Claude D. Turpin, age 80, of Cambridge died June 26, 2018 at Rosewood Senior Living in Cambridge. Burial will be held at a later date at Alexandria Memorial Gardens in Woodworth, Louisiana.
Claude Donald Turpin was born April 6, 1938 in Indian Valley, VA and passed away at the age of 80 in Cambridge, MN on June 26, 2018. Claude traveled with the Mighty Thomas Carnival for many years until his unfortunate accident that caused him to loose his memory. After many many many years of searching, his only brother, George Turpin went to his heavenly home not knowing if his brother was dead or alive. Shortly after George’s death, we found him and were able to send him photos from the past to help with his memory and spoke to him often on the phone.
Claude is survived by his only living relatives, Donald Turpin of Keller, Texas, and a great nephew, Chad Redmon. He is proceeded in death by his parents, Iva Frances Higgs Turpin Mosher and Clayton Monroe Turpin, and one nephew Daniel Turpin.
Graveside Services will be held at Alexandria Memorial Gardens in Woodworth, LA at a later date where he will be laid to rest next to his only brother George.
Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Rosewood Senior Living and the staff at St. Croix Hospice. In addition, many thanks to the VanderMey family who provided a loving home for Claude for many years until his move to Rosewood.
