  • In Loving Memory

    On Wednesday, January 5, 2022, Russell J Swilor, loving father, husband and grandfather passed away at age 59.

    Russ was born October 25th, 1962, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Milan and Judy Swilor. He grew up and spent his life in Sandy, Utah. He met and married Shanda Kay Swilor and they raised five children, Russell Jr, Christopher, Crystal, Karly and Brandon.

    Russ was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed life through hunting, fishing, boating, four wheeling and snowmobiling. You could always count on him to bring home the biggest trophy mule deer. He passed his love of the outdoors on to his children and later his grandchildren. He was known for his laughter, jokes, and silly antics. Gone too soon, he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

    Russ is preceded in death by his grandparents, Mike Swilor, Marie Toone Swilor, Leonard Wilson James, Ida Dalton James; and his son Russell Jr. He is survived by his parents, Milan and Judy, siblings Milan Jr, Mitch and Julie, wife Shanda, children Christopher, Crystal, Karly and Brandon, and 15 grandchildren.

    A memorial gathering will be held for friends and family on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, from 10 am to 11:30 am at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East Dimple Dell Road (10600 South), Sandy, UT. Graveside services will follow at 12:00 noon. Please share your favorite memory of Russ with his family at larkincares.com.

    Because of his love for hunting and the outdoors, we ask that in lieu of flowers and gifts, please donate to the Catch-A-Dream Foundation.

    Russ will be greatly miss. I remember meeting him in a high school class at Alta High. From there he gifted me with a beautiful baby boy. Hardest working man I will ever know. His love for the outdoors was second to none. He taught me so much and I have the fondest memories.
