He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Gordon and Nina Lou Alexander, Jacob Earnest, and Luarkey Earnest Teske.
Survivors include his girlfriend, Amie Price; his daughter, Amanda Watson (Scott) and her mother, Sheila Hagler; his sons, Robert Jacob Alexander and Joshua Tyrel Alexander and their mother, Wanda Smith; his parents, Jon H. Alexander and Audrey E. Alexander; his sister, Alicia G. Alexander; his brothers, David Alexander (Celeste) and Jon D. Alexander (Melissa); his nephews, D.E. Alexander and Richard Alexander; his nieces, Leigh Hocutt (Jeffery), Rhiannon Key (Michael), and Chelsea Frazier (Stacy); and his faithful support team, Eddy, Susan, Leigh, Jeffery, T.R., Stella, James, Tina Cannon, Paul Shelby, Telisa, Teresa, and Becky. He did not have a line between family and friends, so there was no way to list you all, but we know who you are.
His love and laughter came without reserve from his soul. We all loved him, even when he was ornery, and he "'preciated" that. His love of music, words, people, and good stories was truly a thing to behold.
We who love Thurman want to thank our Heavenly Father for giving him to us to love and be loved by him and for tender mercies that he supplies fresh every morning to strengthen and help us in our time of great pain.
