Glynn Eugene Tindall, born September 25, 1938, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on November 21, 2020, at the age of 82. His beloved wife, Gwen Mize Tindall of 60 years, and his adoring children were by his side. He is survived by his children Kathy Urbanick (Greg) of Cartersville, GA, David Tindall (Suzy) of Huntsville, AL, and Christy Waters (Tim) of Tulsa, OK. He is also survived by his grandchildren, in whom he delighted, Zachary Sherwin (Leah), Wes Sherwin, Jonathan Tindall, Matthew Tindall, David Waters, Hannah Waters, and great-granddaughter Sophia Sherwin. He has surviving brothers J D Tindall, Franklin Tindall (Ginger), sister Mary Emma Brown (Clinton) and special brother in law and sister in law Sam and Jeanie Mize. He has many treasured nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Johnny and Mary Annie Tindall and sister in law Jane Tindall.
He was a devoted husband, father, and Christian witness. At the Cancer Center, he met each person taking treatment and asked could he pray with them. No one ever refused. As a Gideon, he especially enjoyed giving Bibles to students in the local schools. He taught the Sportsman Sunday School Class at Belmont until he became sick. He loved singing in the choir and with the men's ensemble Redeemed. He was a retired educator from DeKalb Technical College, enjoyed gardening, tending his flowers, and most of all giving away vegetables and watermelons to friends. He also enjoyed a good game of Rook or Mexican Train.
The family will receive friends on Monday, November 23, 2020, from 12:00 to 2:00 at Belmont Baptist Church. The funeral will follow at 2:00 in the church. Pastor Stephen Williams, Rev. Jim Sellers, and Glynn's children will speak. Treva Sellers will have charge of the music. Honorary pallbearers will be members of the Sportsman Class of Belmont Baptist Church.
