Louis M. Swierc, age 60, of Falls City, Texas, passed away May 11, 2020 in Floresville, Texas. He was born December 25, 1959 in San Antonio, Texas to Vida Moore Swierc and the late Leonard Ehlinger. Louis was a graduate of Falls City High School, and a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Falls City.
Uncle Louie as he was affectionally called by his nieces and nephews loved to tell us stories and we will miss that so much. He loved watching old westerns and could name all of the big movie stars from the 50’s & 60’s. He loved watching Beavers Football, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Astros and the Texas Longhorns. His claim to being related to the Texas Longhorn quarterback Sam Ehlinger is true. I am sure he is watching the hummingbirds in Heaven with grandma & fishing with Uncle Joe.
He is survived by his sisters, Karen Swierc of Falls City, Kathy Moore and her husband Roger of Converse, TX, Mary Pawelek and her husband Ron of New Braunfels, TX, Vi Swierc of Falls City, and Ruth Ann Eaton of San Antonio; brothers, Philip J.
