He was born August 1, 1938 in Baldwinsville, NY a son of William H. and Clara F. Mey Schwarting. He received his early education in Fairmount and Solvay schools and was a graduate of West Genesee High School. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army, having served from 1961 until his honorable discharge in 1964. On April 1, 1967, Lee married Barbara J. Northrup in Millport, NY, a loving union of over 53 years. He was a Trooper with the New York State Police from January 1965 until retiring in August 1985.
A master gardener, Lee was a Charter Member of the Gardeners of America which started as the Men’s Garden Club. He was a member and headed the fund raising for Trout Unlimited. He was also a former member of the Smyrna Grange and a 7th Degree in the National Grange. Lee was an avid bird watcher who enjoyed tracking the different species that visited the area. He was also an avid deer hunter and a member of the Eagle Falls Hunting Club at #4, NY.
Lee is survived by his beloved wife, Barbara; children, Brian and Tammie Schwarting of Earlville and Daryl and Catherine Schwarting of Sherburne; brothers, Willard and Jean Schwarting of Auburn and Fred and Debbie Schwarting of Weedsport; sister-in-law, Barbara Ann Schwarting of Jordan; grandchildren, Brandon Schwarting, Loren Schwarting, Breann (Lee) Moxley, and Kaitlin Schwarting; and great-grandchildren, Jayden and Braydon Schwarting; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

So enjoyed our visits and talks whenever Lee came into the Master Gardener office at CCE in Norwich or on the street in the village of Smyrna or at the Smyrna Fire House as he was a very knowledgeable man and would help anyone!

Keep watch over us Lee and make sure we are doing what we are supposed too!

Love and hugs to Barb and family!

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I moved away a long time ago but the one thing I do remember is the good friends Lee & Barb were to my parents Red & Joyce McGregor. Sending thoughts & prayers to the family.
