Tilley was a veteran and served his county well in its time of need. He recieved many awards for his bravery during the war including a Good Conduct Medal, a Combat Infantry Badge, and six Bronze Battle Stars for being in an initial landing.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Jessie Miles (Bishop) Archer; brothers, Herbert, Marvin, Hershell, Kenneth, and Lavoy Archer; and a sister Ruth Worlow.

Tilley is survived by sister, Teddy Lea Murphy, of Meridian, Texas; and many other family members and friends.
