ASHLAND – Rand Dee Swiggart passed away peacefully at his home on Aug, 12, 2018. A 1969 graduate of Ashland-Greenwood High School, Rand held the basketball scoring record for over 20 years and still holds two free throw records, a point of great pride for Rand. His loves included the Huskers, hunting, the White Sox and most of all, his grandkids.

    Rand’s survivors include his longtime companion Juanita Washburn; brother Brad Swiggart (Gail); sister Jamie Simms (Adam); stepsons Clark Washburn (Vicki), Tim Washburn (Jenny); stepdaughter Jill Wischmann (Bruce); several grandchildren; one great-grandchild; two nephews and three nieces.

    He was preceded in death by his mom, Marsha Swiggart, and his father, Earl Swiggart.

    A Celebration of Life service will be Thursday, Aug. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ashland American Legion.

    Memorials can be made out to Ashland Youth Ball Association, Pheasants Forever or the Nebraska Humane Society (dogs only).
