  1. Mr. F. William (Bill) Swope died peacefullu on Sunday, 18 February, 2018.  Bill was 95.  Bill was a longtime member of DBC.  His first collector car was a 1921 Dodge Brothers turing, which he first purchased for use in his Dodge dealership, in Winchester KY.  Bill moved his dealership to Elizabethtown, and this was the foundation for the Swope Family of dealerships in E-Town 
    Bill and Betty hosted the 3rd DBC tour in Elizabethtown. We had a great time!  We rode the KY Dinner train, went to My Old Kentucky Home, visited Lincoln's boyhood home, Maker's Mark, rode the Ohio river on the Swope's boat.  We had so many activities that each participant had three choices for each day.  To conclude, Dick Eiseman  MC'd a rodeo of car games.  The Swope's hosted the dinner at their dealership.  
    Bill only started collecting antique cars in 1990.  He amassed a collection such that he opened a museum Swope's Cars of Yesteryear.  Several DB along with nearly 100 other cars reside there.  The museum was free to anyone interested, and DB members visited there often 
    Bill is survived by his sons, Dick, Bob, Carl, and his daughter, Kathryn.  He also leaves his adopted daughter, Angela, and son, Larry.  
    Bill was my best friend and mentor.  His official obituary is published in the Elizabethtown News enterprise.  The Dodge Brothers will surely miss him
