“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day-and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8 Mr. Alfonsa Eugene “Bunny” Tindal was born on October 8, 1946 in Florence, South Carolina to Woodrow Bee and Hattie Bell Tindal Thomas. He departed this life on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at his residence after an illness. Alfonsa attended the public schools of Florence County, where he was a member of the baseball and football teams.
