Jeffry Norris Turnbaugh


Jeffry Norris Turnbaugh, 58, of Celeste, Texas passed away on June 2, 2019 from natural causes.
There will be no services at this time but a "Celebration of Life" will be held at a later date. Coker-Mathews was in charge of arrangements.
Jeff was born January 16, 1961 in Evansville, Indiana. He graduated from Memorial High in 1979 and from ITT Technical Institute in 1982. Shortly after, Jeff aka Jeffro moved to Texas. In 1985 he started working for RICOH Corp. and He continued to work for RICOH as a Sr. Technology specialist until his passing.
Jeff was a kind and giving soul, almost always with gift in hand. He enjoyed watching sports, listening to music, playing Domino's, corn hole and Euchre. Really almost any game with "strategy." On his own, Jeff raised two amazing daughters whom he referred to as "his world!" He was an extremely proud and generous Father.
He is survived by his daughters, Jennifer Frances Turnbaugh of Greenville, Texas and Jessica Ann Turnbaugh of Otwell, Indiana. He is also survived by his father Gerold Turnbaugh and step mother Dianna of Cibilo, Texas; His Mother Patricia Turnbaugh of Evansville, Indiana; brother Mike and wife Yvette of Henderson, Kentucky; sisters Julia and husband Nick; Laura and husband Brian, all of Evansville, Indiana; sister Kathe and life partner Ronnie of Allen, Texas; six nephews, a niece, a great niece, many wonderful friends, co-workers and clients.
He was certainly "one of the good guys" and he will be GREATLY missed.
