Alexander Swingle

December 20, 1933 — March 18, 2019

Alexander Swingle Jr. of Waxahachie went to be with the Lord on Monday, March 18, 2019 while holding the hand of his loving wife, Michele.

Al was the only child of the late Alexander and Ruth Swingle.  He was born on December 20, 1933 in Los Angeles, California.  He graduated from Monrovia High School and went on to study at the University of New Mexico then served this country for 3 years in the U.S. Air Force in England.  The majority of his working career was spent employed with the Army Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) where he climbed the ladder, retiring as a Deputy Regional Chief.  He spent his retirement raising his youngest children Allison and Nick, attending all their school and sporting functions while enjoying every second of it.  He also was an avid golfer and enjoyed working out daily.  Additionally, he enjoyed the time spent at church and on mission trips to Mexico.  Al loved to travel from a simple get away to a trip to Europe with Michele.

His life will forever be remembered and cherished in the hearts of his loved ones and the ones that loved him.

He is survived by his wife, Michele; his daughter Allison (Matthew) Foster; his sons Nicholas (Kayla) Swingle and Todd Swingle; his step children Winter and Andrew Wilton and his precious granddaughter Annabelle Wilton who called him “Pops”.

He was preceded in death by both parents and his eldest son James Swingle.

A special thank you goes to each and every one of his caregivers and nurses who loved and cared for him in his final days.  As his wife I will forever be grateful for the kindness and love that he was shown by each of you.
