Obituary for William Tyler Sturgeon

Kathleen, GA – William Tyler Sturgeon, 77, died at his residence on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 with his wife and son at his bedside. Due to current covid-19 restrictions, services will be postponed and announced later. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the First Baptist Church of Perry, 1105 Main St., Perry, GA 31069.
William was born on March 28, 1943 in San Diego, CA to the late Ellsworth W and Ruth (Guyon) Sturgeon. He faithfully and honorably served his country in the United States Navy. He worked at PPG Industries as an Engineer until his retirement. He enjoyed being in the outdoors and all that it had to offer such as camping, backpacking, running, and playing volleyball. William was very independent and self-sufficient, in that he refused to pay anyone to repair anything that he could fix himself. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Left to cherish his memory is his beloved wife, Deanna Sturgeon; son: Nick Sturgeon (Meredith); daughters: Kim Jones (Stephen), Kathy Ramey and Susan Sandifer; grandchildren: Liam Sturgeon and Weston Sturgeon; brothers: Rick Sturgeon and Trace Sturgeon.
Please visit to sign the online guestbook and to leave a memorial tribute for the family. With honor, Burpee-Scott Memorial Chapel & Crematory has been entrusted with arrangements.

We are so sorry about the loss of Ty. We really loved him. When we would do the yard he would come outside and and sit and want to talk so I would talk for a little bit and I would tell him I needed to get busy. He would sit and watch us and then he would fall asleep and almost fall out of the chair so I would make sure he got back into the house.
Ty loved pecan pie and special cookies I made for him.
He will be missed
