Alvin Henry Burfeindt

Alvin Henry Burfeindt was born on March 2, 1935 to Henry and Meta (Hoft) Burfeindt in Avon, South Dakota. He attended Zion Lutheran Parochial School in Avon through the 8th grade and went on to Avon High School. At age 17, Alvin went to work construction at the Fort Randall Dam in Pickstown, South Dakota working primarily on the spillway concrete. On August 29, 1954, he was united in marriage to Margaret Carda at Zion Lutheran Church, Avon. Together they made their home on the family farm for two years until drought forced them to seek work in California. For a time, he worked for Rhor Aircraft before they returned to South Dakota to continue farming. Alvin then joined the Springfield National Guard and was stationed in Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri. Upon returning home, he continued serving with the National Guard as well as working as a Federal Crop Insurance adjustor, school board member, and feed and seed dealer. After semi-retirement, he enjoyed coffee with friends at Avon Farmers Co-op and Mark’s Machinery in Wagner.
Alvin passed away on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 in Tyndall, South Dakota having attained the age of 83 years.
