (fiancé Al Lockwood) Gerken; grandchildren Mallory Gerken, Landon Gerken, Lillian Swank and Riley Swank; significant other Brenda Wilson.
