Donnie Turnbo

Donnie Turnbo, 68, passed away on Nov. 14 at home with his family. Funeral services were held Nov. 16 at Lone Star Cowboy Church officiated by Pastor Charky Marquis.
Pappy, as he was known and loved by so many, was born Sept. 3, 1949 in Belton. Survived by his wife of 39 years, Carol Kilman Turnbo, his children Stephanie Turnbo and Michael Cox of Los Angeles, California and Melissa Turnbo Fuller and Kevin Fuller of Corsicana; his grandchildren Sean Fuller, Emma Fuller and Sebastian Cox; his sister Janice Simonds.
He was preceded in death by his father William Allen Turnbo, mother Mavis Leota Turnbo, brother Frederick, and sisters Joyce Smith and Judy Bridges. May they welcome him in and spoil him rotten, as they did in life.
Pappy served his country in S. Korea during the Vietnam war. After working for many years in the trucking industry as a driver, mechanic and supervisor he retired in 2009. He was passionate about classic cars and trucks above almost all else - whether it was acquiring or working on them, or just stopping and taking a moment to look under the hood. He would talk your ear off (or tell a dirty joke) if you let him, but you'd have a friend for life after that.
The family would like to thank Chastity Blue with Kindred Hospice for her care and compassion, and Fay Feggett with Angels at Home for her endless devotion and loving care for the past 4 years.
