Deceased December 17th, 1999
Tyrone Swinson pledged Phi Beta Sigma and was on the FALL 1998 line. He was a #4 on the line "Hard Knox." Tyrone Swinson's line name was "Hoodlum", but he was by no means a Hoodlum. He was by all accounts an upstanding young man; he died turning away a negative stereotype and portrayal of black people. "He was very much loved by everyone," said, then Suli Friedman, the student government office manager at FAU. "He was a greaty guy." A candle is lite for Tyrone Swinson every Black History Month by the Black Student Union.
