Bob Swinford was one of the best men I have ever known. He was a strong person, yet kind and gentle. He set an example that all young men would do well to emulate. He always found time for others, and made anyone around him feel at ease, and feel that he was genuinely interested in them. I was fortunate to have known him for more than 65 years, from the time I was a small boy. and I cherish what he contributed to my life over the years. Rest in peace, Bob.
