The Passing of Hank Swan

Henry Tilden “Hank” Swan III, 92, of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii passed away September 17, 2014.

The eldest child of Colonel H.T. Swan, and Sarah Robinson Swan, Hank first came to Camp Pok-O-Moonshine in 1922.  He is the older brother to longtime camp owner Jack Swan. Hank Swan returned to camp for the final time, for the 100th reunion, in August, 2004.*

In addition to Jack, he is survived by daughters Suzanne Collipi, Priscilla Fox and Virginia Williams; six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
