Kim Jack Swinburne 12/21/2023

On December 21, 2023, Kim Jack Swinburne passed away after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.  Born in Bagley, Minnesota, he began working for his father’s trucking company when he was a teenager before moving into retail.  He eventually made his way to the Twin Cities where he worked at the post office for 25 years until retiring in 2020.

He married the love of his life, Theresa Maier, on October 14, 1989.  It was the best thing he ever did.  Together they had three wonderful boys; Jeremiah, Mitchel and David.

Highlights of his life included vacations with family and friends.  Later in life he developed a love for kayaking, fishing and horseracing.

Kim is preceded in death by his grandparents, Jack and Ethel; father, Richard; and daughter, Danielle.

His is survived by wife, Terry; mother, Mary; sister Marilee (Larry); and his three sons.

Never a man to complain, Kim showed kindness to every person he met.  He wishes family, friends, and strangers well, and hopes the world will always find a way to love above all else.

Mass of Christian Burial was held on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, at 3:00PM at St. Bridget Church, 211 E Division Street, River Falls, WI with visitation starting at 12:00PM.  In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.  Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services.

    So sorry to have read of Kim’s death. May the joys you knew and the times you shared help comfort you at this sad time. This Bible verse recorded in John 5:28 has been of comfort to our family when experiencing a loss. It reads “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus Christ) voice and come out.” May Jehovah the God of all comfort give strength and his love to each of you.

    We are so sorry for your loss Terry and boys. Even though we moved away from River Falls and haven’t kept in touch, we will never forget Kim’s zest for life and the pride he had in his heart for Terry and his boys. We will always have fond memories of trolling in his boat after River Falls Days festivities (in his garage). Kim always made sure you caught something delicious at the end of your fishing line.
    Happy fishing in Heaven Kim! I know you are sure to catch the big one with Danielle. Hugs and prayers Terry, Mitchell, and David.
