Killed in combat: Homemade bomb claims church member
“He conducted services for the shut-in and did yard work for the elderly,” Klimko, now the church’s family life minister, told the Valdosta Daily Times.
He attended York College in Nebraska on a track scholarship and earned an associate’s degree. Larry Light, an elder of the East Hill church in York, married McSween to his wife, Erin, and described him as “an excellent husband and father.”
McSween joined the Navy and moved his family to the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station in Oak Harbor, Wash. The McSweens attended the Oak Harbor church and were friends with Barbara Bailey, a state representative. “Adam believed in community and he was actively involved in it and in the church,” Bailey told The Herald newspaper.
McSween is survived by his wife, two daughters, ages 5 and 2, his parents, two brothers and a sister.
