The SVTA mourns the passing of long distinguished member, Swede Thoreson. For many years, Swede was a tremendous asset to SVTA. His pickup truck was a familiar sight to all at Maxwell as he assumed responsibility for oversight of the maintenance and operation of the courts.

He was an ardent and ever-present supporter of junior tennis and helped establish the Free Junior Community Program during the SVTA presidency of his wife, Barbara. He also was a prime mover of the SVTA/Common Bond English Camp Program in collaboration with Flowery School. At the end of 2011, Barbara and Swede retired their positions with SVTA and our tennis community said a reluctant goodbye to its irreplaceable volunteers.

The family suggests memorial contributions to SVTA, Kiwanis, and Hospice by the Bay. Read his obituary here. If you wish to donate to SVTA, you may forward checks to SVTA, PO Box 766, El Verano, CA 95433.
