Tommy was born on June 6, 1944, to Francis and Essie Turner in Wellington, Texas. As a young boy he grew up in both Boise and Goodwell, Oklahoma and graduated from Goodwell High School. After high school, he would meet Neoma Collins on a blind date in Lefors, and they later married on June 6, 1966, in Dumas. 

 

Tommy enlisted in the U.S. Navy serving as a Navy Corpsman, assisting as a medic to the U.S. Marines during the Vietnam War. During his service, Tommy would receive the Vietnamese Campaign ribbon, National Defense ribbon, and a Purple Heart for the service to his country. Following his discharge, Tommy returned back to Texas to start a career in sales. Later, he would open his own business, Hi Plains Filtration in 1989, where he served many clients and created a family business with this business endeavor.

 

Tommy was a people person who never met a stranger, he could talk to anyone, and always made life-long friends. He enjoyed fishing, playing cards & chess, reading, and watching game shows with his wife. However, working and maintaining his ‘57 Oldsmobile and going to car shows brought him the most joy. Tommy was a member of the Kentucky Avenue Church of Christ. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

 

Tommy was preceded in death by his parents; siblings, Mary, Clarence, J.D., VeLoyce, and Bob; and a daughter, Cindy Stuart.

The family would like to extend gratitude to caregivers, Rose Estrada, Victoria Estrada, Ana Estrada, Lolly Reyes, Melissa Cottrell, and Leticia Recendiz for their loving care of Tommy.
