Dallas Turpin, 72, of Gosport, Ind. passed away of cancer at the Hospice House in Bloomington on Tuesday, July 8, 2014. Dallas was the son and only child of the late Raymond and Virgie Sears Turpin and was born on June 13, 1942 in Casey County. The majority of his childhood was spent in the Shriner's Hospital for Children in Lexington. Dallas was married 51 years to his wife, Patricia Chelf Turpin. Dallas was an auto mechanic working at many auto dealerships in and around the Indianapolis area. He owned and operated a Texaco station from 1967 to 1969. He also owned and operated Capitol Auto Radiator in the Lockerbie Square area in Indianapolis throughout the 80's and 90's. Northern Owen County became his home in 1989. Dallas loved all things of nature. He so enjoyed music from classical to country but his passion was his family and bass fishing. He belonged to clubs and fishing tournaments; he loved a challenge, and his trophies line a shelf. Dallas is survived by his beloved wife, Patricia; cherished daughter, Tina Bryant; adored granddaughter Veronica Bryant-Simonds, all of Gosport, Ind.; his mother-in-law, Sara Chelf-Pittman of Spencer, Ind.; and several beloved family members in and around the Casey County area. He was preceded in death not only by his parents but several family members in and around Casey County. The funeral service was held July 15 at the Chandler Funeral Home-Whitaker Chapel in Gosport, Ind. with Pastor Ben Lopossa officiating. Burial was at Hudson Hill Cemetery.
