John Michael Schweder
J. Michael Schweder, age 71, passed peacefully on January 15, 2021, at home surrounded by his wife, Annette, and their three sons. Mike, born in 1949, was a resident of Bethlehem, PA until 2017, when he and Annette moved to Yardley, PA to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Mike is the son of the late John "Bull" and Mary (Lyons) Schweder, and a 1967 graduate of Bethlehem (Liberty) High School. Mike and Annette married in 1972 at Saints Simon and Jude Catholic Church in Bethlehem.

After graduating from high school, Mike attended Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA where he met Annette (Weaver). Mike played four years of varsity football for the Lycoming Warriors, twice named defensive player of the year. In 1997, Lycoming inducted Mike into the Warrior Hall of Fame. Mike remained a committed alumnus following his graduation in 1971, supporting the football program and the Warrior Club for decades. In 2016, Mike became a Member of Lycoming College's Board of Trustees.


We continue to honor and remember our classmates who've passed on before us. Hopefully, one day, we'll all reunite in a better place.
