Troy

James Edward Tillery, loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away on June 22, 2022, at the age of 62.  Funeral services will be on Monday, June 27, 2022, at 11:00am at Green Hills Funeral Home.  Visitation will be on Sunday, June 26, 2022, from 4:00-6:00pm.  Rev. Wayne Locklar officiating.  Pallbearers are Eddie Tillery, Blake Tillery, Ronnie Minor, Steven Adams, Jim Adams, and Gene White.  Honorary pallbearers are three grandsons, J.D. Tillery, Hunter Smith, and Jayce Smith. 

Mr. Tillery enjoyed a simple life and could fix most anything.  Everyday he used his skills of a handyman to fix up a house or paint a room.  When he wasn’t working around town, he enjoyed fishing and watching old westerns.  Spending time with family was important, and he always had a good joke to tell! He will be missed by all who loved him. 

Loving survivors include his wife, Avelina Tillery; children, Eddie “Peewee” Tillery (Trudie), Kristi Lewis (Jerrick), Tommy Tillery, Troy Tillery; grandchildren, Blake Tillery, J. D. Tillery, Hunter Smith, Jayce Smith, McKinnley Smith; siblings, Bruce Branton, Phillip Branton, Kathy Johnson, Gwen Robson (Howie); as well as several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Chalker & Shirley Branton; and his son, John Edward Tillery.
