I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. II Timothy 4: 7-8 (KJV) Ruben Trappier, Jr., who was respectively called, Coonshine, was the son of Ruben Trappier, Sr. and Minnie Nikki Cain Trappier. He was born August 21, 1942 in Florence County, South Carolina. Ruben departed this life on Sunday, May 1, 2011 after an illness. He attended the public schools of Florence County.
