Francis Aubrey Swartz (1924-1996) Photo
« on: Sunday 25 December 16 16:26 GMT (UK) »
Photo of Maj. Francis Aubrey Swartz (Ret.) (1924-1996). This photo was taken during the Korean War when Francis was a young American fighter pilot. The plane pictured may be an F 100. Francis was said to have served in both the U.S. Marines and U.S. Air Force. Francis was born in Virginia and died in San Antonio, Texas. He was one of 11-13 Swartz siblings and a brother to Margaret Jane Swartz (1914-1997). Francis had four wives.
  Need a little color in the photo.

Thank you to everyone for your help with Francis' Photo. The 'old warhorse' would've liked it.
Family lore has it that Francis Aubrey Swartz kept a .45 pistol under his pillow at night in fear of the communists. He was a staunch anti-communist.

Color really came out good in that one. You made him look like an Astronaut! Thank you.

Francis Aubrey Swartz was cremated right after his death in 1996 in the San Antonio, Texas, area. His ashes were kept in the family until at least Nov 2001 by his now-deceased wife Mary Swartz.
