Message Here is the full obituary for Rod Swanson from the Hull and Hull funeral home web page, you can leave tributes for the family there.

Obituary for Rodney G. Swanson
Rodney Gale Swanson, or Papa Rod to his grandchildren & great-grandchildren, passed away Friday, January 16th at the age of 91. Rod was born in 1923 in Santa Clara, OR. His father, Helga, started Swanson & May Lumber Co. at Noti, OR in 1937, an experience which no doubt helped to prepare Rod in his future endeavors. In April of 1943 he joined the Army, leaving his studies at the University of Oregon, to join WWII. He was a light machine gunner for the year he was overseas often driving the company jeep hoarding his rations under his seat. He was quite upset when the location of his stash was discovered and ransacked. While stationed in France he met and married his first wife, Olesia. He left the Army in 1946, receiving two Bronze Stars for his service in Europe. Upon returning to the United States, he earned his Chemical Engineer Degree at OSU, built a few houses with his brother to earn extra money, and started his family. In 1951 he founded Superior Lumber Co. (now Swanson Group, Inc.) in Glendale, OR with 2 of his brothers. Rod & his brother Dean would continue to run that company for the rest of their working days. In 1988 Rod married his second wife and adopted her 2 children always treating them as his own. Papa Rod had a great sense of adventure. He was a pilot for a number of years, he sailed the world in a sailboat and later a powerboat, crossing the Atlantic twice and going through the Panama Canal numerous times. He was an avid traveler visiting all of Europe as well as Africa, China, India, and Russia. He is survived by his wife, 6 children, 17 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren. I lieu of flowers donation can be made to Alzheimer's Association of Oregon, 1650 NW Naito Parkway Suite 190, Portland OR 97209 / 1.800.872.3900 / alz.org/oregon or Oregon Commission for the Blind, 228 North Holly St., Medford, OR 97501 / (541) 776-6047.

Message Wonderful reunion! thanks to those who put it all together, great job.
And thank you Robert McDowell for the wonderful DVD you gave me. You brought tears to eyes with your music as you captured my teen years and memories of our Glendale.
Glendale is not the broken buildings and sad streets, in my mind I see it as it was back then. Your music brought it all back in a glowing light. thank you my friend

Message With the present state of affairs concerning the Veteran's Administration and the medical care for our Veterans, a fitting tribute comes from the title of an editorial in Sunday's Roseburg News Review: "MOURN THOSE WE'VE LOST, CARE FOR THE VETS WHO REMAIN" To this I utter a sound AMEN!

Two comments from people that might be helpful:

Tilda was married to my Uncle Doug Stackhouse but they have been divorced for many years. Last I heard she was in Portland.

I heard Wanda lives with her older brother out there at Windy creek.

Message Our next middle-AGERS meeting will be March 28. 7 feathers Stix sports bar at 12 noon. In the past we had all thrown $ in the pot and had one bill. Our intentions were if there was $ left over that would be put into Glendale Alumni fund. Well the group has grown and not the same people come every time, so from now on we will all just pay for our own lunch. See you all there, Sharon

Message I love that story, Marian. To me it's what education is all about...respect!


Marian owens  18/02/14   00:08:58 Date
Message I have written about Louis & Frances Price before, but they were special people in our commuunity and their stories are certainly worth re-telling! They were both involved in many youth projects, aside from teaching school, and gave so much of themselves for the kids. ONe story I've told before was about going to Elkton for a basketball game. The Prices had taught school there, and I believe Louis was in administration. It was obvious the Prices had been greatly loved in the Elkton community because when they walked into that gymnasium for the basketball game, the whole Elkon crowd gave them a standing ovation. It was a sight to see! Afterwards, whenever that event was mentioned to them, Louis always said, "Well, that was because of Frances"....and Frances always said, "That was because of Louis". I happen to think it was for both!!!

Many thanks to Lee for spending so much time working on the Price slides. I happen to know it was a long tedious job. Can't help but think that Frances had great influence on most of the kids in the pictures.
