The passing of our President, Donald "Swanee" Swanson

CCA NH Mourns Passing of Donald L. Swanson

Donald L. “Swanee” Swanson passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, September

20, 2018, at age 74. Swanee was a dedicated CCA NH board member since the

chapter’s inception in June 1998. He had been serving as chapter President since


In addition to his CCA NH duties, Swanee served for many years on the NEFMC

Advisory Panels for herring and recreational fishing. He also served on ASMFC

menhaden, bluefish and winter flounder advisory panels. He was an avid

recreational angler and US Navy veteran.

Living in Derry, NH, Swanee always made the long drive to work at CCA NH coastal

events such as Oysterpalooza, or work outreach tables at fishing shows such as

Rockingham or Pelham, and other special events. He was indeed a well-known face

of CCA NH. His absence at monthly board meetings was a very rare occurrence in all

the years of his involvement with CCA NH.

Swanee’s selfless and tireless dedication to CCA NH and recreational anglers will be

sorely missed.
