Jack owned and operated the Fabulous Fifties Diner on Clearlake Road for many years
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Jack Allen Swearingen was a man who always seemed younger than his years. Until his recent illness, Jack could be found hunting, at his billiards league, and spending time with family and friends.
Jack was born in Meyers Lake Village, Canton, OH, the youngest child of Frances (nee McInally) and Robert Swearingen. As a young man, Jack served honorably in the United States Army, and then went on to work in the family business, Pools by Bahama.
Jack had a successful career in construction, helping construct world-famous landmarks like Kennedy Space Center and The Magic Kingdom, but failed at retirement.
He soon moved into the restaurant business, and owned and operated the Fabulous Fifties Diner on Clearlake Road for many years.
Jack loved to enjoy life, whether it was restoring classic cars, air boating, 4-wheeling, or hunting.
Jack is survived by his three children, Cindy Fielder of Marietta GA, Patrick Swearingen of Cocoa FL, and Renee Godfrey of Massillon OH, his five granddaughters (Aubrey, Arianne, Crystal, Nicole, and Briana), and six great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his bride of 40 years, Vera (nee Lundy), as well as his sister Nancy Pellegrene and brother Bob.
Jack will be interred at the Cape Canaveral National Cemetery in Scottsmoor, Florida.
A Memorial and Celebration of Jack’s life is planned, with arrangements to be announced at a later time. If you would like to make a donation to honor Jack’s life, please consider St. Jude’s.
