August 2, 1960 - October 5, 2021
Alphonso Swain began his earthly journey on August 2, 1960, when he was born to the parentage of E.V. Swain, Sr. and Betty Caldwell Swain in Talladega, Alabama. At an early age, Alphonso, a beloved father and brother accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior and united with Antioch Baptist Church Bethel Baptist Church where he remained a member until his demise. Alphonso visited various churches, but Antioch was always him home. He attended Talladega County Training School, known today as Talladega County Central High School. Alphonso later ventured out into the construction industry becoming a concrete finisher while working with his family business, Swain Concrete. Along Alphonso's journey through life, he became the father of a baby girl name Shonda Robinson. Later in life he met his soulmate of many years. Alphonso loved his family and friends. He enjoyed entertaining his friends, playing cards, fishing, working on cars and playing dominos, but watching westerns and cartoons was his favorite past time hobby.
