Greg Schwartz

1949 - 1980

Greg schwartz was last seen in 1972. We received this information from his younger brother, Steven Schwartz. Greg was born in 1949 and has not been seen since 1972 at the age of 23.

Steven Schwartz writes "I am a lot younger than my two older brothers: Bill and Greg and did not attend school in Japan. But, I wanted to update the information on my two brothers who did attended Johnson High School.

"My brother, Greg Schwartz was class of 1967. Greg attended his freshman year at Johnson during the 1963-64 school year, followed by his sophomore year during the 1964-65 JHS school year. Unlike his older brother William, Greg was not into participating in sports, he was more academic and always had high marks in school.

When our father was transferred State-side, Greg went to El Rancho HS in Las Vegas for his Junior Year, 1965-66. We then moved to Washington, where Greg attended and graduated from Glacier Sr. High School, class of 1967 in Seattle. Greg joined the U.S. Army in 1968, but was later medically discharged in 1969.

I remember Greg getting a 30 day leave, staying with us before he had to catch a plane at Seatac Airport to go to Maryland where he was to be stationed. Two weeks later a US Army Captain and a chaplain were knocking on our door and informing our family that Greg was at Camp Murray Army Mental Hospital in Tacoma, Washington. Greg was just fine before he left, but when we went to visit him, it seemed like my brother was no longer with us mentally. Something had gone terribly wrong while Greg was on a volunteer assignment for the Army; he was discharged with a diagnosis of schizophrenia.

The last time I saw Greg was in 1972; he was 23. Greg moves around a lot and through the years I have heard of him being checked into a VA center from one State to the next, always on the move. I don't know where Greg is today or if he is still alive.

If you could provide any details, please contact Kay Weaver.

A copy of the obituary would be very helpful, since it would contain information, such as:

  • Date of birth
  • Date of Death
  • current Hometown
  • Names, addresses & emails to send condolences

The Johnson High alumni are hoping to find Greg; we miss this Falcon very much.
