Erwin “Earl” Turnipseed RIP



About Erwin “Earl” Turnipseed

Erwin “Earl” Turnipseed was born March 10, 1959
7th of 8 siblings.  He loved gospel music and could sing any song. He loved his Red Oak Church and could tell you anything about Red Oak! A dedicated and dependable church member, die hard Atlanta Falcon’s fan, an avid movie goer, a very sharp dresser, a good cook, and he could even decorate pretty well!  Desert was one of his favorite foods to eat

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me – Psalm 23:4

During the play rehearsal “The Trial” Earl accidentally revealed his middle name, “Lamar”.   Red Oak will miss the sweet sound of his singing voice, his commitment to any entity that needed his support, and his overall presence. Rest with Jesus, Erwin “Earl” Lamar Turnipseed. Until we meet again…

    Rest In Peace Earl. You have truly blessed us with your voice. I said a prayer for your family today that God would touch each one of them with His healing hand and give them strength, comfort, and peace through this time of sorrow!
    Missing you already!

    Bro Turnipseed you will be missed not only by me, but by everyone who’s sat in the pew at Red Oak on Sunday mornings and listened as you inspired us with your melodious voice. Church will never be the same without watching you energetically directing our choir. Farewell, my friend, until we meet again.
