John Charles Schweda Jr. Sept. 24, 1945 ~ July 19, 2013
July 09, 2013, 8:00 am by Staff Reports
He graduated from Gonzales High School in 1963 where he served on the student council and was co-captain of the football team. John joined the United States Air Force where he served four years as an MP and sharpshooter. Following his military career he graduated from South West Texas State University with an accounting degree. He also was co-owner and operator of Nephews Club in San Marcos for many years.
John worked with several accounting firms through the years prior to semi-retirement at the lake where he continued to do tax work. He got to live out his dreams of full time golfing, hunting, fishing, cooking and gambling with an occasional tax return prepared. By the way, he is really shooting par golf now.
He is survived by his best friend and soul mate Randee Russell; son Shane Schweda (Kelly) of Round Rock; daughter Johnna (Marcus) Pridgeon; grandsons Jasen and Jaren Walshak of Austin; sister Nonadell (Kenneth) Malatek of College Station; sisters-in-law Sandi (Billie) Peters of Llano and Cindy (John) Brockwell of Boerne; numerous nieces and nephews and by the love of his life, Bella (Shih Tzu).
John was predeceased by his parents; his stepson Cpl. Clayton Russell Jester (USMC) and his spoiled rotten babies Zima and Muffy.
