Tillman Clay Turner, Sr., 85, of Winnsboro, Texas, passed away on April 8, 2020 with his wife of 62 years,
Virginia Turner, at his side.
Tillman was born on March 10, 1935 to Julia and Lawrence Turner at home in Winnsboro, Texas. The

life, Virginia, in 1956. Upon completion of service in the National Guard, Tillman held the rank of
Sargeant. They were happily married on November 26, 1958, and together raised a family of six in
Houston where he built his own printing business, Southwestern Badge & Stamp Works, before retiring
and moving back to Winnsboro in 2013.
With success in sports, business, marriage and family, the driving force and center of it all was his faith
and devotion to his entire family whose hearts always were and will remain devoted to him. He was so
easy to like and to love, so endlessly giving, and he will continue to be giving as we embrace his vivid
