James (Jim) Swanzy III of Clute, Texas, long-time president of Capital City Skeet & Trap, passed away on February 21.

Jim and his wife Marian were married for over 40 years and lived in Austin. After retirement, Jim enjoyed skeet shooting and riding and traveling on his BMW motorcycles. He played an integral part in making Austin’s Capital City Clays a welcoming and fun location for shooting skeet, trap, and sporting clays.
