Billy Don 'Bill' Swindle

Billy Don 'Bill' Swindle

(September 30, 1940 ~ May 6, 2024)

Bill, son of David Cason Swindle and Ardelia Jane Atkins, married to Patsy Louise Heuermann.

Bill Swindle was born at home on September 30, 1940, near Tuscola, Texas to David Cason and Ardelia Jane Atkins Swindle. He was the youngest of 10 siblings. He married the love of his life Patsy Heuermann on June 16, 1960. They lived happily together as best friends until his last day. He left this world peacefully at his home in Abilene, Texas surrounded by family. He was a wonderful husband who loved his family and extended family endlessly.

He spent many years working with International Harvester Trucks in sales and service. He worked his way up to management before retiring. He later opened his own automotive business in Sweetwater, Texas which enabled them to retire early.  They then spent many precious years at Lake Coleman where they enjoyed time with family and met many good friends.

Bill is survived by his wife of almost 64 years Patsy, three adoring daughters; Pamala Evans and husband Paul, Connie Mayes, Cathy Collins and husband Tom. He was also grandfather to Adam Evans and wife April, Kyle Flanagan and wife Sarah, Katie Flanagan and wife Nikki, Bailey Collins, Devyn Logan, Blake Evans and wife Holly, Helena Endress and husband Dominik, Tommy Collins, Ethan Collins and 10 great grandchildren. He also leaves behind one brother Lee Swindle and wife Peggy, as well as several other nieces, nephews, extended family members and close friends.

The family would like to extend their thanks to Alpha Omega Hospice for providing the comfort and care necessary for his peaceful passing.

Tommy Lynn Ross passed into eternity on April 15, 2024. A visitation will be held on Friday, April 19, 2024 from 5-7pm at Fry-Smith Funeral Home in Tuscola, Texas. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at 10am at River of Life Church in Abilene, Texas.

Born on Christmas Eve of 1952 in Baird, Texas, to Ted and Ozella Ross, he leaves behind a legacy of love, faith, and generosity. Known for his endless love for Jesus, Tommy's life was a testament to his unwavering commitment to spreading kindness to those around him.

Tommy's profound love for his wife, Dayna, their daughters, and his grandchildren was at the very heart of his being. They, in return, adored him deeply. To his grandchildren, he wasn't just a grandfather; he was "Daddio" - a title that epitomized the unique, joyful, and loving relationship they shared. Their bond was special, filled with joy, laughter, and countless memories.

Never one to sit still, Tommy made sure retirement was chock-full of adventures with Dayna, turning every day into a "let's see where the road takes us" kind of day. He had a knack for turning everyday moments into life lessons, always ready with a story or a helping hand-and if you were really lucky, both. Known for his willingness to give you the shirt off his back, Tommy's legacy is one of love, laughter, and generosity. His giving spirit was evident to all who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ted and Ozella Ross, and his brother, Allen Ross.

He is survived by his wife, Dayna; daughters, Taylor, Bradee, Jordan and her husband Ryan Pease; grandchildren, True, Dakota, Grayson, and Emerson; brother, Bobby Ross and wife Mary; sister, Lurlene Roch; mother-in-law, Deanna Pursley; niece, Talon and her husband Cody Bays; nephews, Randy Roch and Cale Romick; and numerous other nieces, nephews, and family members and countless close friends.

As we celebrate Tommy's life, we remember a man who was not only beloved by his family but who also left his mark on the hearts of everyone he met. In leiu of flowers, donations can be made in Tommy's name to Big Country Walk to Emmaus P.O. Box 5080, Abilene, Texas 79608.

Please keep Tom Earnest (1989) and his family in your prayer as they morn the loss of Tom's wife Cathy.

Amy Harris - Jim Ned Alumni Association

We do not have many details yet, but please keep JNHS Class of ‘89 graduate Tom Earnest and his daughters (ages 14 & 18) in your prayers. Tom’s wife, Cathy, was killed in a crash this morning (April 13th). Cathy was an experienced motorcyclist, but the other driver ran a red light. No one else was injured, but their youngest was present when it happened. I’ll share more when possible.

UPDATE: We are so very thankful for y’all and the multitude of prayers going up on behalf of Cathy Taylor Earnest’s family and all who loved her. Due to her daughters’ school/finals schedules, Cathy’s service will likely fall sometime between May 3-10 in Oklahoma City. Our love to you all and PLEASE look twice or more(!) while driving. The ripple effect/loss felt from one fatal accident is tremendous.


Memorial service for Cathy Taylor Earnest:

Memorial Road Church of Christ

Monday, May 6, 2024


Please continue to keep Tom, Landry, Casady, Mike, Becky Taylor Zajac & her family, my mom & our X & H, and the many, many folks who knew and loved Cathy in your prayers. It is so very appreciated.

From their oldest daughter, Landry, on the significance of the service time -

Something about my mom: 143 was her favorite number. She used it in everything. It stands for the number of letters in the words “I love you”. She loved well and she loved big.
