Patrick "Pat" Swindall Obituary
Former Georgia congressman Pat Swindall, a Republican trailblazer in Georgia before his political career was derailed by a perjury conviction, has died at age 67.

Swindall died Wednesday, July 11, 2018. His former campaign manager and chief of staff, Robb Austin, confirmed his death Thursday to The Associated Press. No cause of death was given.

A Republican from Atlanta's eastern suburbs, Swindall served two terms in Congress from 1985 to 1989, at a time when Georgia's political landscape was dominated by Democrats.

Patrick Lynn Swindall was born in Gadsden, Ala., on Oct. 18, 1950, one of four children born to Nathan and June Swindall. Nathan Swindall operated the Atlanta Furniture Store at Butler and Decatur streets. Pat Swindall worked in the furniture store as a youngster and would later manage the business. In 1972, Swindall graduated from the University of Georgia, where he also earned his law degree in 1975. He was a graduate of Briarcliff High School in DeKalb County.

He is survived by his wife, seven children and several nieces, nephews and sons-in-law.

A visitation will be held Saturday, July 14, 2018 at Cromwell Brothers Funeral Home in Peachtree Corners. A memorial service is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Sunday, July 15, 2018, at the Vine Community Church in Cumming.
