Obituary

We, the Schwartz family, are proud to have had the honor of loving Bruce Alan Schwartz (Pickerington, OH); husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, son, brother, and a wonderful source of counsel and comfort throughout the lives of those who have been blessed with his love and guidance. Bruce entered peacefully into the Kingdom of Heaven early on the morning of Sunday, January 8, 2023, while surrounded by his family and loved ones. Bruce leaves to carry on in his memory, his wonderful and supportive wife, Karen Schwartz, his four children and grandchildren, Charles Schwartz (children: Walter and Genevieve), Paul (Shelley) Schwartz (children: Will, Nicholas, Tyler, and Charity), JoEllen (Chris) Hance, DaniElle (Jason) Wright (children: Nathan and Cody), and seven great grandchildren. Also, his extented family, Lori (Steve) Harris (children: Joseph and Nicholas), Mark (Cheryl) Halter (children: Roger, Shane, and Trey), Matthew (Rebecca) Larmor (children: Brendan and Jacob), and numerous friends.

Bruce was born February 13, 1942, in Merrionette Park (a suburb of Chicago), Illinois to Walter Anton Schwartz and Evelyn Rose (Karaffa) Schwartz, both of whom have awaited Bruce's arrival in Heaven along with his sister Barbara Zajac and his 'pup,' Derby, his dachshund possessed of a spectacularly mischievous disposition. Bruce graduated from Carthage College (Illinois) with a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and later graduated from Xavier University with an MBA, magna cum laude. Bruce retired from Central Benefits Insurance as the Human Resources Director in addition to serving honorably as an adjunct professor at Columbus State Community College for 32 years. Bruce pursued his life-long passion for flight certifying first as VFR, then IFR, and finally as a CFII. He also spent many enjoyable years traveling across the United States on his Honda Gold Wing motorcycle with Karen and their many friends. Bruce was an OSU football fan (closet Penn State supporter). Bruce's faith in God and His everlasting love was absolutely unshakable. Bruce chose Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church to pursue his faith. He loved worshiping at the Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church and participating in choir.

A celebration of Bruce's life will occur this coming Spring at a date to be determined later. Contributions in lieu of flowers should be made in Bruce's name to the Reynoldsburg United Methodist Foundation. Checks to be Mailed to: Reynoldsburg Community Church, 1636 Graham Road, Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. Checks Payable to: Reynoldsburg United Methodist Foundation.
