He is survived by his wife, Judy Swafford; his children; Andrea Sentell and her husband Ryan, Chris Swafford and his wife Amy, Amy Thompson and her husband Corey, Charlotte Williams and her husband Mark, Judy’s children, Sam, Tammy and her husband Ryan, and Tim and his wife Jen, along with 10 grandchildren for Don and 11 grandchildren of Judy, his brothers Quentin and Alan and their spouses, along with many nieces and nephews, as well as the mother of his children Dorothea New.
