Robert H. Swingle Sr., a retired trucking company owner who played drums with a band, died Friday after a heart attack at his home in Galesville. He was 63.
A mass of Christian burial for Mr. Swingle was being offered today at Our Lady of Sorrows Roman Catholic Church in West River.
He moved to Galesville from Laurel after his retirement in 1979 as owner of Duncan Transfer, an Alexandria, Va., trucking company. He operated the business and lived in Laurel for about 10 years, after working as a sales executive for trucking companies in several other cities.
