Murray Swedenborg

Finance officer

Murray Edward Swedenborg of Morgan Hill died November 24 of a heart attack while swimming in the ocean at Makena Beach, Maui, Hawaii. Mr. Swedenborg, who lived in Sharon Heights in Menlo Park for 30 years, was 75.

Mr. Swedenborg was born in Midwest, Wyoming, and grew up in Casper, Wyoming. He attended Stanford University, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1952.

After a two-year tour of duty in the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corp, he returned to Stanford and earned a master's degree in business administration.

Mr. Swedenborg worked for Litton Industries, Advanced Memory Systems, Intersil and Maxim Integrated Products before retiring in 1987. He held the position of vice president of finance in several of these companies.

After retiring, he spent about three months of every year in the Hawaiian Islands or Micronesia snorkeling and scuba diving, and developed a deep knowledge of tropical fish and sea turtles, say family members.

He is survived by his children, Kirk Swedenborg of San Jose, Karen Clark of Los Gatos, and Chris Swedenborg of Menlo Park; brother Donald Swedenborg of San Jose; and three grandchildren.

Private services have been held.
