We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Roy W. Barber Funeral Home
John P. Schwartz was a loving, funny man who loved to sing the Cattle Call, enjoyed his Blue Grass music, and enjoy time back in the day when he and his wife Audrey would spend time at their cottage in Point Lookout, Maryland. They are many great memories and laughs they had with their many nieces and nephews at that time.
John as so many called “Uncle Phil” served in the United States Army, 107th Airborne and was Honorably discharged in 1962. After that he became a Glazier in Local 368 in Maryland. Uncle Phil did a lot of the Glass work in buildings in DC such as the Embassy’s and his favorite the National Zoo, where one day he actually pet the paw of one the first Pandas. He loved animals, kids, pitching horseshoes and growing his famous tomato garden.
