Anyone who saw Asaph Schwapp address a group of kids or teenagers knew he had a future in coaching. In fact, Weaver High football coach Kevin Quinn said in an email that he always reminded Schwapp that he kept a spot on his staff open for the program’s prized alum. Asaph, who spoke to Quinn’s team last fall, said he wanted to get healthy and figure out his work schedule as a financial adviser before committing to coaching. Schwapp, who died Wednesday after battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, would have been a good coach.
“I know that I speak for the entire Weaver community,” Quinn said. “We lost a great ambassador to Weaver High School, but more importantly, an even better person.”
A service for Schwapp will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m. at the Carmon Funeral Home in Windsor (viewing from 9-11 a.m., with the family arriving at 10 a.m.). The public is welcome at the funeral home. Burial at Bloomfield’s Mountain View Cemetery will follow.
